CRESTA MOUNTAIN LODGE
- SQM 8,701
Here within the forested hillside of Arrowhead, nestled into a grove of quaking Aspens, sits a home that will have you dreaming of schussing amongst the flakes just outside your door. As you surround yourself in warm wood, unobstructed alpine views, and all the luxuries of an extraordinary mountainside palace, let Cresta Mountain Lodge transport you away from the stresses of daily life and into full relaxation mode. The home is only 20 yards from the slope, though access may depend on seasonal snowfall.
Enter into the palatial Great Room and prepare to be wowed immediately by the cathedral ceilings and tasteful decor. An assortment of seating keeps comfort top of mind in this space. Linger at the dining table, which seats up to 10 guests, or continue on to the exquisitely-equipped gourmet kitchen. Everything you could dream of in a kitchen has been considered here, including additional seating at the breakfast table for up to 6. Recruit the kids to help bake a pie in one of the two Viking ovens, then enjoy a slice at the island bar set for 4 as you take time to appreciate the custom cabinetry and exposed beams overhead.
The family room, also on the main level, offers mountain views from one side, and access to the outdoors on the other. In the middle is a large flat-screen tv and gas fireplace to accent the plush couches and chairs under the sky-high ceilings. A powder room on this level completes the picture of effortless splendor.
Back inside, the first of 7 bedrooms can be found just down the hall from the Great Room. This Master Suite is a perfect landing spot after a day filled with outdoor adventure, with its spacious King bed and oversized ensuite featuring a stand-alone steam shower and separate soaking tub.
Upstairs, a second Master Suite receives an abundance of natural light through the glass doors out to a private balcony and holds a flat screen tv and King bed. The attached ensuite holds an impressively-detailed standalone steam shower and double vanity.
On the lower level of the home, 4 more bedrooms offer either a King or Queen bed and tastefully-appointed ensuite. The icing on the cake is the bunk room, large enough to sleep 8 on the built-in full-over-full and twin-over-twin bunks with additional trundles. The large flat screen tv provides a great distraction for the littlest group members, while an additional bunk nook just outside offers a bit more privacy and quiet for 2 more guests.
The lower level living room hosts a large tv nestled betwixt a cozy gas fireplace and pool table, ready to entertain your whole group for hours on end. There’s a bar with kitchenette as well, so no one will need to even leave the room for a snack. The fitness room on this level offers an opportunity to warm up before the first run of the day, while a powder room adjacent awaits as a freshening up point.
Enjoy the peace of this quieter corner of Beaver Creek Mountain, but keep in mind that Arrowhead’s uncrowded terrain is just feet from your door. On the lower level deck, check each morning for small footprints in the snow left by wildlife visitors passing by in the night, or enjoy your coffee on a warm summer day in one of the chairs by your bubbling private hot tub.
Ski-in/out access onto a blue run starts right off your porch, and a shuttle-on-demand service awaits to whisk you away to Edwards for a shopping excursion or festive night out. You may be tempted to spend all of your time exploring the 8,700 wondrous square feet of Cresta Mountain Lodge, but when the peaks outside sing to you, remember that you’re only a skip away from answering the call.
