The Ritz Carlton, Bachelor Gulch located in the Colorado Rockies is considered to be one of the most pet-friendly resorts in the country. On premise, their resident yellow Labrador retriever, Bachelor is available for snow shoe hikes and walks (on a daily limited schedule) throughout the winter season thanks to their exclusive Loan-a-Lab program. This complimentary service is wildly popular with families and children. “It’s a great way for the family to bond and have fun,” said Steven Holt, Director of Public Relations.
In addition to the Loan-a-Lab program, they also offer a V.I.P. Program (Very Important Pooch). The V.I.P. will receive a set of amenities upon arrival from Bachelor himself, which includes a welcome card, a custom-made gold name tag, a plush dog bed, and homemade dog biscuits at turndown. “Our buildings are inspired by the grand lodges in the turn of the century,” said Holt. The Ritz Carlton, Bachelor Gulch is an exquisite North American luxury resort which captures the beauty of the surrounding national forest. This is one winter hot spot where any pet and pet owner would love to stay!
Prices range from $265 to $625 per night. Pet fees: $125 per stay, no matter how many pets you bring!
