Space 6,600 sq. ft.

About the property

5 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 7 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

This is a truly unique mountain property in the exclusive Bachelor Gulch area of Beaver Creek resort. At the very top of Daybreak Ridge, this stone-and-timber home sits right on the ski slope with dramatic views of the Gore Range. The ski trails of Beaver Creek and Bachelor Gulch are right out the door, and McCoy park, the Nordic ski area at the top of the mountain, is a short snowshoe or ski away.

Perfect for large groups or extended families, the house accommodates up to 20 people in multiple bunk rooms and lofts. After a day of skiing (or sledding, or ice-skating, or shopping...) gather in the great room around a wood-burning fireplace, soak in the hot tub overlooking the slopes, or watch movies or play ping pong in the rec room.

Guests have full use of the Ritz-Carlton fitness center, spa, and heated outdoor pool; Vilar Center for the Arts with a nightly line-up of world-class performances; and free Dial-A-Ride shuttle, which takes you anywhere in the resort. Concierge services are available, including full catering, restaurant reservations, in-home massage, airport transfers and more.

~ Wireless internet access

~ Garage parking for 2 vehicles & exterior parking for 2

~ Sleeping accommodations for 16-18, all with down comforters and pillows

~ BBQ Grill and private outdoor hot tub

~ Ski and Mud Rooms for ski equipment and clothing

~ Ski In / Ski Out into Bachelor Gulch and Beaver Creek

There's no better ski resort in Colorado than the impeccably groomed, uncrowded slopes of Beaver Creek, and there's no better place to base your Beaver Creek vacation than this dramatically situated mountain getaway.

About Owner

We are a family of 6 from Boulder, Colorado. Our 4 kids grew up learning to ski here. Now that they are getting older, we rent the house out when we're not using it ourselves.

Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why Owner chose Avon

We built the house as a vacation home for ourselves, a place where we could host our extended family and friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved sharing your mountain home this Christmas! We felt the warmth and joy of being in a home where family is obviously important. Skiing was a blast with the fresh powder. Snowshoeing in McCoy park on a sunny day was quite the adventure. Most of all we just enjoyed the big kitchen, great room views of the Gore Range, views of Venus from the bedroom, hot tubbing after a day in the snow and just being together. Thanks again for a Christmas memory we will never forget.

Special Location

  • 5 of 5

Magnificent home in a special location. We spent 5 days there over New Years. This house is perfect for a family reunion (as ours was) or a group of friends taking a ski vacation. The house has all the amenities that one could want, from the ping pong table to the hot tub. The ski in/ski out aspect was perfect for us. The instructor met our grandchildren right at the house each morning. very helpful caretaker/concierge and the house was in perfect condition when we arrived. For me sitting in front of the beautiful stone fireplace with a glass of wine looking out at the view as dusk approached was heaven. Several good local restaurants.

Very disappointing - only value for this price point was ski access

  • 1 of 5

Positives: very efficient response and service from the caretakers. Ample space, good ski access in a gorgeous location btw Bachelor Gulch and Beaver Creek.

Cons: everything else. The house feels distinctly like a rental property: minimal/spartan furnishings; no art/comfy touches; shabby/torn furniture, bedding, carpet; one of two main floor fireplaces didn't work at all. I have never reviewed anything online before but feel compelled to do so now. I took photos of bedding, pillows, furniture in stained/shabby shape. I also have photos of the master bedroom bathroom which had only 1 empty drawer for our use - the others were messily filled with others' toiletries, including several bottles of prescription medications (!). The two game closets were disorganized - there wasn't one single game intact. Again, I have photos - the main game closet in basement was utter clutter and junk. We have stayed in 7 other properties in Beaver Creek with similar price points and have been nothing but pleasantly surprised. We would discourage anyone from staying in this one at this price point. Further, we'd reconsider any VRBO property after wasting our money and, more important, not having the experience we expected with friends and family. We could only apologize about the accommodations to friends who'd traveled from across the country to join us. This house is equivalent to a good motel level of quality yet is priced and marketed as a luxury property. I could go on. Suffice to say, find another property at this price point.

Owner's Response: I’m sorry to hear this group was disappointed. We take all guest feedback very seriously, and have refreshed some worn bedding, carpeting and upholstery, and updated the game cabinet. Normally the house is in perfect condition for renters, as you can see from all of the other reviews below. We have changed our housekeeping service, and will be sure to continue to maintain the house in top condition, including making sure every drawer is cleaned our for guests’ use (that was a definite oversight that will not happen again). All the fireplaces, in fact, do work. In terms of the décor, the house was designed to be warm and welcoming for families and large groups, not to be overly fancy or fussy. Design is a matter of personal taste. The elegant mountain aesthetic of the house, with a mix of European antiques, custom log furniture and original art, is clearly visible in the photographs (and was designed by a highly acclaimed interior decorator). As for value, there are not many (if any) other ski-in, ski-out homes for rent at the top of Bachelor Gulch that can accommodate 3+ families. We also include concierge services in the price, which our guests find to be a great amenity. I should add that the early season snowpack was unusually sparse for this group, which understandably can affect your perception of the value of your ski vacation. In short, it is not possible to please everyone, but I would encourage renters to read the 10 glowing reviews below this one.

World-class, comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The location is spectacular - literally top of the mountain! Breath taking views in three directions. Walk out the back yard and jump on a ski run.

The architecture of the house, layout, design, and build quality, are all exceptional. The flow is extremely comfortable and wonderful for a large group, but at the same time intimate and cozy if you want to curl up and read a book in quiet. The kitchen in this house put a smile on my wife's face (what do I do she asked? ski? or stay and cook?). The bunk rooms were a smash with the kids, the mud rooms are perfect for your gear, the basement is great and hosted some fierce ping-pong games, and the large pantry allows to load up with enough food for the stay (recommended since the house is on the top of the mountain and why drive after skiing from before the lifts open!)

Beaver Creek is a wonderful, family-friendly, classy resort, and Bachelor Gulch is just an extension of the best BC has to offer and this house epotomizes all the wonderful attributes in a comfortable fashion. To that point, everyone commented just how comfortable the house was...truly a restful vacation.

We stayed a week and had two other families visit at different times, but the house could have easily held all three families at once (6 adults and 10 kids all under 8). Valet shuttle service direct to the front door to/from the village was also a convenient plus.

The pictures do not do this house justice. I was expecting the house to be nice, but my expectations were far exceeded. Truly a beautiful and functional property -- highly recommend!

Superb multi-family house!

  • 5 of 5

We are an extended family (grandparents plus 3 families with 8 kids total and 8 adults) and we stayed for a week. This house had plenty of room for all. Everything was clean and well maintained. We loved that the owner did not lock away all personal items; for instance, the pantry had all kinds of spices and cooking basics available, and the basement had lots of snowshoes. We skied and snowshoed, hot-tubbed and relaxed. The free shuttle always came within about 10-15 minutes of a phone call and could not have been an easier way to get down the mountain to either bachelors gulch or beaver creek village. Beautiful views too!!

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a 5 night stay at this property. We had 6 adults and 3 small children. It was a great week and every moment in the home was enjoyable. There are plenty of bedrooms and the home is set up to sleep even more with pullout couches. The bunk rooms were a hit with the kids. I would guess you could sleep at least 20+ if you wanted to.

The home sits at the top of Bachelor Gulch. At first we thought that may be a hindrance as there is nothing nearby. Once we realized you just pick up the phone and call the complimentary shuttle that concern faded. The home is ski-in / ski-out and we really appreciated it. The hot tub is right next to the ski-in area and was a hit.

I would highly recommend this home for its size, fine amenities and feel, and ski-to location. It makes for a stress free vacation that can’t be beat.
