“The Big Green Egg of Beaver Creek”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Yes, I am a fan of Dr. Seuss but this review has nothing to do with the famous author. While this is a review about Beaver Creek Lodge (and Resort), I will come back to that in a moment. If you are into grilling, serious grilling, then you need a Big Green Egg (www.biggreenegg.com). The company sponsored this year's "Blues, Brews and BBQ Festival" held near BC Lodge and held a competition whereby 15 teams grilled up some of the most amazing chicken dishes (all contestants were given the same ingredients and had to cook them all on a BGE). The meats were all so juicy and tender, the veggies were crispy and delightfully smoked. Other award-winning chefs dished up bacon-wrapped, asparagus-stuffed pork chops. Highly recommended! And, no, I am not on their payroll...

Now, for what you really came to read. This the 8th or 9th year that my wife and I have stayed at BCL. It feels like a second home to us and we will be back again. The Lodge is cozy and intimate. If you need or want swank, posh and ritzy, this may not be the best place for you. BCL has all of this but on a personal level rather than an in-your-face affront to your senses. We have always stayed in a creek-side room as we enjoy the roar of the creek flowing by; the bed is very comfortable with a pillow-top mattress; the bathroom is roomy (I believe there are ADA rooms available); the gas log fireplace adds ambiance and there is a small kitchenette with a small fridge and microwave, enough for a quick breakfast or lunch. There is a nice indoor/outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna and workout room. Finally, there is a restaurant (Rocks) in the hotel for those rainy nights when you don't want to go out, plus a few gift shops. The only reason I give BCL a 4-star rating instead of 5-stars is that I have had some minor problems which maintenance or housekeeping quickly resolved but the property would be better served with more proactive maintenance and an eye to detail.

The best time of the year to go depends on what you want to do. If you want to do adventurous, outdoor activities, then May-July will be great as the nearby rivers are raging with the melting snow, perfect for white-water rafting. The aspens were just coming into full bloom while we there over Memorial Day weekend. There are also ATV rides, jeep tours, horseback rides, hiking trails and zip lining in the summer and, of course, skiing, horse-drawn sleds, and snowmobiles in the winter (we have yet to stay in the winter months as the rates rise very dramatically during this peak season.) The best time to watch leaves change is around mid-September to the end of the month, perhaps early October. Any time outside of the Memorial Day-to-Labor Day window is off-season with some restaurants and shops in the Resort village closed for the shoulder season, but if you want to be alone or with your loved one, this is a great time to come.

One more place to mention is the Northside Kitchen, located just north of I-70 on exit 167 in Avon. They place has some of the best food at the best prices in the area. The bake their own pastries in the morning and serve seafood pot pie, heavenly salmon that is cooked perfectly (for us, at least) and some of the best filets anywhere.

Room Tip: If you need a room with a view, get one on the Valley side. If you want the sounds of the creek rush...

What a beautiful hotel, in a beautiful setting! Rooms were clean, quiet, and spacious. Hotel staff was always ready to help. We cooked s'mores on the patio. Great shops and restaurants in walking distance. What more could you ask for!

Room Tip: You can't make a bad choice

I stayed at Beaver Creek Lodge two weeks ago. Since it was the off-season, it was very quiet and quite pleasant. We stayed in a room overlooking the creek however it also overlooked wall-to-wall hotels so I would recommend staying in a room with the Valley view. The front desk and concierge service was outstanding. Everyone made us feel welcome and were very helpful with suggestions for breakfast and lunch. The hotel is spotless and the King suite was lovely with a separate living room with TV, fireplace, small refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, etc. The bedroom was spacious and the bathroom was very modern and clean. I recommend staying at this fine establishment.

Room Tip: I recommend the King suite with a Valley view. Bring your own pillow, if possible. The pillows are f...

My wife and I have stayed at Beaver Creek Lodge for the past three years in October (shoulder season). The staff has always been very accommodating and hospitable. The hotel is very well kept and during this time of year, not crowded at all. If you are not into skiing but like the fall, I reccommend staying at the Beaver Creek Lodge.

Room Tip: We prefer the brook side rooms for a little more atmosphere.

My husband and I visited Beaver Creek for the first time over Memorial Day weekend during the Blues, Brews and BBQ Festival. The Lodge staff was very nice and helpful. The restaurant was very yummy and we were pleasantly surprised by the size/layout of the room. It was also a perfect location for attending the festival. We had a great time and are already planning a trip back!

No place better than the beaver creek lodge for a family trip! We are regulars there now, so I want to make a couple hopefully helpful comments. For the folks who complained about carrying their skis back to the Lodge from the slopes (which isn't very far) there actually is ski in access via the skiers bridge. Just ask the staff. And for the woman who complained about the gate attendant in "what a disappointment" you should know that is not related to the lodge and not really relevant in a review.

As to our last trip, the late season snow was awesome, as usual. Just don't go up too early or it could be icy in spots. Generally speaking they have the best grooming around so it is good any time. Our kids loved the pool too, it is better than most up there. They will bring room service drinks to the hot tub but in a perfect world they would have a phone right there. Either way, we had a blast, again. We will be back next ski season.

Stayed April 2014

My family had a great experience at Beaver Creek lodge over spring break. The staff was friendly, attentive and helpful. The resort was beautiful and our suite was really nice and comfortable. Loved having the kitchenette and the fireplace. Christi ski rental on site and a restaurant was on site as well. Only complaint is to have to carry skis from slopes back to Christi sports. Highly recommend Beaver Creek Lodge!

Room Tip: Higher floors are more quiet as it's an open setup.
