I found The Lodge & Spa online and it was my first choice. It was as good as was advertised. My husband & I were getting away by ourselves for our anniversary and wanted some place more quiet & romantic than the average hotel. We got exactly that! We had a mountain view room which was fabulous. Being from Illinois, the mountains were quite a sight to behold! This was our first trip to Colorado, but it won't be our last. It was a short drive to the slopes, and although we had a car, they do have a van that will shuttle you to the slopes. The Top of the World Restaurant was excellent, and they serve a free continental breakfast every day there, so you really get to enjoy the mountain views. The staff were all very kind and helpful. The only negative is that the bathroom was very small, but this was just a slight inconvenience. We highly recommend The Lodge & Spa for any couple, young or old, if you're looking for something truly special.
