With its elegantly angled blue-slate roof, this sprawling property is one of the area's largest accommodations. Wisps of smoke from the fireplaces in many rooms rise above, giving the place a homey feel perfect for families. There are plenty of choices for rooms (all individually decorated in basic mountain ensembles), including one- to five-bedroom condominiums catering to families, many with balconies that let you gaze over the tops of the trees. The location is perfect—the
ski-in ski-out hotel is a short walk from the main plaza at Beaver Creek. If you feel like staying in, you can build your own burger at the appealingly low-key restaurant, the Black Diamond Bistro.
