Evergreen, Colorado has long been the destination of choice for Colorado natives who are looking for a day escape or a romantic weekend getaway. Located just 35 minutes from downtown Denver, this quaint mountain community sits at an elevation of 7,200 feet and is surrounded by forests to add a sense of seclusion to the community, even while being situated close to the city. Temperatures here are mild, rarely dipping below 45 in the winter and staying below 85 in the dead of summer, so people can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities year round.
Because of the secluded mountain community feel of Evergreen combined with the mild temperatures, it is a favorite spot among couples looking for romantic Colorado vacations. Taking a leisurely stroll around the lake or a boat ride at sunset sets the stage for an evening of togetherness and romance. Some of the most romantic places to stay in Colorado are also found in Evergreen, so choose one for your next trip.
Couples Looking for Romance Choose Highland Haven Inn
If you are looking for a private place for your romantic Colorado travel experience, consider the Highland Haven Creekside Inn. This bed and breakfast has been opening its doors to couples since 1979. Today, it offers a romantic vacation experience for Colorado vacationers.
Highland Haven Creekside Inn strives to throw out the design of the typical bed and breakfast. Here you will not find delicate china and lace tablecloths. Rather, this lodging option embraces the woods and all that makes them beautiful. Strong wood beams line the ceilings while wood-burning fireplaces are found throughout the property.
Privacy is important when you are on a romantic getaway, and that is what this inn offers. All suites, cottages, and guest rooms have private entries and private baths, and the largest unit is a full 1,500 square feet in size.
Breakfast at Highland Haven is also different than at a traditional bed and breakfast. While you will still be served an ample amount of homemade breakfast foods, you will not have to eat them around a dining room table with complete strangers. The Inn serves the food buffet style, and you can take it to your room to enjoy breakfast in bed, eat on the patio overlooking the creek, or dine in the private Champagne Room. If you wish to dine in the common eating area, of course you can.
For accommodations, choose from traditional guest rooms, junior suites and private cottages. Each is decorated in its own unique fashion, stocked with flat-panel TVs and bathrobes, and decorated in a modern, yet woody style.
If You Go
Because each of the rooms and cabins at Highland Haven offers its own unique set of benefits, some tend to fill quickly, especially during peak Colorado travel seasons.
If you are interested in staying here, book your room as early as possible. You can make reservations online at www.highlandhaven.com or by calling 1-800-674-3577. The Inn is located at 4395 Independence Trail in Evergreen.
