At a Romantic Mountainside Dinner at Beano’s Tavern

The mountainside five-course dinner is only accessible by snow cat and Beano Cabin’s own open-air sleigh ride up the scenic mountain. After you arrive at the rustic, yet upscale cabin, be prepared for a feast that would give any Michelin Star restaurant a run for their money. From the impeccable service to watching the sunset and the live music, this is an experience to ignite amorous feelings in anyone. Menu highlights include the Wood Grilled Organic Egg, Winter Squash Salad and Whisky Glazed Berkshire Pork Porterhouse.

At Vail Cascade Resort and Spa

Colorado has some of the most beautiful, mountainside resorts, some complete with luxury condo collections for rent. We checked out Blue Spruce West at Vail Cascade Resort and Spa and fell in love. Decked out with wood burning fireplaces, outdoor hot tubs and BBQ’s, you can get cozy in your spacious 2,700-square-foot, four-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom dream home. Rustic elegance at its best, spend your days skiing on Vail Mountain (with chair 20 located right on the property), and your nights by the fire with a bottle of wine. If you want to spend time at the resort, call the free shuttle service and all of the resort amenities (including hot tubs, pools, gym and spa) are at your fingertips.

On a Romantic Train Ride

Colorado is known as a majestic state that can be adventurously explored by train, on routes that can’t be seen by the average traveler on the road. Try a day trip, or sunset ride through the Rocky Mountains over tracks that have been in operation for over 130 years.

On a Sleigh Ride

Nothing says romance like a classic old-fashioned horse-drawn sleigh ride. Explore snow-covered meadows, bubbling streams and a snow-capped winter wonderland as you cuddle under warm blankets.
