The dazzling dining scene in Vail and Beaver Creek knows few equals and there are superb offerings for every taste and mood. Many of the most popular venues can be reached on skis in winter or a short hike in summer, and of course our convenient shuttle is also available. But among the most compelling are the many enthralling choices close to home in Bachelor Gulch.
The perfect temperature for a sparkling high mountain swimming pool is 82°. It’s also the perfect place to enjoy light fare on a summer afternoon lounging in a chaise or playing with the kids. The menu is an appetizing offering of all your favorites, from healthy salads to hearty burgers; it’s fun, casual and satisfying.
Start with one of the world’s most famous chefs, Wolfgang Puck. Add legendary designer Tony Chi and then add an always-colorful clientele and you have what many believe to be the region’s most exciting dining experience. Puck fans will recognize menu classics such as agnolotti with seasonal fillings (perhaps pumpkin and Mascarpone in sage butter) alongside pan-roasted venison and other ski country favorites. The award-winning AAA Four-Diamond restaurant is hip and sophisticated with cowhide chairs and an etched silver bar top, clear glass display towers and lots of cozy spaces that are the ideal place to grab an après-ski cocktail. Open breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Buffalos features seasonal dishes from regional farms and Colorado favorites fashioned from organic poultry, wild seafood and premium beef including, of course, Bison. The open kitchen is an expression of the entire philosophy – food with bold and honest flavors focusing on simple, pure ingredients. There’s a great selection of local craft beer on draught and by the bottle. Throughout the season, features include lively beer pairings, live entertainment, afternoon and evening après-ski cocktails and shared plates. Open breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Daniel’s Bar on the terrace offers breathtaking views of the surrounding National Forest and beautiful Colorado sunsets. Serving lunch and dinner, Daniel’s Bar features light fare and grilled Colorado specialties.
Zach’s Cabin is an iconic and carefully preserved authentic Colorado cabin lit at night by only candles and lanterns – an incredible setting for the nightly Raclette dinner. The Raclette dinner is a celebratory experience. Melted on personal grills on a long farmhouse table, savory Swiss cheese is served with a selection of hearty local beef. Fine wines complement a feast finished with a rich chocolate fondue dessert. Owners at Timbers Bachelor Gulch have the rare privilege to book lunch reservations at Zach's.
Spacious dining areas, gourmet kitchens and a BBQ patio make staying in just as enjoyable as going out. Your concierge is happy to stock your pantry with everything you need for a perfect family dinner, arrange a private chef for a dinner party, or provide S’mores kits to enjoy on our terrace.
