Overview

Located at the base of Beaver Creek Mountain, the AAA 4-Diamond Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch resort offers year-round luxury. Set among rustic surroundings, the property is known for its plethora of outdoor activities and top-notch service that makes guests 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, 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 horseback riding, fly-fishing or ice climbing.  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, which has beverages and small bites throughout the day.

Pamper yourself at the Forbes Travel Guide 4-star spa and dine at three restaurants including Buffalos, a family-oriented casual spot where you can watch sports with a regional craft beer and American fare. There are also a year-round outdoor heated pool, tennis courts and a full Ritz Kids program. Beaver Creek Village is 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

Service was fantastic. Food was delicious - but a little extra expensive - even knowing we were at the Ritz.

without the discount it would have been very expensive with valet fee and resort fee. also, offer more activities for families and things to do at the resort. The hikes were canceled while we were there.

The service was outstanding. They knew we and others had the travel zoo deal but treated everyone like only the Ritz does so well. We learned of a family loss during the visit and they sent wine and chocolate to our room with a condolence card.
