Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Located at the base of Beaver Creek Mountain, the AAA 4-Diamond Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch resort offers year-round luxury. Set among beautiful yet rustic surroundings, there are plenty of outdoor activities to take part in and top-notch service to make you feel at home. The resort is a grand lodge-like building set within the mountain. Guests are greeted at the main entrance by the hotel's St. Bernard, Bachelor.

The resort offers ski-in, ski-out access allowing skiers to glide right off the mountain to the slope side Daniel's Bar & Grill with an outdoor space with fire pits, live music and barbecues. An in-house ski outfitter can provide clothes, and a ski concierge gets equipment ready for guests, and a nanny takes care of kids who are enrolled in ski school so their parents can hit the slopes. Take in the stunning scenery while golfing, fly fishing, mountain biking, horseback riding or white-water rafting (fees apply) during warmer months. Families can make s'mores around an outdoor fire pit and take part in yard games together. 

Guest rooms feature feather-top beds and marble bathrooms with deep-soaking tubs and separate rain showers. Many offer panoramic views of the mountains or valley and some have a balcony or fireplace. They all have upscale decor and modern furnishing with a Western theme giving the rooms a rustic yet luxurious feel. Club level rooms have private balconies and fireplaces and grant guests access to the eighth-floor lounge with a variety of enticing beverages and small bites throughout the day.

Pamper at the Forbes Travel Guide 4-star spa, and dine at three restaurants including Buffalos, a family-oriented casual spot with a warm and cozy atmosphere to share a meal, watch sports with a regional craft beer. There's also a year-round outdoor heated pool, tennis courts and a full Ritz Kids program. Beaver Creek Village is just a 10-minute shuttle away, and Vail Village is 20 minutes away for dining, nightlife, shopping and more.

From the press:
  • "The stone-and-timber resort crowns Beaver Creek Mountain above the bustle of Vail Valley like one of King Ludwig's Bavarian castles. Inside this imposing hotel are amenities fit for a queen or king: panoramic views from most rooms, stone fireplaces in more than a third, and high, plush beds in all." -- Fodor's
  • "It dominates the base of Beaver Creek Mountain, creating a postcard-pretty image as skiers schuss down the corduroy Cabin Fever trail to it, where ski valets stand at the ready." -- Travel + Leisure

Other Comments: As others shared, I would have been disappointed paying full price and hearing the conversations in the rooms next to us. Walls do not bar much noise. Other than that, property is gorgeous and staff was excellent.

Enjoyed Most: The staff was amazing (with the exception of the gentleman that shoved the towels at me when I requested towels).
Other Comments: It appears housekeeping did not finish preparing our room. No shampoo, soap or hand towels. When someone did come to deliver these items, they brought a robe rather than towels. It wasn't until late that evening I realized we did not have any wash cloths either. No information was provided on cost on food items available in the room. They charged $125 for our non-shedding dog to stay in our room. And I received a phone call at 7:00 AM asking if I had in fact ordered room service (no I did not but thanks for waking me) When I explained these problems upon checking out I did not receive an apology - just an assurance I would not be charged for the missing towels.
