Concierge.com's insider take:
Throw a patterned pillow out of a window in the Goldener, and you'll nearly hit the Deer Valley Sterling chairlift. The first part of that sentence is possible because the 20-room property is right on the slopes of Deer Valley. The urge to hurl a pillow? Blame the hodgepodge of imported Austrian furniture stuffing the guest rooms. In any case, the easy mountain access is the selling point. Valets will store your skis, the wood-burning fireplaces in many rooms make it easy to dry out gloves, and all bathrooms have granite countertops and travertine tile. Look for package deals that include room, lift tickets, and a massage for a good price. In the restaurant, Swiss-trained executive chef James Dumas turns out elk and chestnut spaetzle; fondue blended from Gruyère, Appenzeller, Emmentaler, and Vacherin cheeses; and other hearty classics.
Closed from mid-April–mid-June and mid-October–early December.
