Property Description

Introducing 132 Shooting Star

Authentic, Timeless and Respectful of its Natural Environment – A Resort within a Resort!


Mountain Star…. One of the most inspirational living experiences in the Vail Valley. The gated neighborhood consists of only 90 homesites on 1,300 acres, providing a peaceful mountain setting for buyers seeking exclusivity and privacy with commanding views.



132 Shooting Star, known as Meadow Lodge, sits on 2.8 acres of land, nestled in a quiet aspen grove, overlooking a spacious alpine meadow where snowshoeing, cross country skiing and hiking is accessed right outside your back door. Architect Ned Gwathmey's unique design allows the house to roll with the natural slope of the land, providing inspiring views to the southwest toward Castle Peak. Craftsmanship, authenticity and tradition were of utmost importance in building this private retreat. Known for his attention to detail and knowledge of high mountain building, George Shaeffer of Shaeffer Hyde Construction was the only choice for a contractor – adding great value to this home! 



This unique property has all the space and amenities that today's buyers seek for at-home work, recreation, health and well-being. Meadow Lodge consists of 5 separate but connected structures surrounding a lovely courtyard and surrounded by fabulous heated outdoor patios, an outdoor spa, firepit, stunning water feature and children's playground. When not working or home-schooling from his and her offices, enjoy the fully appointed pool-house including a large indoor pool complemented by impressive landscaping on one side and a wall of windows to the outdoor spa on the other, a fitness area, steam room and juice bar. The lower level with in-home theater and game area could also serve as a playroom or extra sleeping area. It includes plenty of valuable storage as well. For ease of living for you and your guests, the main home and its adjoining private lodges live mainly on one level and offer over 8,800 square feet in a resort-like setting. 


The Main Lodge 

The Lodge is the focus of the home consisting of the common rooms, which are framed with massive, hand-hewn log trusses. The Great Room is anchored by a large, stone, wood-burning fireplace, providing a feeling of rustic elegance. The spacious dining area overlooks the courtyard between the lodges. This home has hosted many family, friends and charitable events!


The kitchen, with Thermador double ovens and cooktop, Sub-Zero refrigerator, 2 Asko dishwashers, 2 full sinks, slab granite countertops and generous pantry makes cooking a breeze. An eat-in kitchen nook and adjacent hearth room with handsome cabinetry and stone fireplace makes this space a favorite gathering area within the lodge. 


The lower level of the lodge includes a media room, additional living area that could be used for extra sleeping space, bathroom, wine storage and valuable crawlspace storage. A large guest suite above the 3-car garage provides privacy for guests or a caretaker.


The Master Suite Lodge 

The Master Suite Lodge offers a private retreat for the homeowner. A vaulted, beamed bedroom is the heart of the suite which features a lovely stone fireplace and large windows looking west to the meadow through a grove of aspen trees. Beautiful wildlife can often be observed year-round from these windows. A luxurious bathroom features a large steam shower and spa tub as well as 2 large, walk-in closets. Two studies/offices complete the master suite, either of which could be used for additional sleeping, nurseries, or school rooms.


The Guest Cottage 

Family members and guests will enjoy the ultimate privacy of the Cottage which is a separate building with its own entry from the main courtyard. It is also connected, however, to the Main Lodge via the glass-walled main hallway. The Sitting Room is the heart of the Cottage with a warming fireplace and wet bar with dishwasher, refrigerator, sink and microwave. Three en-suite guest rooms with private baths surround the sitting room.


The Pool House (Natatorium) 

What makes this Lodge truly a resort within a resort is the Pool House, a favorite with grandchildren and guests! Not a detail was missed in the design of the pool house, complete with stunning log trusses and large windows looking out at the surrounding aspen groves and wildflowers. The natatorium offers a spa-like experience with its 15x30 foot saline pool with automatic pool cover, workout area, juice bar and bathroom with a large steam shower. Three double doors allow walk-out access to the heated stone patio with in-ground spa hot tub, firepit and playground overlooking the water feature. 


Mountain Star is a community in the Vail Valley unlike any other. Some of the most architecturally impressive, innovative, and quality-built estate homes are located in Mountain Star, where residents, through their design, have the freedom to express themselves. The full-time ranch manager housed at Ranch Central is always on-site to look after homeowners. 


Finally, Mountain Star is but 10 minutes to Beaver Creek and 15 minutes to Vail, and within minutes of numerous golf courses. To find this unique and private lodge, within the gates of such a community, is truly a windfall. What more could one want in a Mountain Home!

About Mountain Star

For buyers seeking exclusivity with a view, Mountain Star is a community with just 90 homesteads across 1,300 acres of rolling meadows, sage hills and forested glades.   With a development philosophy that thoughtfully integrates these single-family homes with their beautiful, natural surroundings, Mountain Star’s sense of place feels less like a gated development of homes and more like an escape within nature.   Privacy and serenity are felt throughout the community, where cross-country trails for hiking and biking allow residents an abundance of places to explore.   It’s just minutes from Avon, Beaver Creek and Vail, yet it’s one of the valley’s best-kept secrets. Mountain Star is a place where understated opulence sits tucked into the trees and atop the hillside, where views of the Gore and Sawatch Mountain Ranges can erase the hustle and bustle in the valley below.
