At a Glance

Superbly located literally a few steps from the Strawberry Park lift and across the street from the village, the Osprey is a great choice for those who value a hip but low-key lounge scene instead of grand spaces.

Indagare Loves

  • Ideal slopeside location
  • Alcoves with work-friendly desks in some deluxe rooms
  • Contemporary Nordic decor and chic crowd


The transformation of the old Beaver Creek Lodge into the sleek Osprey has been ongoing for a few years, and now it’s pretty much complete. The small reception area leads on to a chic bar/lounge area and a wood and stone-lined living room where, come morning, guests feel comfortable noshing on granola parfaits and reading the news on their iPads. The contemporary look carries through to the forty-five guest rooms; they’re far more Nordic cool than Alpine rustic. Deluxe rooms have vaulted ceilings in addition to fireplaces, tall platform beds, walk-in closets, and warm, butter-colored walls that glow enticingly at night. A pair of large, ultra-contemporary two-bedroom condos are also available here, so close to the chairlift you could hand a passing skier a hot chocolate. Food service consists of breakfast, lunch, and après ski tapas in the Osprey Lounge, all beautifully turned out by executive chef David Sanchez; a dinner restaurant with a full menu opened in the 2013 winter season upstairs.

Who Should Stay

Those with boutique sensibilities. If you crave Alpine tradition, try the Chateau.
