Vista Verde Ranch
Nestled deep in the Rocky Mountains, Vista Verde is a unique luxury…
Are you looking for a honeymoon destination with stunning mountain scenery, some of the finest powder skiing in the world, winter traditions like sleigh rides and cozy cabin stays, gourmet food and old-fashioned Western hospitality? Then Steamboat Springs is the right choice for you. It’s a quieter town than the ski resorts, but encapsulates the essential Colorado experience – natural beauty, four-seasons outdoors activities, the feel of the Old West, hot springs, and people who are friendly, direct and unassuming. There are also wine tastings, gourmet food, and hot air balloon rides across the valleys and meadows.
The area boasts some of the finest champagne powder skiing in the world, and has, not surprisingly, produced a large number of US Olympic skiers. Like all of Colorado, its natural beauty makes it an appealing destination in the summer, spring and fall as well. Whitewater rafting, fishing, camping and hiking are some of the highlights of summer outdoor activities.
The Old Town has an authentic western flavor, and to really immerse yourselves you can schedule a stay at a ranch for a rustic and romantic atmosphere. Expect the usual as well as some unusual activities on offer. Besides boating, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and campfires, many ranches also have gourmet cuisine, live music, cooking classes, wine tastings, yoga classes and spa treatments. For a romantic retreat, you can choose a winter cabin stay which combines privacy with easy access to nearby ski areas.
