Family Hotel in the heart of Lionshead Village

Families of all ages appreciate the Antlers at Vail’s comfortable condominium suites, which offer all the comforts of home you could expect from a Vail family hotel. A full-service kitchen allows families to keep groceries on hand, serve homemade meals — and even enjoy a cook-out with the gas-fired barbeque grill. Large families can reserve a spacious multi-room suite, while smaller families may want to take advantage of the Antlers’ cozy 1-bedroom condominiums – with a separate bunkroom. The Antlers’ convenient location and reasonable rates have made it a favorite family gathering spot since the hotel first opened its doors in 1972; many family groups return year after year!

Antlers has received a wide range of media coverage, including being named a SKI magazine 2021 top Vail lodging for families, a 2021 top November destination by Travel +Leisure, as well as family travel blogger kudos as both a “Best Ski Hotel for Families” and a best “Summer Camp for Families.” Find out for yourself why families love to make the Antlers at Vail home for their Vail family vacation!

This family-friendly hotel is a popular ‘home base’ for family reunions, and many extended families return to the Antlers year after year. The McQuillen Mundus family holds the record with 27 reunions here! The larger condominiums at this Vail family hotel make an excellent home base for large family meals while smaller condos are available for those family members wanting their own space. The creekside pool area makes for a fantastic gathering spot for extended families.

Vail in the summer is an outdoor playground for parents and children alike. From playing at the outdoor parks to soaring down an alpine coaster on the mountain, there’s sure to be something for everyone. On Sundays the Vail Farmers Market will delight all the senses. There’s also nothing quite like taking in a concert at the Gerald R Ford Amphitheater on a beautiful summer evening.

We love our stay at Antlers at Vail. We come to Vail almost every summer and it never disappoints. Not only the location is great but the service as well. We love being next to the river. I hope to come back soon! The unit was super comfortable for the four of us.

We had a wonderful family ski vacation. The Antlers is conveniently located in Lionshead and we never needed our car. We had a great experience and it was perfect for our family with small kids. The Eagle Bahn Gondola is a 5 minute walk.

If your travellng with family or friends and a hotel doesn’t meet your needs for privacy and comfort, Antllers should be at the top of your list for consideration. For a ski vacation its proximity to the mountain and ski valet make it a clear choice.
