    Earlier this week we attended the wedding of some friends in Avon, Colorado, home of Beaver Creek, arguably the top-rated ski resort in Colorado. The wedding itself was at the chapel on the resort, which was absolutely lovely, while the reception was over in Gypsum. Despite the fact that people fly in from around the world to get married here, this was not a destination wedding -- both the bride and groom were more-or-less locals, as were most of the guests. Given that Avon is a couple hour drive for us, we decided to make a little getaway of it and spend the night. That seemed to make the most sense, especially since we'd have the kiddos along. It didn't hurt that it's the off-season for lodging in the Vail Valley, so there were some incredible deals to be had. In fact, the deals were so good that it actually made deciding where to stay challenging since there were so many enticing options. Although I really wanted to try the Park Hyatt over in Vail, we decided to stay in Avon where there are three Starwood Preferred Guest properties to choose from. We went with the Lakeside Terrace Villas which are a vacation ownership property adjacent to the Sheraton Mountain Vista. All of the Lakeside Villas are monstrous two-bedroom 1,400 sq feet units, complete with a full kitchen and dining area. This turned out to be perfect given that we had decided to bring along our part-time nanny and her husband -- both of whom are personal friends -- to watch the kids while we attended the reception. The added space allowed us all to stay in the same unit, which was ideal. The post Review: SPG Lakeside Terrace Villas, Beaver Creek, Colorado appeared first on One Mile at a Time.
