The Winter Retreat You’ve Been Missing: Beaver Creek Lodge
Winter is in full swing, temperatures have us bundled up in our warmest layers, and if your plans for winter vacation include snow, that more than likely means a trip to Colorado. The Rocky Mountains have a wide range of snow-blanketed villages and resorts to choose from on your search for the perfect winter wonderland escape.
Whether you’re looking to better hone your relaxation skills outside by the fire, or cutting down the mountain on your gear of choice, there is something for everyone. So, where do you choose this year? There’s cute and cozy Copper Mountain or a luxurious stay in Vail, taking the kids to Steamboat, or party hopping in Breckenridge. The choices are nearly limitless! But, as you review your options, be sure not to overlook the newly renovated boutique hotel Beaver Creek Lodge.
Heading by car from Denver, you pass through impressively high peaks that tower over the twinkling towns below. After a quick two hours, you reach the snowy destination of Beaver Creek, a village teeming with exciting happenings, such as its very own ice-skating rink and snowmobiling, as well as a spectacular fireworks display that occurs nightly.
After a 5 million dollar renovation, the lodge is the newest addition to Marriott’s Autograph Collection and mountain hideaways in the state of Colorado, with so much more to offer than just its beautiful vista. Beaver Creek’s infamous tag line “Not Exactly Roughing It” has new meaning with the lodges’ stylish modifications.
Built with the sole intention of providing you with an unforgettable lodging experience, Beaver Creek Lodge caters to all needs and interests. As you step inside the foyer, you’re greeted with a crackling fire and plush lounge furnishings to nestle into after you check in with the concierge. While you wait, the Grand Bohemian Art Gallery, featuring 150 pieces of artistic individualism, draws you in to admire each distinctive piece.
Your lodging varies in elegance, depending on the specific accommodations you require. Whether you choose to reside in the luxurious Kessler Suite, complete with a decadent bathroom and bedroom experience, or the spacious Family Suite which comfortably houses 6, you are sure to enjoy the contemporary rustic interior design, cozy fireplace, and inviting living areas, which add an extra layer of relaxation during your stay and leave you feeling rejuvenated after a well-spent afternoon in the mountains.
After settling in at your room of choice, you can head out into Beaver Creek village for an assortment of activities as well as varying dining and nightlife experiences. Locals have said that popping into the Golden Eagle Inn and trying the Eagle salad is a must. On the other hand, if you’re leaning towards an evening in a while not sacrificing an impeccable dining experience, the in-hotel restaurant “Alpine + Antlers" features an inclusive, gastronomical menu as well as signature cocktails you will dream of having again.
Aside from the foodie haven, daytime in Beaver Creek is fortuned with some of the best skiing in the country. The season in late November and ends mid-April.
