BEAVER CREEK, CO (August 8, 2013) — Colorado-based Timbers Resorts, one of the largest independent developers and operators of private boutique resorts and residence clubs, will replace the Ritz-Carlton Management Company as the manager and operator of the former Ritz-Carlton Club – Bachelor Gulch, effective November 1, 2013. Situated in Colorado’s Vail Valley slopeside on Beaver Creek Mountain within the acclaimed Bachelor Gulch community, the iconic mountainside residence club will be renamed and added as the thirteenth property to the Timbers Collection.
“As we continue to expand our portfolio, we couldn’t be more pleased to procure such a special and timeless property,” said David Burden, CEO & Founder of Timbers Resorts. “We look forward to working closely with the HOA and its board to provide Owners with the high-quality culture, service and hospitality that Timbers Resorts has become known for.”
“As our Club has been fully sold out and Member controlled for years, the end of the existing management contract was a perfect opportunity to reaffirm our unique Club strictly as a Private Residence Club. After an extensive and exhaustive RFP process, followed by an overwhelming favorable vote for the change by our Members, we felt hands down that Timbers Resorts was the right fit for our Owners moving forward to return our club to its original vision,” said Michael Mullenix, President of the RCC-BG Condominium Association.
Contingent on approval from the board, Timbers Resorts will embark on an extensive remodeling of the property in 2014. The ski and mountain adventure services located at the base of Bachelor Gulch and powered by Venture Sports will continue offering exceptional experiences to Owners and guests under management by Timbers Resorts.
Adorned with quintessential western design elements juxtaposed with modern luxuries, the residence club captures the essence of its surroundings by integrating various earth tones and rock-lined walls, reminiscent of the nearby mountains. The club provides 54 two and three-bedroom residences, top of the line amenities along with breathtaking panoramic views of the majestic Rocky Mountains and the utmost in luxury and comfort. The Timbers Residence Club at Bachelor Gulch embraces the rustic elegance of ‘parkitecture,’ a design concept inspired by rich mountain heritage, by incorporating log balconies, hand crafted furniture as well as leather and copper accents.
Current Owners will receive membership in the Timbers Collection and the opportunity to experience an array of exquisite properties in the Timbers Reciprocity Program including The Timbers Club in Snowmass, Colo.; The Residences at Esperanza in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; The Rocks Club in Scottsdale, Arizona; Castello di Casole in Tuscany, Italy; The Preserve at Botany Bay on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands; One Steamboat Place in Steamboat Springs, Colorado; The Orchard at The Carneros Inn in Napa, California; The Villas at Rancho Valencia in Rancho Santa Fe, California; Doonbeg in County Clare, Ireland; Residences at The Sebastian in Vail, Colorado; Dancing Bear Aspen in Aspen, Colorado; and Mayacama Residences in Sonoma, California.
