Escape to the mountains in Colorado for a fantastic winter weekend vacation! From your base at Colorado Bear Creek Cabins, you can enjoy three days of winter fun. Here are some winter vacation ideas located near Evergreen, Colorado.
Winter Vacations Itinerary
Get out of work early and plan to arrive at Colorado Bear Creek Cabins Friday afternoon. Check-in at your cabin is after 3 pm. Get settled into your cabin and relax a bit before heading out for dinner. Bring in the firewood to start a fire in the fireplace after dinner. Take a short walk outside along the creek and shed your city and work cares away.
Your Escape on Friday
For dinner, try The Bistro at Marshdale. This is an elegant yet casual fine dining establishment. Every Friday, they have a special from their Executive Chef’s kitchen. Prime rib, sea scallops, lobster tail, and king crab legs are their Friday Night Specials. Check out the specials for the week and make online reservations here. The nightly dinner menu is also available online. They also offer Sunday brunch.
After dinner, pick up a bottle of wine or your favorite adult beverage to enjoy in front of the fire. Evergreen Discount Liquors has all you need. You can check out their current specials here. You brought the wood in earlier and it will start quicker now that it is at room temperature. Have a pleasant evening and sleep well!
A Winter Vacations Saturday
Wake up early Saturday to hit the slopes! Make breakfast right in the cabin to get to the ski area early. Ski Loveland is only a 45-minute drive away. They have rentals as well as ski instruction. Forgot your gloves? They also have clothing rentals. Even if you didn’t plan on skiing when you arrived, Loveland has a Day-Tripper package that includes all equipment, clothing, and lift ticket. Taking a lesson is a great idea even if you are an experienced skier. They have group and private lessons for all levels: first-timer to advanced. If skiing isn’t your thing, try snowshoeing. You can rent snowshoes if you don’t own a pair. Or, perhaps you’d like a snowmobile tour. You can take a guided tour or just rent snowmobiles (if you aren’t bringing your own) and head out on an unguided tour. Grab lunch at the ski area. Or, in Georgetown, try the Dusty Rose Tea Room, a charming Victorian building built in 1875. They feature tea, pastries, soup, and sandwiches served all day.
Back in Evergreen, head to Beau Jo’s Colorado Style Pizza for one of their famous Mountain Pies and a beer. There is also a salad bar featuring over twenty items. They have an extensive beer menu with happy hour from 4 till 6 pm. Can’t finish a Mountain Pie? Bring the leftovers back to the cabin and put them in the refrigerator.
Enjoy another relaxing evening curled up with a book in front of the fire. Or watch a movie on Netflix with the free wifi. Then get a good night’s sleep after your full day in the sun and snow.
Sunday in Evergreen, CO
On Sunday morning, enjoy breakfast before packing. Check-out is before 11 am. Load up your car and head to downtown Evergreen for ice skating on Evergreen Lake. You can bring your own skates or rent them there. Too worn out from yesterday? Do some shopping downtown. There are many beautiful things to choose from to take home with you. Try Evergreen Crafters for unique items that you cannot find elsewhere. Their inventory is always changing, so if you find something you love, you better grab it! They also offer free gift wrapping. The Evergreen Gallery has art and gifts. Be sure to check out the exclusive Evergreen Angels jewelry. Shop Evergreen Goldsmiths for original gold and silver jewelry.
Take a break from skating or shopping and have lunch at Java Groove. Enjoy a sandwich and a coffee drink or smoothie. Don’t forget dessert! There is always a selection of yummy cakes in the dessert case.
