Wyndham Vacation Rentals Congratulates The Inn at Aspen Property Owners on Major Renovation

Aspen, Colorado property completes significant upgrades and helps revive the Buttermilk Mountain base

Wyndham Vacation Rentals, the world’s largest professional manager of vacation rentals and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN), congratulates The Inn at Aspen on a multi-million dollar renovation funded by the property’s homeowners.  The Inn at Aspen, with units professionally managed by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, began common area renovations in April 2014 to bring a fresh appearance and better guest experience to the ski-in/ski-out property at the base of Buttermilk Mountain.  The renovation is slated to be completed in November for the 2014-2015 ski season.    

“We congratulate The Inn at Aspen’s dedicated homeowners, who worked hard to make this renovation happen,” said Thomas Ernst, executive general manager, Aspen, Breckenridge & Keystone, Wyndham Vacation Rentals.  “This season, guests can expect enhanced amenities and a new look that celebrates the Inn’s amazing views of Buttermilk Mountain.”


The Inn undertook a grand renovation of the lobby and the adjacent bar and onsite restaurant to provide guests with a warm and welcoming gathering place. The enhancements include an expanded ceiling and new floor-to-ceiling windows that offer unobstructed mountain views. The lobby was also updated to include a four-sided fireplace, wood design elements, and leather seating for a comfortable après ski spot. In addition to housing the front desk, concierge and car rental counter, the renovated lobby also features a new business center and a grand entryway leading to a stone patio with a gas fire pit and an adjacent outdoor pavilion for dining and events.

These common area enhancements follow room renovations completed in 2013, which included brand new bathrooms, fresh décor, new carpeting and drapes, updated furnishings and select new appliances for most of the rooms.

“We’re extremely excited to debut The Inn at Aspen’s transformed guest experience this ski season,” said David Loffredo, board president of The Inn at Aspen Homeowners’ Association.  “And the positive momentum doesn’t stop there.  We look forward to the continued evolution of the Buttermilk Base and the rejuvenation of this iconic ski area.”

The Inn at Aspen’s renovation comes alongside major improvements to Buttermilk Mountain, home of the famous ESPN Winter X Games.  Aspen Skiing Company, the company that owns the mountain’s base, is redeveloping the area with improvements including a new kids’ center that will house a ski school and include play areas designed to feel like a kids’ hideout.  There will also be a revamped parking lot, new bus and shuttle drop-off, and pedestrian plaza.

“The 2014-2015 ski season will go down as the season of Buttermilk’s rebirth,” said Mike Kaplan, president & CEO, Aspen Skiing Company. “With the brand new Hideout Kids Center and the completely remodeled Inn at Aspen, visitors to Buttermilk Mountain will be impressed and excited by all of the great changes.”

With a premiere location near the area’s ski school, rental shop and new kids center, The Inn at Aspen is a strong option for families planning a ski vacation. Guests are treated to a range of hotel-like services and amenities, including daily housekeeping, a complimentary airport shuttle, and free Wi-Fi, along with a heated outdoor pool, hot tub, steam room, health club and expanded event space.
