My sisters and I try to find something fun to do every year that involves our entire families. My husband saw how close that kept all of us, and he asked me if I would plan an outing for his side of the family. He has three brothers who are all married and have children, plus his parents are still quite active. His side of the family is a lot more active than my sisters and I are, so I asked him what he thought about looking at luxury rentals in Vail for a ski vacation together.
Since his brothers and their families all enjoy skiing as well, he thought it was great. I am not going to say it was easy to find a common time between his three brothers, his parents and our own schedule, but where there is will, there is a way. That is how I was able to finally manage to secure a range of dates that we all promised to block off from anything else. The next thing I had to do was find a luxury rental that would hold all of us. We wanted to stay in the same place, so I looked at rental houses instead of hotels.
The Avanti Chalet turned out to be the most perfect rental ever for us. It has seven bedroom suites and an incredible nine bathrooms. When there are as many people living in the same house for a week, trust me, nine bathrooms comes in very handy! The rooms are all designed with comfort in mind, and we had a glorious time making that our home away from home. In fact, we had so much fun that I am going to suggest to my sisters that we do something like this for our next family get together.
