Live like a President in Beaver Creek

Gerard Ford was the longest living president. Maybe his sweet Beaver Creek mountain home helped. Now you can sleep there, too.
President Ford's Governor's Lodge, Beaver Creek

President Gerald Ford lived to the ripe age of 93, longer than any other president. Ford was an avid skier, so we like to think that his time on the slopes had a hand in his longevity. Or maybe it was just hanging out après in Governor’s Lodge, Ford’s palatial slopeside Beaver Creek home. You can be the judge, as Ford’s luxury chalet is now available for short-term rental. Presidential-level amenities in the 11,000-square-foot retreat include: indoor pool, spa, exercise room, home theater, massage room and 600-bottle wine room. There are eight bedrooms and a kid’s loft. And, naturally, a Seal of the President of the United States is engraved in the entryway. Secret service agents are not included. And if you like the place, the home is on the market for about $11 million—down $3.5 million. Sounds like a motivated seller.
