After not being on ski's for 25 years I decided it was time to take the plunge again. I had always dreamed of Vail and we ended up at Borders Lodge in Beaver Creek, just to the West. We visited before the rush in early December and got great 2 for 1 rates on a fantastic condo that far exceeded our expectations. Tastefully furnished, full kitchen, dining room, living room with large TV and gas fireplace, balcony off the living room as well as the bedroom. A 6'X6' shower and a full Jacuzzi tub!. All this for about the price of a Holiday Inn Room. In building, underground, heated parking, and elevator service to the room. My wife, a non-skiier enjoyed her Valley view while I was out bustin' my butt. ( Even though it was early the snow was unbelievable) Beaver Creek has door to door transportation to all of the area and the town of Avon at NO EXTRA CHARGE. Just give them a call from the Lodge and within 10-15 minutes they are there to pick you up in a very upscale bus. We had planned a six day stay and on the 5th day we checked with the management and ended up staying a total of 12 days. The staff was great the accomodation was fantastic, and we've already made our reservations for this years trip. By the way, we even had a better room rate than we had last year. If you go, you will enjoy it. Bill and Vera Hadley

Quiet, well maintained, free shuttle to the ski slopes - plus a chair lift out back. This is a condo with 2-4 bedrooms, ski locker, swimming pool, hot tubes. No restaurant, but a couple of excellent ones within a block's walk.

Prices are reasonable (for Beaver Creek!!) If you are looking for action, go elsewhere. If you want comfortable, convenient, quiet living, this is the place to go.

The Border's Lodge in Beaver Creek is a great place to stay. Very upscale and classy. Rooms are great. We stayed in a 2-story suite with 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths. Very nice. Very clean. It's also ski-in ski-out. Located close to everything. Went to Vail for the day, actually liked Beaver Creek better.

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!!

I stayed five nights at the Lower Borders during the men's World Cup Ski race. The room was somewhat comfortable. There was a kitchen, living area, gas fireplace, a porch, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. The "master" bedroom was large with a king size bed, desk, and large bathroom; the second bedroom included two single beds, a closet, and direct access to a second bathroom. The kitchen included a dishwasher and there were enough plates, cups, etc for a large group.

There is no restaurant, bar, vending machines, nor ice-makers in the hotel. Ice is available in the kitchen's refrigerator. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and apple cider packets are available throughout the day in the hotel lobby; the last day we learned that cookies are available in the late afternoon at the front desk. Even so, the lack of an on-site restaurant, bar, and/or vending machines was inconvenient.

The front desk staff were very nice but lacked knowledge of the hotel itself, never mind the surrounding area. For example, the night staff said there was no laundry facilities in the hotel; by happenstance we opened the closet in the second bedroom and found a washer-dryer. The TV in the main room did not work and the staff were unable to get it working nor was maintenance available until the next day. One day the beds were not made.

A shuttle to Beaver Creek village comes by every 15 minutes or so; it is about a 15 minute walk (up hill); I am not sure if there is a shuttle to the Avon, the large town located at the bottom of Beaver Creek (about 2-3 miles away).

I am not sure if there is a super market or small convenience store in Beaver Creek; if there is one, we were unable to find it. There is a large supermarket in Avon but you'll need a car to drive to it.

All in all, Borders was fine for its purpose--a place to sleep and cook one's meals. There was nothing extraordinary nor "beautiful" about the hotel, no "wow" factor. I doubt very much I will stay here again knowing there are many other options in Beaver Creek.

Upper Borders Lodge is situated right next to a ski lift. Whilst the Lodge is great it has one drawback. The rooms facing the ski lift pick a lot of noise from snow mobiles tending the slopes during the night and early hours of the morning.

There is nothing worse than being in a deep sleep and hearing the roar of a snowmobile whizzing past your window at 4am. I also found the accommodation to be on the expensive side, but that being said it's a lot cheaper than Vail.

All in all it's a wonderful place for a ski holiday but I think skiers still get better value in Europe.

Me: Avid traveler. Avid Skier. Discriminating taste. First time visiting Beaver Creek.

Although the condos were all sold out, we were able to check in early (like 4 hours early). The staff was exceptionally helpful over the duration of our stay. We did our research and, honestly, were a bit worried about the type of condo we would wind up with for a 5 night vacation. Upon entering the condo we were blown away at the level of polish, cozy but high end finishes, the level of furnishings (including cookware, plates, variety of glasses, LCD TVs, etc.), and, of course, the view.

I understand that these are individually owned condos and others may have had worse luck then we but the niceness of the suite really made our trip. You could tell that this was a place where a family spends their time and enjoys their own vacations when not renting out to others. There were a few board games and even a book or two in the TV console.

Squashing a few rumors, the location of The Borders Lodge relative to BC Village is not too far of a walk. My fiancé and I are in our early thirties as were the other couple accompanying us on this trip. Although a slight uphill grade when walking from the lodge to Village for breakfast (none onsite) or lift tickets, it was not enough to make us think twice about taking the shuttle. We did see several people waiting for the shuttle so it does come by regularly but we never used it and found the walk pleasant.

The location of The Borders Lodge for skiing purposes was fantastic. Walk down the hall to the ski lockers holding all of your gear, strap in, and cruise 20 yards to the Elkhorn Lift. Tip: Lift tickets are not checked here (ever) so you can then ride over to either Bachelor's Gulch or Beaver Creek base to purchase lift tickets. I would suggest Bachelor's Gulch for a drink at the Ritz Carlton and a quick jaunt inside instead of having to unbuckle all of your gear and take an escalator down to the purchase counter in Beaver Creek Village. At the end of the day you can either follow the Elkhorn Lift down or, if you are enjoying après ski drinks at The Chop House, you can traverse over (most of it is downhill) and wind up right by the ski lockers. Likewise, you can ski through town and end up directly across the street (i.e., across Village Road) from the Borders and simply walk up the driveway. We found any of these solutions extremely convenient.

Master Bedroom. King bed. LCD TV with DVD player and Cable. Large closet with additional blankets. Direct access to outdoor balcony. Ample storage area and coat hangers. Working lamps and large wall mirror. Perfect.

Second Bedroom. I would have posted pictures of this but was not allowed enough slots by Trip Advisor! When booking via Hotels.com I requested the 2 bedroom with a king bed and then a queen bed but, when checking in, we received the suite with a king bed and two twin beds pushed together to make a king. Upon inquiry I was informed that the suite we wound up in was finished out much nicer with better views. Additionally, just about 100% of the condos have the two twin bed set-up to increase the heads accommodated and pushing them together is very common when 2 couples are traveling. Our counterparts had no complaints on this arrangement. They had their own full bathroom which was also accessible from the main living area. The closet space here was diminished by a stackable washer/ dryer combo, which was not used but nice to have onsite. This room also housed an LCD TV with DVD player and cable.

Positives: Free coffee, tea, and water with paper to-go cups and lids available in the lobby throughout the day along with snack bars to take on the mountain with you. There is always a fire in the fireplace in the lobby to provide a warm feel. The hot tub and pool were both very warm and the walkways to them were heated so you don't have to worry about running through snow to get to the tub. There is free garage parking onsite with elevator access free wireless internet which was a tad but slow. No major complaints though. Any of the front desk agents also served as concierges and ready, willing, and able to answer all of our questions and make appropriate suggestions. The gas fireplace in the living room got a workout over our stay and was a very nice touch. Also, small details like a sock/ shoe warmer in the closet were nice.

Negatives: none of the dehumidifiers worked and, although management was happy to bring us new ones, it was unfortunate that not one out of 6 worked. Management was happy to replace a light bulb when informed one was out.

Beaver Creek Tips: If renting, head to Sports Authority down the hill for $20/ day rentals ($40/ day if demos) and usually whatever you left at home is on sale. Christy's Sports is usually overpriced. There is an in-town (BC Village) liquor store and small grocery located around the ice rink if you want to stock the condo up with necessities. Although no breakfast served onsite, there are several great spots around the base you can quickly grab something for a quick bite or a nice breakfast if you prefer.

Everything in my rating received a rating of Excellent except for the following and here's why: Value: It is very good for Beaver Creek but, as mentioned by others, Beaver Creek is expensive. I've skied Aspen and think I prefer Beaver Creek for the money.
Sleep Quality: The beds were very comfortable and there were no sound issues but this section receives a less than perfect score due to the humidifiers not working properly.
Location: Again, perfect for us but there are places closer to the Village (more expensive though) which may better suit other travelers (older or with children possibly).

Overall, none of the downfalls surpassed the upsides for us and we will surely take a long hard look at booking at the Borders again next season at our new favorite mountain in Colorado.

Happy Travels from Austin, TX!

We returned to Upper Borders for our third time in Dec 2004. As per usual it was fantastic. Clean, well maintained, and an excellent value. This property gets a lot more expensive in "prime time", but if you can go in early Dec. (up to the 20th) you will not be dissapointed. The snow has been great in each of our last 3 visits. The shuttle is very convenient. Heated underground parking!

Great location at Beaver - Can ski in/ out staring to/ from the ski room. If you want to get to the ski school/ ice rink area - 5 minutes ride from the centennial lift and a very available shuttle all day long - if you are up for an uphill walk, should not take more than 10 minutes.
Units are well maintained - especially the refreshed ones. Great staff - always helpful. Convenient garage, outdoors hot tub and heated pool are great as well - especially when it snows.
We LOVE Beaver Creek and came back to Borders 3 times - very consistent experience.
Could use some touch up for the ski room - hence not 5 stars.

We stayed in a 2-bedroom condo at Borders Lodge. After check-in, I learned that none of the condos in Beaver Creek have air conditioning, and that the second bedroom in our unit had no windows. If you are staying in the summer, be sure to request a unit with windows in both bedrooms so you can take advantage of the beautiful view and cool breezes.
I was also puzzled by the lack of closets and benches for ski gear - if you are visiting in the winter, I'm not sure where you would put your wet ski boots, coats, and other ski equipment.
Other than that, the unit was comfortable, clean and well-stocked with dishes and toiletries.

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience at The Borders Lodge. I am sure that your advice on how to handle the lack of air conditioning at most Beaver Creek properties will be valued by other travelers. Regarding the storage of ski gear, we actually have full ski lockers on the lobby level, right next to the door you exit to ride the chairlift behind our building. Coincidentally, the ski lockers will fully renovated/replaced this fall for the 2016/2017 ski season. Thanks again for sharing your experience!

It's a 5 - 10 minute walk from The Borders Lodge to Beaver Creek Village. If you don't want to walk, The Borders is also a regular stop on the Beaver Creek Village Shuttle which drops you right at the Village. Or you can call and request a pick up. It's all very convenient. The beauty of The Borders Lodge is that it is located slopeside, with skiing and lift access right off the lobby and exceptional mountain views from the condos. You get the real sense of a mountain vacation, but you are also very close to the heart of the action in the village.
