We booked this delightful B and B last minute and from the moment we arrived Bob and Terry went out of their way to help us. Bob drove us around the town and showed us the easiest way to get up the ski village. They upgraded us from a studio to two bedrooms so the children had their own room. We were quite self contained on the ground floor with a fabulous living room, hot tub and kitchen pretty much to ourselves for a week. Bob showed us all the good local restaurants and we tried a few of those but also loved cooking for ourselves, great to eat in and self cater for a change. The town of Avon has a very good supermarket and an outstanding Liquor shop with a wine selection second to none. Although this is a bed and breakfast and we were treated to the most delicious hearty breakfast and complimentary snack bars, we could just as easily booked it for self catering which it is also set up for. This is the perfect place to rent as a 'condo' as well and next time we plan on bringing some friends along. The walk to the bus is short and easy however I would not want to do it with skis and boots as who wants to walk in ski boots anywhere! There are handy lockers up at Beaver Creek and you can leave your hire skis and poles up there for free. Beaver Creek is awesome, the best resort we have ever been to. Vail is also great and only 10 minutes down the road. Definitely recommend staying in Avon for the good restaurants and supermarkets and choosing where to ski each day. The lift passes cover both resorts. People we met staying up at Beaver Creek complained at the cost of restaurants and the inadequate supermarket there if you're self catering. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at West Beaver Creek Lodge again. And thanks to Bob who woke us up on our final day and got us out the door and on the road quickly, or we would have been snowed in otherwise and missed our flights and connections home. We would recommend taking a car if you are staying here because although Bob kindly offered to drive us, you do really need a car to get around, either to the ski village for the free 2 hour parking there in the evening or just to get to the supermarket.
