Nothing sounds more romantic than snuggling up to your special someone in front of a warm fireplace with a bottle of champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries. At Mountain Lodge, in Telluride, Colo., this is possible and even comes with benefits when Valentine’s Day weekend is the choice for travel. Mountain Lodge is one of the top 50 ski hotels in North America according to Conde Nast Traveler’s 2010 annual poll and is offering a special when visitors stay four nights at the resort from Feb. 8-16.
Guests receive the fourth night free with a booked four-night stay in one of the 650-square-foot junior suites. These include a living area, deluxe kitchen and a master bedroom. Suites are equipped with many property amenities and services such as outdoor hot tubs with mountain views. To make the holiday even more special, the Mountain Lodge will give its guests a complimentary bottle of champagne and strawberries on their first night to celebrate.
Once outside of the resort, couples can enjoy the snow-covered ski lodge in Telluride. The slopes are popular for skiing and snowboarding during February, but there are many additional activities to take part in. Guests can visit the world-class spas, snowmobile, take a dog-sled ride, snowshoe, horseback ride or shop around the area.
During this special, the junior suites are offered at $289 per night, and discounted lift tickets are available at the Telluride Ski Resort for visitors who request them 72 hours in advance.
