Romance is in the Colorado air! Gorgeous mountaintops, wide open spaces, and the quaint feel of our town combine to make Breck the perfect backdrop for falling in love. With the fall wedding season quickly approaching, honeymooning is on many people’s minds (including ours!). Whether you’re looking for an intimate spot to relax with your partner or have a more adventurous itinerary in mind, Breckenridge is a picture-perfect honeymoon destination. Maybe we’re a bit biased, but we can’t think of a better spot to spend your first few days together after saying “I do.” Without further ado, here are some of our top local recommendations for planning an unforgettable Breckenridge honeymoon!
Looking for a private, romantic place to stay during your honeymoon? River Ridge Rentals offers short-term vacation stays across Summit County. From ski-in/ski-out properties, to log homes, to golf course houses, River Ridge Rentals has a variety of options suited for a romantic getaway. Booking a vacation rental in Breckenridge is the perfect way to create your own private mountain oasis!
If you’re looking for more traditional amenities, be advised that hotel options in Breckenridge are pretty limited. In other words? Book that honeymoon suite as quickly as possible! Beaver Run Resort offers decadent relaxation and dining options. With its centralized location, you can easily access the town or ski right down the mountain all day long! The Breckenridge DoubleTree is another great spot that boasts beautiful Rocky Mountain views as far as the eye can see. As an added bonus, the DoubleTree is just a short walk away from the historic downtown area.
There are countless ways to customize your honeymoon in Summit County, but spending time outdoors is a must no matter the season! Hiking in Breckenridge is an activity that everyone can enjoy. From adventurous day hikes to leisurely strolls through wildflowers, there’s a beautiful path for the explorer within you. During the winter, ice skating and snowshoeing are other fun activities for outdoor lovers who are looking for something to do other than skiing!
If you don’t mind taking a drive, visit the “clothing optional” Conundrum Hot Springs near Aspen. With two main pools and four smaller springs, you can spend a day or evening taking a romantic dip with your loved one. Strawberry Park Hot Springs is another great spot for relaxing after a long day of skiing or hiking. Enjoy a massage in a private hut or a watsu therapy session in a secluded pool. Strawberry Park is also “clothing optional” at night—the perfect place to unwind!
Watching the Sunset
Breckenridge sunsets are truly spectacular, and we highly recommend watching them with a cocktail in hand! Head to the front deck of Hearthstone for happy hour for a fabulous view of the sun sinking down below the mountains. Twist also has a cozy outdoor garden/dining area. Trees strung with stringer lights help create a romantic ambience, and outdoor heaters are available when it’s chilly outside. Since the restaurant faces the 10 Mile Range, you can see the sunset with a completely unobstructed view. Take in the scenic beauty, pose for a few photos, and clink those glasses to celebrate your new adventure together!
Relaxation and Romance
You deserve to take time on your honeymoon to relax and rejuvenate together after all that wedding planning! Pamper yourselves with a massage or treatment at one of the many luxurious spas in Breckenridge, or enjoy a nice lunch or dinner together. Want to surprise your loved one with a thoughtful gesture? Grabbing some flowers from the best florist in Breckenridge, Bloom, is always a good idea!
For a romantic treat, pick up a bottle of wine along with cheese and chocolates from Main Street Station’s Ridge Street Wine or The Cheese Shop. Take some time to explore our local shops and boutiques, then grab a blanket and head to the riverfront lawn for a picnic. On Fridays during the summer, the National Repertory Orchestra opens their doors so that passersby can hear the music. Sit next to the river, uncork a bottle of wine, and enjoy!
