Perfect for weekend getaway
Posted Aug 22, 2016
First and foremost, if you're looking for a getaway to the Rockies for a weekend from somewhere else in the country, this place is perfect because its only about 1 hour 15 minutes from the Denver Int'l Airport: Straight west on I-70, exit at Georgetown, CO, and it is directly south of the Interstate. Just far enough that you don't hear the traffic, but close enough that if you're arriving at night, you're right there when you get off the highway.
The rooms face a babbling mountain river and have a great Old World ski chalet vibe. Everyone on the staff was very friendly. The hot tub was clean and hot. The fireplace was warm.
Have to also point out, they don't use keys for the rooms or hotel. They use keypads with a PIN number you choose. This is very convenient. No need to always remember to grab your key and no risk of being locked out. That said, please CALL AHEAD to set up the PIN code if you're going to arrive late at night after the lobby closes.
Georgetown is very centrally located to all sorts of activities nearby: Jeeping, hiking, fishing, skiing, etc. Keystone and Breckenridge are close by as are all sorts of great off-road trails. Georgetown itself is very quaint and has a number of great little restaurants within walking distance.
All said, it is a great place for couples especially! Enjoy!
