Cons

  • Expansive resort can be difficult to maneuver

Bottom Line

Beaver Run Resort & Conference Center is an expansive year-round resort featuring 515 rooms and a picturesque slope-side setting at Breckenridge's Peak 9. Compared to other resorts in the same pearl class, Beaver Run offers a slew of amenities -- a heated all-season indoor/outdoor pool, multiple restaurants and hot tubs, a spa, a convention center, outdoor tennis courts -- though its ski-in/ski-out access to Peak 9 is a main draw. Getting to Main Street, Breckenridge's downtown area, from the hotel is a bit of a hike, though. For a more luxurious ski-resort experience, try One Ski Hill Place, a RockResort on Peak 8.

Scene

A massive condo-style, slope-side ski resort

The lobby of this massive, condo-style ski resort is furnished in standard mountain-lodge décor, with stone accents (like the fireplace) Center

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, though assorted pictures of Colorado wildlife or skiing are to be expected. Although Beaver Run's 1970s origins are apparent, the resort blends seamlessly with its mountainside surroundings. 

During the winter, the ski-in/ski-out access is a definite perk, as is the slope-facing apres-ski bar, Coppertop Bar and Cafe, a favorite among area skiers. With its multiple restaurants, pools, and hot tubs; arcade; and apartment-style rooms with kitchens, Beaver Run is geared primarily towards families, though its conference complex also makes it ideal for business groups and travelers. 

Location

At the base of Peak 9 within walking distance to Main Street, Breckenridge's main dining and shopping area 

Map of Beaver Run Resort & Conference Center

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 (longer in the snow) -- a hike that can be eliminated thanks to the resort's free shuttle, which is especially helpful during the snowy winter months.

  • Two-minute walk to the Peak 9 ski lift (Beaver Run is massive, though, so this can take longer from certain areas)
  • 20-minute walk, or four-minute drive, to Stephen C. West Ice Arena, for ice skating
  • Four-minute drive to Breckenridge Welcome Center
  • Five-minute drive to BreckConnect Gondola
  • Two-hour drive to Denver International Airport

Rooms

Various types of rooms with lodge-like decor, most with kitchens

The One-Bedroom Suite includes a separate kitchen and living space

Decor varies slightly throughout Beaver Run Resort's 515 rooms, studios, and suites (as a result of their individual ownership), but it generally evokes the same cozy mountain-lodge vibe as the hotel's common areas. Units range is size from standard Hotel Rooms -- with two queen or double beds, mini-fridges, and microwaves -- to Four-Bedroom Executive Suites with large living rooms and kitchens and penthouse views. All rooms have common hotel staples, like fresh towels, bathroom toiletries, and daily housekeeping, plus coffeemakers and humidifiers (necessary, considering the altitude). Standard Hotel Rooms are the only units without kitchenettes or kitchens; all studios and suites have either either one or the other. Some rooms are dog-friendly, and free wood is delivered to rooms with wood-burning fireplaces. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

Features

From the spa to the ski school, Beaver Run has all the bases covered

The indoor-outdoor main pool is a popular feature

Compared with other resorts of its size and price point, there's a slew of amenities for both the ski season and the rest of the year. The resort's extensive amenities include an on-site ski school, lift ticket purchase, and ski/snowboard rental (it is a short walk to the Peak 9 ski lift). Beaver Run's outdoor tennis courts are open seasonally, but its two outdoor pools are open and heated year round, as are its six outdoor hot tubs. The indoor/outdoor pool is especially popular, and all of the hot tubs have mountain views. The Spa at Beaver Run is a full-service facility with outdoor soaking tubs and a saltwater pool in a beautiful courtyard with lounge chairs and heated sidewalks. 

The small fitness center serves basic cardio and weight-lifting needs, and the large arcade room has games, air hockey, vending machines, and a nine-hole mini-golf course. More than 40,000 square feet of meeting spaces serve up to 1,000 guests, and there is also a small business center with two computers. A free shuttle provides service throughout town during ski season. Dogs under 50 pounds allowed, and on-property dog sitters available for an hourly fee. Wi-Fi is free throughout the resort.

Food

An upscale steak house, a martini and sports bar, a deli and grocery market; and a slope-side bar open in the winter

Spencer’s Steaks and Spirits serves fine fare in an upscale space

Beaver Run's main restaurant is Spencer’s Steaks and Spirits, an upscale dining option offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Spencer's bar and lounge features menu of hot drinks, local beers and liquors, and classic cocktails. Base 9 Bar, open year round, has nightly happy hours and a martini list, craft regional beers on tap, and wine by the glass. Its dinner menu consists of salads, soups, and burgers.

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. Located at the base of Peak 9, the Coppertop Bar and Cafe opens in the winter. The slope-side apres-ski bar serves breakfast, lunch, and drinks.
