Welcome to Lake Creek, CO
A peaceful, scenic wonderland tucked away in the mountainside.
Lake Creek is a beautiful valley community tucked into the hills just west of Edwards. The town is no stranger to impressive high-end shops and thrilling ranching activities. Despite its convenient location, Lake Creek’s wide-open spaces somehow feel miles away from the bustle of Edwards and Vail Village. Lake Creek’s peaceful gated communities and luxurious cabins and ranches feel right at home amidst its rural setting.
Each home in Lake Creek is striking and unique, and they stand alone with their own little slice of the Colorado mountains to thrive on. With striking views of the Sawatch Mountain Range, these ranches are perfect for those with an independent spirit. Lake Creek offers its residents ultimate privacy and unrivaled serenity. This is the location of some of the county’s most luxurious homes.

Lake Creek represents the very best of the valley, and the residents uphold this standard. With large homes and the privacy of the high upper mountains, Lake Creek residents treasure their independence and value the peace and quiet this charming and vibrant town allows.
As with all ranches, Lake Creek residents have lifestyles that agree with the solitary hillsides and sweeping open pastures that are so abundant in the area. With beautiful creeks and rivers and views of the rugged Sawatch pass, there are plenty of wildlife sightings and breathtaking views to behold. Residents are at home amongst the wilderness — from the White River National Forest to the Holy Cross Wilderness and endless Bureau of Land Management lands — but are still only minutes away from world-renowned skiing, golfing, shopping and dining.
Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping
Lake Creek is located near ample amenities in the heart of nearby Edwards. For an afternoon or evening of cocktails and brews, Gore Range Brewery
offers a casual atmosphere, artisanally produced and locally sourced beer, and excellent food. If the vibrant atmosphere of a brewery isn’t what you’re looking for, The Rose
is a peaceful place to gather and unwind. The Rose is on a mission to produce some of the best locally sourced food in Vail Valley and top-notch quality craft cocktails to celebrate any season. The dining options don’t end there — for a unique setting, try Craftsman
, a culinary experience that balances “artisan expertise with everyday approachability.” For a shopping experience that’s second to none, Edwards’ notable Riverwalk is the perfect place for Lake Creek residents to shop.
Things to Do
At night, Lake Creek’s vast open spaces and dark sky provide excellent stargazing and camping. You can even camp out on the expanse of your own personal property and explore the wilderness from your own backyard. If you’d like a more guided adventure, Bearcat Stables
in the nearby Cordillera Metro District offers outdoor experiences like no other. From Bearcat, you can set out for a horseback trail ride or take a tour in a carriage.
Since Lake Creek boasts a milder climate than the rest of the valley, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a morning mid-afternoon tee-off at the likes of Eagle Springs
or Red Sky Ranch
. If you’re looking for things to do in town, there are plenty of options for enjoying yourself. Visit the boutique shops in Vail, the cinema, churches, parks, and the other athletic facilities of the surrounding community.
Many of the schools that serve this area are in the Greater Vail area. However, all of those options are top-tier and cover all the educational bases.
