About Larry Blivas
My wife and I have enjoyed over 20 terrific years at our Chateau in Vail. We love the the winters and have come to enjoy the summers with equal beauty and endless amount of activities like, hiking, biking, fishing, listening to concerts at the Ford Amphitheater and enjoying the best food. We know you will find our home just as terrific as we have and look forward to having you as one of our guests.
Larry Blivas purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2002
Why Larry Blivas chose Cascade Village
Of all of the properties in Vail, this Location is truly the best and now that the Talisa Resort - a Starwood Hotel has invested $60MM in renovations, we truly do live next to the NEW Grand Hyatt 5 STAR LUXURY RESORT WITH ALL NEW INTERIORS, SPA, TOP RATED RESTAURANT, BAR, AND with all the amenities you could ever seek in a top resort in the world. Arguably the most famous mountain town in Colorado, Vail offers a wealth of outdoor recreation yearlong. Ski the famous Back Bowls, hike through wildflower-filled meadows, or explore the European-inspired Vail Village where visitors can dine at posh restaurants and shop high-end boutiques. Grand Hyatt Vail makes an ideal home base in this stunning Rocky Mountain town.

Great house but outdoor area needs improvement
This was a great house with great communication with property manager and owner. They went out of their way to make sure we had a good stay and had everything we needed.
The inside of the house is well laid out. The downstairs area with three bedrooms is great for families with children.
One of the features we particularly liked were the operable skylights.
However, there are a couple of things that I wished I knew before booking. First, the description on VRBO says the house has A/C but it does not. I understand most mountain homes do not have A/C...however, we specifically picked this house bc it said AC on the description and were disappointed it did not.
Also, the outdoor area could use some work. There was a metal table and chairs with no cushions to sit upstairs. Downstairs had limited seating that was dirty and had debris and pool chemicals piled up. We were looking forward to sitting outside to enjoy the Colorado weather and it just wasn’t conducive to doing it. I don’t think it would take much to make the outside area great!
If the air conditioning description is removed from VRBO and the outside was to be improved it would definitely get 5 stars.
Best Chalet in Vail
What a wonderful house! We visited with my husband, parents, and niece and nephew. Everyone had a room and a bathroom. Bedrooms are comfortable, cozy, with great decor complete with at-home amenities. Bathrooms are beautiful with high end finishes. Kitchen is complete with everything you need to make a variety of dishes during your stay. Grocery store is a 5 minute drive away. The view is just spectacular and the location hard to beat - walk to bus transit and chair lift close by. Thank you so much Larry! We will be coming back!
Carrie, So Happy that you enjoyed our Chalet and all the conveniences, terrific location and one of the best Views in the Vail Valley. Most people can't understand how hard we've worked to make our Mountain Chalet one of the most memorable vacations anyone could experience. We hope you return for our repeat clients discount and appreciate your kind comments. Enjoyeveryday! Sincerely, Larry and Julie - Owners!
Wonderful location and beautiful home
We had a great time at Larry's house. The bedrooms were all very generous in size , were decorated beautifully and had very comfortable beds. The home is about a .5 mile drive to the the Cascade lift which is very easy to access and has a public parking lot ($25/day) about 200 yards from the Cascade chair lift.
Larry was very easy to work with and was responsive to any questions that I had. I would definitely stay here again
Fantastic Vail Experience!!
The Chateau is uniquely situated in Cascade Village with beautiful views of the Valley from the living room and hot tub. I had a group of friends in for Super Bowl weekend - the fantastic curved screen TV and comfortable living room worked great for the game.
The renovated lounge and restaurant at hotel Talisa was perfect for Apres - followed by time in the hot tub to relax after skiing.
Great trip - Great house - Great Lounge at Talisa!
Bart, So glad you had a great time and enjoyed our Chateau as much as we do! Please come back again for your return guest/Client discount and have a great week!
The Best Ski Vacation Ever!
We just returned from a great week at Larry's home which is amazing and attributed to our "Best ski vacation ever". Thank you Larry for your gracious hospitality. The pictures do not do it justice. The view from the house looking West is incredible and the house is extremely spacious, well decorated and very comfortable. We would start our day sipping coffee admiring the unobstructed view of the mountains and then gear up for for a day on the Hill. The house has everything you would need to enjoy your stay, We had 4 adults and 5 kids (11-17) and everyone was happy and had plenty of space. The flow of the entire house upstairs and downs stairs was perfect. The kids utilized the downstairs media room while the adults enjoyed the evenings sitting by the wood burning fire eating cheese and drinking wine. The Kitchen is well equipped (appliances) and has all that you would need to prepare your meals. There are many TV's throughout the house and the new large TV in the Living room made watching the Football game feel like you were on the field. The location of the house is also a huge plus. It is a quick 10 min walk to the Hotel Talisa and the Cascade (Chair #20). While Lions Head and Vail Village were crowded at the start of the ski day we simply walked on to the Cascade chair. (could not have been any easier) We also rented our Skis from Venture Sports (located in the Hotel Talisa) and they were terrific. You drop off your equipment in the evenings and pick up "warm" boots to start your day. It was so easy and the Hotel also had great amenities for both kids and adults. (Apres ski/Hot Chocolate everyday 4-6).
Depending on the day we also skied right back to the Venture Sports/Hotel Talisa to drop of our skis, a quick walk back to the house or call to be picked up, so convenient.
Larry is a gracious host and very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our kids are already asking to come back.
Jamie, thanks so much for the kind words and glad you had a terrific time as we always do at our Chateau in Vail. Hope you return again for the repeat clients discount! Have a great week!
