Proving that this is a destination for every season, cozy up to the in-room fireplace in winter, or step onto your private terrace with mountain views during the warmer months.
A Luxury Link vacation experience The Lodge & Spa at Cordillera includes buffet breakfast daily, while the resort will keep you sated the rest of the day at its pair of exquisite on-site restaurants. Mirador is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, whereas Grouse on the Green exclusively serves dinner. Mirador offers guests a panoramic view of Sawatch Range as they sample from a diverse menu. Grouse on the Green brings an authentic Irish pub feel to the Rockies, with a menu featuring corned beef and fish & chips and a large selection of international beers.
“Try the prime rib sliders at restaurant Mirador; three delicious mini croissants filled with prime rib, topped with cheese and arugula. Grouse on the Green is known for their fish tacos and Irish nachos,” said Cordillera Director of Rooms Marleen Bosch.
Guests at this Rocky Mountain retreat are generally an active bunch, and well-catered-to with a range of seasonal activities. Skiers and snowboarders will make ample use of the resort’s complimentary shuttle to the world-class trails at nearby Vail or Beaver Creek (home of the private Cordillera Club), while snowshoeing and snowmobile tours can also be arranged.
When the snow melts, the hotel offers mountain biking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding and fly fishing on its private four-mile stretch of river nearby.
Listening to Bosch, it may be difficult to decide the best time of year to plan your stay at The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera.
“Skiing is best in February, June is beautiful for wild flowers, August offers amazing summer weather and golf, and September you can come see the colors on the trees change. It’s the most amazing pallet of fall colors,” she said.
With the word “spa” in its name, rest assured Cordillera indulges guests who come to relax, recharge and refresh. The award-winning Spa at Cordillera offers a range of massage packages, skin treatments and more.
“Not a skier? Get warm and cozy in the steam room at the Spa before enjoying a Swedish massage or body wrap treatment with Sole connection,” said Bosch.
Some find their moment of Zen while golfing, and with five beautiful courses in the immediate area, links-lovers are well catered to.
