Family-focused luxury lodge with creative dining options and a huge heated outdoor pool
Part grand American lodge, part iconic European ski village, the hotel is a stately structure that combines stonework with exposed timbers and steep rooflines. Interiors, designed by Brayton Hughes, are the epitome of rustic elegance. Masculine touches of leather, stone, ironwork and stained wood mix with stylish floral carpets and saturated colors that reflect the mountain landscape. Look for hints of skis in the architectural details.
Bed and Bath
The generous (575-square-foot) rooms stick to classic neutrals to place the focus on the views. Soft colors mix with hickory woodwork and leather chairs, ottomans and headboards. All the of 120 rooms come equipped with stone fireplaces and terraces, distinguished mainly by the views, which vary from mountain to village to garden. The bathrooms pamper with deep soaking tubs, L’Occitane products and robes and slippers.
The hotel offers a to-do list of interesting activities that range from meat smoking classes to barrel-aged cocktail making. At the spa, guests linger fireside or outdoors in the relaxation garden before and after treatments such as the altitude adjustment massage that helps guests acclimate to the 8,150-foot elevation. Fireside is a laid-back lounge for après ski with live music and cocktails like the Angry Ginger with peat-smoked bourbon. At Flame you can choose a house specialty rub for your dry aged Bison rib eye and pair it with must-try duck fat fries.
In the Area
Vail Village is the gateway to the largest ski mountain in the United States and a system of trails for summer and winter mountain pursuits. Ride the Eagle Bahn gondola to Adventure Ridge to hike classic trails like Berry Picker. After a snowstorm, skiers and riders flock to Vail’s Back Bowls, a seven-mile-wide swath of wide-open, mostly un-groomed terrain. In the village, ice skating at Solaris Plaza or bowling at the swanky Bol Vail can be followed by dinner at Matsuisha or Sweet Basil.
