Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Expansive resort can be difficult to maneuver
  • An uphill walk to Main Street is treacherous in the snow
  • The fitness center is small

Bottom Line

This large 525-room resort offers a slew of amenities compared to other resorts in the same pearl class. The direct ski-in/ski-out access to Peak 9 is a main draw, and the heated indoor/outdoor pool is open year-round. The resort, though, is a bit of a hike to Main Street, Breckenridge's downtown area.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

An expansive year-round resort featuring 525 rooms and a picturesque slope-side setting at Breckenridge's Peak 9

Embracing its proximity to the ski slopes, the Beaver Run Resort decorates its common areas, bars and eateries in standard mountain-lodge decor -- think exposed-wood beams, stone accents (such as the large stone fireplace in the lobby or the stone-clad hallways), and Arts & Crafts-style furnishings.

The rooms follow suit. Individually owned, they each have a unique decor fitting within the lodge theme -- the only commonality among them being the fresh white bed linens and assorted pictures of Colorado wildlife or skiing.

Outside, the resort blends seamlessly with its mountainside surroundings, though it does appear a bit dated in style. Sure to never go out of style, though, are the stunning mountain views and the lush grounds. During the winter, the ski-in/ski-out access is a definite perk -- especially for anyone looking to enjoy BBQ, drinks and some live music at the slope-facing Coppertop Cafe and Bar, a favorite among area skiers.

 Location

At the base of Peak 9 within walking distance to Main Street, Breckenridge's main dining and shopping area -- though it's a 15-minute walk (longer n the snow)

Beaver Run Resort is situated right at the base of Peak 9, with a direct lift to the slopes and ski-in/ski-out amenities. Nearby, Breckenridge’s bustling downtown area, located along Main Street, is host to restaurants, bars, entertainment and everything else you'd expect in a cozy ski town. It is a 15-minute walk to get there though -- a hike that can be eliminated thanks to the resort's free shuttle, which is especially helpful during the snowy winter months.

  • 2-hour drive to Denver International Airport
  • 2-minute walk to the Peak 9 ski lift
  • 15-minute walk to the closest brewery, Breckenridge Brewery
  • 4-minute drive to the Stephen C. West Ice Arena, for ice skating
  • 3-minute drive to the Breck-Connect Gondola
  • 3-minute drive to the Breckenridge Welcome Center
  • 4-minute drive to City Market, for groceries and other needs

 Rooms

Individually decorated rooms -- all 525 of them -- with standard hotel amenities and cozy lodge-like flare

Ranging in size from a standard "hotel room" up to the six-room Top of the Run Suite, there's an excellent range of sizes and price options.

All the rooms have common hotel staples, like fresh towels, bathroom toiletries and daily maid service, but as a result of individual ownership every room is different. All suites and the Deluxe Studio have either a full kitchen or kitchenette.

  • Coffeemakers serving gourmet coffee
  • Paid Wi-Fi access
  • Humidifiers
  • Specific rooms are dog-friendly.
  • Free wood delivery for rooms with wood-burning fireplaces
  • Standard rooms are the only rooms without a kitchen or kitchenette.

 Features

Extensive amenities including ski school, a spa, tennis courts, and a popular indoor/outdoor pool and seven Jacuzzis

  • True ski-in/ski-out, and short walk to the Peak 9 ski lift
  • Two outdoor year-round heated pools -- one is an indoor/outdoor pool

 Food

Ecclectic offerings for all your meal needs, including an upscale restaurant; martini and sports bar; a deli and grocery market; and a slope-side bar open in the winter featuring drinks and BBQ

Spencer’s is an upscale dining option, offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, specializing in steaks and buffets for every meal, including an all-you-can-eat prime rib option.

The on-site lounge, Base Nine, is open year round with a martini list and billiards table.

Open only in the winter, the Coppertop Bar & Cafe is the slope-side après ski bar, with drinks and BBQ.

Skywalk Market offers deli food options and coffee-shop fare, and serves Starbucks Coffee. The market also has grab-n-go food items and gift shop items, and is a good spot to stock up.

 Bottom Line

This large 525-room resort offers a slew of amenities compared to other resorts in the same pearl class. The direct ski-in/ski-out access to Peak 9 is a main draw, and the heated indoor/outdoor pool is open year-round. The resort, though, is a bit of a hike to Main Street, Breckenridge's downtown area.
