“The Osprey at Beaver Creek, formerly known as The Inn at Beaver Creek, offers 45 luxurious accommodations and two penthouse residences, sophisticated alpine-chic decor, a hotspot social scene, and posh-yet-playful services and amenities. The boutique hotel features The Osprey Lounge with a tapas-style menu, outdoor heated pool with lounge seating, a fire pit and full bar service. Guests can utilize a fitness facility with steam room and sauna, ski valet and ski storage, plus personal concierge services.”

The Osprey was highlighted for its charming, chic luxury, its après ski scene in the winter, and the variety of activities available in the summer. As well, compared to the other resorts featured the property’s affordability was called out.

“The Osprey’s sophisticated design incorporates warm colors and richly textured surfaces (including leather, birch, iron and onyx) made from locally sourced stone, indigenous metals and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified wood. Water-efficient plumbing and energy-efficient lighting fixtures further showcase the hotel’s commitment to the environment. Dallas-based architect and design firm Looney & Associates created the hotel’s new, modern look.” (http://news.ospreyatbeavercreek.rockresorts.com/section_display.cfm?section_id=689)
