When most of us think about Beaver Creek and the Vail environs in Colorado, we think about skiing in the winter, right? But with endless trails, a bustling restaurant and shopping scene, gorgeous waves of wildflowers, stunning surprises from nature around every corner and activities and events galore in the summer, peak season is now year-round.
If you’d like to be in the middle of all of the action, Beaver Creek Lodge is the absolute ideal place to stay. Another Kessler property serviced by Marriott Autograph Collection (yes - you can use your points here!), it has all the signature elements of other Kessler properties such as the fusion of curated art, renowned food, signature cocktails and soul-filling music along with the million-dollar views of the 11,400 feet behemoth, Beaver Creek Summit.
The gorgeously outfitted rooms all have sitting areas and are perfect for both long and short stays. Be sure to check out the lobby's thought-provoking art installation, “Climbers,” as well as the indoor/outdoor pool flanked by the babbling brook and river stone that run through Beaver Creek Village.
During the day, be sure to take one of the jeep excursions to the top of the summit where you might just catch a glimpse of snow-peaked mountains, even in the warmer months. The gondola runs year-round and the lodge near the top is the perfect spot to bring a picnic or grab lunch to take in the expansive views. No matter what makes you smile - hiking, horseback riding, golfing, mountain biking, fishing, shopping - there are opportunities to carry you to the next level of vacationing.
At night, head into the square to catch the outdoor community spirit, with screen-on-the-green movies, corn hole competitions, dance parties, and outdoor concerts.
Indoors and on patios throughout Beaver Creek, inventive food is served up. If fresh-caught whole fish or sushi excites you, you’ll be hooked by Hooke. Be sure to ask to see the fresh selection table side. Italian restaurant, Toscanini also gives all the foodie feels. Remember to make reservations in advance, because it is a local favorite.
No matter the occasion - family fun, romantic jaunt, or friends getaway - look to Beaver Creek and Vail during the spring and summer seasons where nature's glory is on display.
