The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch

A luxe Colorado mountain resort
Rugged meets refined at this resort, located at the base of the mountain at Beaver Creek. From the 10-gallon-hat-clad doorman who greets you to the rustic great room, this resort captures the spirit of the Old West while incorporating polished style.

The rooms and suites are comfortable and stylish, with leather chairs, dark wood furniture and wood-beamed ceilings. Iron chandeliers and twig furnishings adorn the public spaces.

This family-friendly resort offers an abundance of activities, including fly fishing, a horseshoe pit, two children's play areas, an outdoor pool, golf and of course, skiing.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • While this Ritz-Carlton hotel offers plenty of luxurious touches, the real value at Bachelor Gulch is the easy ski in/ski out access to more than 1,600 acres of world-class terrain on Beaver Creek Mountain.
  • Inspired by the surrounding national forest, Bachelor Gulch brings nature indoors with its timber-and-stone interior, log balconies, rustic colors and oversized, handcrafted furniture.
  • Tucked away between ski towns Beaver Creek and Arrowhead, this Recommended hotel is in a unique spot to offer village-to-village access.
  • For the ideal après-ski, relax by the three-story stone, wood-burning fireplace in the Great Room with one of the luxury hotel’s signature cocktails, or unwind with a soothing hot stone massage at the spa.
  • Several world-class Vail Valley golf courses are situated around our conveniently located hotel, which offers one of the best Beaver Creek golf packages during warmer months.
