Arrabelle Chalet 655

Ski-in / ski-out Penthouse at The Arrabelle with Vail Mountain views – revitalized with custom stone-and-wood work and European design

Wrap-around balcony with expansive views of ski runs, ice skating rink, Glockenspiel clock and village square – Exquisite European-style interior décor to complement the Austrian architecture of the Arrabelle – Steps from the gondola with arguably the best ski-in / ski-out location on Vail Mountain.

Perched six floors above Vail Square and claiming an entire wing of the exclusive Arrabelle Resort, this 4,000 square foot, five-bedroom penthouse chalet is a vision of alpine design with flourish. In the great room’s distinctive octagon sitting area, a moss stone fireplace, rich hardwood accents, original art, marble coffee table, and slate-blue mohair upholstery are illuminated by walls of windows that provide a king’s view of the mountain and the European-inspired square below.

Step onto the 280 degree balcony that hugs the great room and survey skiers swooshing down the ski runs, ice skaters circling the rink, and the Arrabelle’s Glockenspiel clock marking the slow and pleasant passage of time—all while tucked cozily in a blanket with a steaming latte warming your hands. Imagine this scene at Christmas, when the square sparkles with lights like a star-filled sky, or in summertime, when thousands of flowers burst into bloom and Austrian music floats up to the balcony.

If you’d rather participate in the alpine painting laid out before you, the Arrabelle Chalet situates you perfectly to do just that: we are located at an ideal ski-in, ski-out location at the base of the gondola, and just a ten-minute walk from Vail Village’s five-star restaurants and elite shopping. Not to mention your access to Arrabelle’s lavish amenities like a rooftop hot tub, lap pool and spa services—amenities that are yours in addition to the solitude and quiet provided by a private residence.

Five Bedrooms (includes two master suites)

Bronze Master Suite: One of two master suites, the Bronze Master presents a warm glow with its corner fireplace, walls coated in a Venetian bronze plaster finish, and custom bedding and upholstery in shimmering hues of gold and alabaster. From the Bronze Master, watch skiers on the slopes or access the wrap-around balcony right from your room. As is the case at all of our signature properties, the beds at the Arrabelle Chalet are like nothing you’ve ever slept in before (our guests insist on this!). In the Bronze Master, a four-poster bed, with a double-pillow top mattress, down/feather pillows and duvet, and Egyptian cotton sheets. Mornings in this suite are indulgent, thanks to the attached marble bath with Jacuzzi soaking tub, steam shower, and TV for watching the day’s ski report while you get ready.

Two Queens Suite: Two queens, one castle. Enjoy this double-occupancy suite with Vail Square views, attached bath, antique trunk-style dresser, and two queen-sized beds that include all the trimmings (pillow-top mattress, down-feather bedding, and Egyptian cotton sheets), plus leather headboards to lean against when you settle in with a book. But be warned: our beds are so unbelievably comfortable you might struggle to make it past page one.

Vail Square King Suite: The Vail Square King Suite offers an en suite bathroom, a king-sized bed with a custom leather headboard, classic and beautiful lighting fixtures, and a plush sitting area. Open the curtains, settle into the roomy chair, stretch your feet onto the leather ottoman, and take in the royal views of Vail Square’s European architecture and the Glockenspiel.

Turret Master Suite: The Turret Master Suit is the ultimate indulgence. It entices with its craftsman stone fireplace, king-sized bed with cream leather headboard, and grand windows that ensure the Vail Square and ski mountain will be the first sights to greet you in the morning. A turret sitting area surrounds you in even more glass for taking in Vail’s beauty. But the view doesn’t stop there: a five-piece marble bathroom offers another vantage point, plus spa-like comforts like a Jacuzzi soaking tub and a marble vanity.

Denim and Wool Bunkroom: The bunkroom is a kid favorite—the perfect place to hide away and slip into dreams of one day winning Olympic gold on the slopes. The bunkroom is conveniently adjacent to the laidback, Secondary Family Room, with its kitchenette, large flat screen, plush sectional and fun games—like a Nintendo Wii—for the whole family.

Fully Equipped Chef-Style Kitchen: If you have a culinary need or want, we likely have the tools to create it. Equipped for the master chef, our kitchen shines with Viking stainless steel appliances and a plethora of small appliances, including a Nespresso machine. The cabinets were custom-painted in light gray tones and accented with moss rock—the perfect complement to the white marble counters. Custom, hand-crafted glass pennants are suspended over four barstools—a place to gather for casual breakfast or a glass of wine while the chef works their magic.

Great Room: Our fully stocked liquor cabinet and wine rack provide all the ingredients for a relaxing conversation in the great room’s stunning octagon sitting area, which is lavishly furnished with two mohair sofas draped in velvety faux fur blankets. The centerpiece, though, is a coffee table crafted from a slab of granite that was hand-selected. Crowning the handcrafted octagonal ceiling inset, a dramatic filigreed chandelier warms the room, as does the custom stone fireplace accented by a striking piece of art camouflaging the flat panel HDTV. A state-of-the-art Savant entertainment system provides Netflix, Hulu and Pandora as a backdrop while you entertain. The formal dining area seats eight and overlooks the ski mountain. Adorned with original art and antiques, including a French Regency buffet with vintage stone top and authentic Trumeau plaster mirror with original artwork, the dining area is a fitting backdrop for a memorable meal. French doors open to the wrap-around terrace with bistro table—a perfect perch for an espresso while people-watching—and an outdoor cooking area with gas grill.Arabelle Retreat 555 – Fact Sheet

The Arrabelle Retreat is suspended above Vail Square and provides a clear vantage point for the activity below—and on the mountain beyond.

Take in these charming views from three separate balconies, as well as from the dazzling, octagon-shaped sitting room with its panoramic walls of windows.

Four Bedrooms (includes two master suites)

Each bedroom at the Arrabelle Retreat has its own personality and setup, so every guest, like Goldilocks, can find a room that’s just right.

But unlike Goldilocks, you won’t find an uncomfortable bed in the place. All beds are, as our guests often remark, among the most comfortable in the world. We credit our top-of-the-line Serta double pillow-top mattresses, Egyptian cotton sheets, and sumptuous pillows and duvets, which are made from an exquisite down & feather blend.

The Provincial Master Suite: The Provincial Master radiates sophisticated comfort, thanks to a Parisian color palate of ivories, browns, and pale blues, plus a warm Venetian bronze plaster finish on the walls. This room boasts views of the ski run and fine furnishings like a Pierre Deux armoire, which houses a large flat screen TV, and an antique daybed outfitted with French linens. And, of course, a signature king-sized, four-poster bed—with all its lavish trimmings—will usher you into an amazing night’s sleep.

There’s also an attached five-piece marble bathroom with a Jacuzzi soaker tub, a steam shower, and a TV.

The Chambray Master Suite: This extra-large suite captures the woodsy feeling of the Colorado mountains, with accents of cornflower blue and deep red, and a rustic, four-poster, king-sized bed prepared, of course, with the signature comforts of a Cuvée bed. A sitting area in the turret provides views of the mountain, plus a pair of cozy chairs facing a fireplace. The en-suite, five-piece marble bathroom offers a beautiful Jacuzzi soaking tub to soothe overworked muscles after a day on the mountain.

For the utmost in flexibility, this bedroom also offers a twin trundle bed in addition to the two twins, plus an en suite bathroom.

Media Room and/or King Suite: Another flexible set-up for a variety of guest situations, the media room has its own en suite bath, plus a king-sized Murphy-style bed, which pulls down from the wall and gets the same “Cuvée treatment” as every bed in the house. When the extra bed isn’t in use, the room can be enjoyed as a laidback media room, thanks to its large, plush sectional with a chaise lounge, and the large flat screen television. For those who bring a little work with them to Vail, this room also has a desk area with a laptop and printer.

Fully Equipped Chef-Style Kitchen: The chef-designed kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances and an impressive selection of small appliances—from practical to gourmet—including a Nespresso machine. The Cuvée design team applied a striking antique grey finish to the kitchen cabinets and stocked them with everything our guests could need to prepare and enjoy a gourmet meal (or have someone else do it for them).

For the grilling connoisseur, the balcony off the kitchen offers a gas grill and an outdoor dining table overlooking Vail Square. Enjoy a juicy steak and lift your wine glass to a pitch-perfect vacation in the heart of Vail.
