looking for a romantic retreat after a few days in denver

We will be in Denver a few days for my husbands birthday at the end of september. I am looking for a beautiful spot for a long weekend after we explore the city. I would like to do some white water rafting, maybe fishing and hiking. It will be his first time to Colorado so I want to make sure he sees the natural beauty the state offers. We can rent a car and drive from denver to pretty much anywhere but we only have about 2 or 3 nights after denver, so I am looking for suggestions for a cabin or romantic lodge with beautiful scenery not too far from town. Thanks!

Whitewater rafting is a seasonal activity that ends by Labor Day or shortly thereafter. It will not be an option in late September.

Avalanche Ranch Hot Springs might be nice, there should still be some great fall colors and you can visit Aspen, Redstone and Glenwood Springs easily. There is fishing along the Crystal and Roaring Fork rivers, hiking in Marble or up to Hanging Lake in Glenwood Canyon. Lots to do in close proximity. http://avalancheranch.com
