Making time for a getaway with your spouse is important, but it’s easy fall into the pattern of let’s go in a few months when we’re not so busy…especially when you’re a parent.
So when I looked at my husband recently and realized that we hadn’t had a break from the kids in a long time, I turned to the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch to help me create the perfect weekend getaway.
The hotel is only a two-hour drive from Denver, our home base, and Beaver Creek is among the best ski resort towns in the Rocky Mountains. Forbes recently described it as “the most luxurious of all American ski resorts.” We could hardly wait.
Although the property is just over a decade old, Ritz-Carlton completed a full renovation eighteen months ago. The massive structure has 40 residential units, 192 regular rooms, and two three-bedroom penthouses. There are several restaurants on site, each with a unique offering. The resort has a ranger who guides daily snowshoe hikes, a complimentary shuttle to the town of Beaver Creek, a complimentary 45-minute photo shoot, a state-of-the-art fitness center, an award-winning spa, and a fire pit with s’mores and cocktails après ski. And that’s just a small sampling of the amenities!
Through my relationship with Brownell , my clients will get Ritz-Carlton Stars Amenities . Some of those amenities include an upgrade upon arrival (if available), full breakfast for up to two guests daily in a restaurant, $100 USD resort credit to use during your stay, and early check in or late check out (if available).
Why We Loved It:

Where to Eat:
Spring and summer in the mountains are actually my favorite time to be there. Think wildflowers, clear Colorado mountain skies, and all the fresh air you can breathe.
Less Spendy Alternative to the Ritz-Carlton:
Check out the Westin Riverfront Beaver Creek . This resort is in Avon with a gondola lift to Bachelor Gulch. It was named top resort in the U.S. by Conde Nast Traveler in 2011, just three years after it opened in 2008.
