How to Get There
If you have never been, I encourage you to try it. I happen to live nearby, so I can stop by for dining or shopping anytime I feel like it. But for those who can't, you can enjoy Western luxury by making a trip to the Broadmoor.
Be forewarned: It is expensive*, and that means so are the meals, activities, shopping, etc. But that's what vacations are for. To splurge a little and make a life-long memory. If you can afford to stay here, you will likely refer to this trip for decades to come. I promise you.
• Sitting by the lake, listening to the quarterly chimes from the Shrine to the Sun, watching a black and white swan with sweeping elegance;
• Perusing some of Mr. Spenser Penrose’s odds and ends from the early twentieth century, golfing in the shade of Cheyenne Mountain, listening to the splash of a fountain to quiet one’s soul;
• Being enraptured by the museum-like quality of the art everywhere you turn, a bridge over quiet waters, and a tiny little weeping mulberry tree;
• Sitting in a nook in the library, marveling at the life-size gingerbread house in December, and of course, the invigorating, pervasive fresh pine-mountain air.
These are some of the things I love about the Broadmoor. I invite you to come, take your rest and have holiday.
By the way, if you enjoy history, you can spend a day just stopping at all of the displays set up along the walls, everywhere you go. Shopping abounds--also, check the Rock/Gem store and feel like you take home a piece of the Earth. And if you want to go for a ride, you might also like to check out the Garden of the Gods, Air Force Academy, Olympic Center, and heaps of other local attractions.
*While the Broadmoor is genuinely world-class, it is reputed that Aspen, CO boasts even a finer establishment (Little Nell). But remember, Aspen was founded as a place for billionaires to raise their children...and it’s another three hours away by car.
The resort grounds are beautiful! The rooms are spacious and impeccably maintained. The golf courses are challenging and the views breathtaking. The staff is unbelievably accommodating. We ate ate six different restaurants on the premises and each was excellent. There was so much to do in a short time like tennis, golf, spa, exercise room, shopping, dining, hiking, paddle boating, swimming and even a museum on premises. Just off the premises and accessible by free shuttle service are the Cheyenne Zoo, Seven Falls Park and the town of Colorado Springs. All worth a visit, especially the zoo! We had such wonderful time that we look forward to returning sometime soon!
Always elegant and beautiful, service is phenomenal. We always come here with family just to look around and enjoy the place. Always makes your feel good about it. I love to get their pistachio gelato from cafe Julies and its delicious. Natural epicurean is a good healthy place for lunch during summer time specially when you have allergies and you want healthy options. Their patio is beautiful with plants, butterflies and you can see hummingbird if sometimes you get lucky to see them around plus the mountain view is so beautiful.
