We booked this property through Vacasa for December 18th through Dec 21st. It was advertised as "Ski in/Ski out" and we decided to pay the extra for the convenience of walking outside and getting on a lift to ski. Unfortunately when we got there the list was not running for the season yet. This was bad enough, but when I called Vacasa to complain, they basically offered my a discount of $25 per nigh! I could not believe it. Although the property was Ok, it was dated and in need of renovations badly. There were much nicer/newer properties available when we booked for less than half the price we paid. What a scam!!
Great location by the Elkhorn lift. Condo was a 2BR/2BA unit (Lower 305) and the only negative would be that the in-unit washer/dryer combo made an incredible racket and we couldn’t figure a way to make it quieter. Still - unit was exceptionally equipped; I think the only thing it didn’t have was a stereo. Even with COVID restrictions and reservations - we were able to cap a day of skiing with a dip in the hot-tub. The unit came with a spacious ski locker on the lobby level which also led to the back door that is steps away from the Elkhorn lift. (Be advised the trails around Elkhorn are blue and don’t receive grooming - there is an alternative route off the end of Intertwine which is much easier for the greenish/blueish crowd.)
Our family of 8 stayed in a 3 bedroom condo and had such a great time! 10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants, numerous hiking trails, next to the lift, plenty of excursions. We stayed 7 days and didn’t want to leave!
Loved the building and location for being off the slopes it was still fairly convenient to get around. the bus services are great with the app. The room was comfortable and clean and even had two humidifiers and a gas fireplace that made the ambiance and temperatures perfect inside. We decided to have grocery delivery and cook a couple meals for our family to save us the time and effort of going out in the cold with the kids. The hot tub was a really nice way to end the day after the skiing. Front desk staff very attentive and we were able to meet some of the locals who owned the units in the building- everyone was super friendly and helpful. Will definitely come back!
The unit was just re-modelled so everything was new. 6 people can sleep comfortably in beds. The resort is 5 minutes walking distance from the village center. You can ski in and out descending into Bachelor's Gulch. our experience was better than expectations.
This was a VRBO rental and a disaster. The owner had not informed management of our arrival so we had to wait for 3.5 hours for the room to be cleaned. The owner refused to give up the money we paid to him so that the management could place us in another room. The owner never bothered to check in with us afterwards which was in my opinion very unprofessional. The kitchen had locks and double padlocks on half of the cabinets. It was missing basic essential items such as a cutting board, a pot, tongs, strainer etc. The decor looked as though the owners had gone to a resale shop in town and decorated the place with furnishings from the 60s to 80s. The tree horn and bench when you enter the unit was sitting on four pieces of cut 4x4’s to elevate it. There were four nasty, dusty “arrangements” that had cattails and dried flowers that the owners had clearly picked themselves. The owner told me that the sofa bed was brand new and “high end” which was clearly a lie. No one was able to sleep on it due to bars in the back. There was no rug in the family room, just bare floor. The carpet in the master was matted and stained. There was a very old 1950’s style club chair in the master. There were holes in the walls. Paint jobs in several areas that were clearly done by the owners and not professional. The bathroom cabinets were also locked. There wasn’t even a blow dryer available. The tub collected standing water in it during showering. Gross! Our experience at Beaver Creek is long and we have stayed at some amazing places. This unit was NOT one of them. However, the Borders Lodge has an amazing ski in ski out location and the management did their best to assist us in a bad situation by providing kitchen essentials and a broom (yes that’s right, there was no broom in the unit to keep the place tidy) during our stay. All in all, under great management and great location. Just don’t rent lower Borders 202!…
We stayed in Unit 401 (lower borders) that faced the slopes and had an A+ experience. The kitchen was fully stocked. The Elkhorn chair lift is about 60 feet from the back door. The unit has a ground floor ski locker. The walk to the village was 15 minutes. The best part? We never had to ride on a bus during our stay. Highly recommend.
I like staying at Borders Lodge in Beaver Creek resort when I stay more than 2 days. This way I can cook some meals. Condos I stayed so far were very clean and well maintained. It has a jacuzzi that I love using at night and this is so relaxing.
Given that Borders Lodge is described as a three-star facility, it definitely exceeds expectations. Settled high above the road, in trees next to a ski run, lodge escapes the busy parts of village yet remains close enough for easy (walking) access to everything. We visited with two granddaughters (5,7 years) and the walk to the village center was always fun (especially since you walk thru a park with play structures). Comparing to several 5-star facilities in village where most lodges were built 20+ years ago, we found our two bedroom unit upgraded, spacious, in great shape (clean, well maintained) and perfectly equipped. As repeated visitors to the village, we always hit the Avon grocery store first, so that we can fix our own breakfasts and/or other meals (as needed by the kids) - the kitchen has everything you may need. As usually in Colorado mountains, there is no air conditioning - but we did not need one despite temperatures reaching record levels (both in Denver and in the mountains). The staff (Kim & Tim) were very attentive to our needs, and we had no problems with the room service.…
Boarders was an awesome choice for 4 first time skier's! The lift behind us was great for the faster learners and it was a short shuttle to the school for the others. The property was clean and spacious. Beds were comfortable and wifi was great for the evenings. Staff was helpful and friendly.
