Spend a Romantic Getaway in the Rocky Mountains

Posted by: admin February 1st, 2017

Love is in the cold mountain air. Spend one of the most romantic months of the year in our winter wonderland. Valentines Day is right around the corner. Plan your special day at our romantic bed and breakfast. Let us cater to you and help make memorable memories for years to come.

We put together our favorite places to explore Summit county with your special someone.

1. Sapphire Point

By far the best overlook in all of Summit county, Sapphire Point, offers a view of immense beauty. Many weddings and special occasions have been thrown at the tip of Sapphire Point. Head up Swan Mountain Rd. and park in the convenient parking lot. Go past the picnic tables and find the chair made of natural rock. From there, your jaw will drop at the stunning view. Below you, Lake Dillon glimers in the sunlight and on the horizon you can see the tips of the mountains surrounding Breckenridge. 

Pro tip- go to your local Loaf-n-Jug and pick up a pack of sunflower seeds. Along the trail there are plenty of chipmunks that will literally eat out of your hand and you will feel like a Disney Princess/Prince. Also sunset is the best time of day to head up the hill.

2. Sleigh Rides

A delightful sleigh ride through a majestic Rocky Mountain landscape. Warm cocoa. Plates loaded with hearty home-made fare. Followed by a show featuring live musical entertainment that will get the whole family laughing and engaged. 2 Below Zero and a handful of other companies are ready to show you a winter wonderland.

Pro tip- To make it a ride for two, get a 45-minute private sleigh ride for $295.

3. Go on a Hike

Summit County offers hiking trails for every ability, but for those looking to take it easy, Rainbow Lake is a local favorite where you can make what you want out of it. Enjoy a leisurely stroll or hike it all the way to Breckenridge, but either way, this is a great place to start.

If you’re looking for a more vigorous experience, head to the Lily Pad Lake trail. This 3.2-mile round-trip hike is on Buffalo Mountain and can be seen by stepping out the front door of our Frisco bed & breakfast and looking to the east. This hike offers mild grades, prolific wildflowers (depending on snowmelt), and several beaver ponds en route to the lake.
