The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch (Beaver Creek, CO)

Ritz-Carlton Bachelor GulchIt has been said that The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch is the most dog-friendly Ritz-Carlton in the world, receiving a dog bowl, dog bed, dog bone, and "Pet in Room" sign for the duration of the guest's stay. Stay at the hotel and meet "Bachelor" - the resident yellow Labrador Retriever and star of the resort's signature Loan-a-Lab hiking program. Bachelor is available daily for hikes and snow shoeing with guests on the Loan-a-Lab trail. Hugely popular with guests and families, he gets booked months in advance during the peak seasons! The Loan-a-Lab program is complimentary to hotel guests and can be reserved in advance through the hotel's concierge desk. Bachelor can be reserved for a walk with guests daily Monday through Friday and on select weekends for a 30-minute or one hour hike or snow shoe out the backdoors of The Ritz-Carlton on two designated trails. Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. You may also meet Bachelor in the lobby daily between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m - or when not on loan, Bachelor can be found wandering around the resort grounds or most-likely lounging in the Great Room by the fireplace on his overstuffed Ritz-Carlton dog bed, known as The Bachelor Pad. Some dog's life!
