The Sonnenalp tradition of hospitality goes back nearly a century to Bavaria, where the Faessler family opened a hotel that epitomized the finest in personalized service in beautiful surroundings. The spectacular mountain setting inspired the Sonnenalp name – “Sun on the Mountains” – a moniker that translated perfectly when the Faessler family first fell in love with Vail and opened their second hotel in 1979. Five generations after their humble beginnings, the Sonnenalp is a thriving part of the family of Sonnenalp hotels, offering the same warmth and hospitality as the original Bavarian farm house in a setting of true luxury.
