Being a resort town, Keystone is always bustling with activity and a steady stream of tourists, skiers, and snowboarders. For those looking to get away from the noise of the town there are lodges like the Ski Tip Lodge where couples can retreat from the public in favor of their own company. For those looking to be in the middle of things on their Colorado vacation, there are establishments like Silver Mill Lodge at River Run.
Ski Tip Lodge
What was once an old stagecoach house built in the 1880s, the Ski Tip Lodge has transformed into something entirely different. Nestled in the wetlands of the Snake River, this lodge offers those on their Colorado vacation a place to relax and unwind.
If there is one thing that Ski Tip Lodge does well, it is creating a warm, inviting, and intimate atmosphere. The lodge has 10 charmingly rustic guestrooms to offer, as well as a number of social areas, such as their in-house restaurant and bar, sitting area, and outside patio area. Keystone vacationers will find these cozy rooms furnished with wooden four poster beds, antique armoires, and big fluffy comforters.
The Ski Tip also comes with a number of accolades such as their “Most Romantic Getaway and Best Place to Pop the Question” rating by 5280 Magazine, which makes it the obvious choice for swooning couples or celebrating spouses.
In the restaurant, guests will find a first-class dining experience. The restaurant serves traditional western foods such as lamb, beef, and river trout, but with a contemporary twist. For those looking to splurge on their stay in Keystone, there is a wine pairing option where each course can be paired with a complimentary wine.
