When the winter starts to get long and it feels like there’s no end in sight to the snow, the cold, and the strong desire to not move from your couch, that’s when you know it’s time to plan a little getaway. Bundle up with your sweetie and head to one of these beautiful Colorado spots for a little staycation. If you do it right, it might even reignite your love of winter for just long enough to get you through to spring.
A classic for the picturesque, luxury Colorado getaway, the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs features stunning mountain views, and even more gorgeous accommodations. You can choose from rooms, suites, cottages, and the estate house (we’d recommend sticking with the first two for a quick couple’s getaway), and enjoy robust amenities including a year-round hot tub, a beauty salon, and so much more. It’s an exquisite little getaway full of romantic touches and those beautiful mountain views that we all know and love.
The Cliff House at Pikes Peak
Just a little further outside of Colorado Springs in Maintou Springs you’ll find the Cliff House at Pikes Peak. Built in the winter of 1873, this house nestled at the foot of Pikes Peak features 54 beautiful rooms and suites with a rich history. You can get suites featuring cozy amenities like gas fireplaces and two-person spa tubs. Sounds amazing, right?
ART, a Hotel
If you really don’t want to drive in the Colorado winter conditions, but you still want to spend a weekend away from the house, ART, a Hotel in downtown Denver is the perfect “staycation” getaway. It’s such an eclectic, chic place with two art galleries, and gorgeous art adorning all the walls and guest rooms. The luxury takes a modern twist with intimate service and state-of-the-art amenities. If your idea of the perfect date is spending time wandering through art galleries and ordering room service, this is the perfect spot for you.
For the beer lovers out there (we know you exist, it is Denver after all), consider putting together a little brewery tour for a cold winter’s weekend. Make sure your travel is taken care of and spend a couple of days sampling all the craft beer the city has to offer. Nothing warms you up quite like a beer or two…or five.
RiNo First Fridays
This one requires a little more bundling up, but it’s a great way to see all that RiNo has to offer and take in some the sights of some gorgeous local art while you’re at it. First Fridays in River North feature local artists and stop into several spots throughout the neighborhood to enjoy food, drinks, art, live music, and more.
If you’re looking for a way to level up that couple’s getaway, schedule in a stop at Monty Nuss for a couples photography session, and solidify those memories for years to come.
