Wolcott

One of the oldest and most historic areas in the Vail Valley, Wolcott has preserved its heritage and “old west” feel unlike any other place in Eagle County. Vast open spaces, gently sloping hillsides and the rushing Eagle River define Wolcott today.

Large and secluded home sites define residential living in Wolcott, maintaining an authentic western feel. Other options include private residences on Bellyache Ridge, as well as the newly developed Red Sky Ranch, an exquisite golf course community.
