Make your Valentine’s Day plans well ahead of time this year. Accommodation in Grand Lake will be booking up earlier than usual if trends are to be believed. Grand County hotels are always humming with activity over this long, 3 day weekend in February. Monday February 15th is President’s Day, a public holiday, so you can take advantage of the holiday and extend a great weekend getaway.
Although the Rapids Restaurant usually serves dinner Wednesday through Saturday in the winter, we will definitely be serving dinner to you and your sweetheart on Sunday, February 14th. The Rapids Restaurant is regularly voted as the “most romantic dining experience” by Grand County locals.
Our fantastic “Winter Special Offer” reduced room rates are valid all through the holiday weekend. Some of the Rapids Suites are pet-friendly if you have another sweetheart or two you would like to bring along. Or perhaps you would enjoy a real wood burning fireplace in Rapids Condo 1B or a gas fireplace in one of the River View Condos.
Take your loved one for a relaxing soak at Hot Sulphur Springs in one of their 21 outdoor pools, or try them all. Whether you relax under the stars or amidst snowflakes, it is a great winter experience. Rent a snowmobile for two and ride the 100 or so miles of groomed trails, enjoying breathtaking scenery and a picnic lunch. Perhaps you would like to borrow ice skates and take a twirl on the ice rink in the park or experience ice-fishing for the first time (contact Rocky Mountain Outfitters). The Grand Lake Nordic Center also offers a two for one pass on Valentine’s Day for a romantic cross country ski or snowshoe.
Nothing beats a refreshing Valentine’s Day getaway in Grand Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park and the stunning Grand County winter playground.
