Originally designed as a corporate conference facility for American Express/ Shearson Lehman, SaddleRidge at Beaver Creek now operates as an exclusive club through Vail Resorts. SaddleRidge consists of twelve residences and a conference lodge that contains a restaurant, lounge, meeting rooms, and health club with indoor/outdoor pool.
The lodge interior recalls a crafted Western heritage with plank paneling, pine flooring, and a curving grand stairway. Butternut forms the banisters of the grand stair and is also used in the restaurant ceiling truss work. A massive stone fireplace of local river rock adds an inviting character and warmth to the space.
Conference facilities include a telecommunications center and meeting room in a library setting. The health club includes an indoor/outdoor swimming pool with “swim under” glass wall, outdoor hot tubs, locker rooms, and massage treatment rooms.
SaddleRidge received the Snow Country Magazine Design Award for Best Hotel/Inn in 1992.
