Couple’s Massage with Telluride Spa Concierge
The massages services offered by Telluride Spa Concierge are a step beyond your everyday massage, and because they go one step further, offering a personal massage in your home, you don’t even have to venture out into the cold to be spoiled! Enjoy a custom massage featuring any of their soothing massage styles, including Swedish, deep tissue, sports, and therapeutic bodywork. Couples that massage together live together happier, and choosing to stay in and look at the snow through the windows while being pampered and spoiled may make this activity the one you never forget!
Dashing through the Snow with Telluride Sleighs and Wagons
Magical sleigh rides through the snow are not reserved for just Christmas; there is no better way to get your romance on than when you cuddle under warm blankets on a sleigh ride through the countryside. And because the quickest way to any person’s heart is through their stomach, Telluride Sleighs and Wagons Dinner Sleigh Rides offers the optimal romantic experience! They will pick you up at your love nest and transport you to their Aldasoro Family Ranch, where a horse-drawn sleigh will whisk you across the snow-covered landscape to the dinner site—which happens to be an authentic sheep camp! Dinner and cocktails will be served, after which your carriage will transport you back to the ranch and the van will take you back to your vacation home away from home. Can you think of a more romantic way to spend a winter’s night? We definitely can’t! Reservations can be made here.
Popping the Question
Not all couples on Valentine’s Day getaway are already married, and if you are thinking about popping the question during your stay, the Telluride Gondola offers the perfect opportunity to do so. Taking 13 minutes to reach its destination, the gondola cars are warm, cozy, and offer incredible views of the countryside and mountains that make our town a favorite ski destination, adding an extra touch of romance to the very important question you are about to ask. Sunset on Valentine’s Day arrives at 5:49 PM, allowing you to time your ride with the setting of the sun and ensuring that the moment is as perfect as any human-generated moment can be! Allred’s Restaurant, located at the top of the Telluride Gondola, can be the perfect exclamation point to punctuate your already fantastic evening, offering mountainside views and a menu filled with savory dining choices! You can even book a local photographer like Lisa Marie Wright Photography to capture your special moment.
Preparing the Heart for Romance
According to the ancient Roman poet Pūblius Ovidius Nāsō (Ovid), “Wine prepares the heart for love,” and if your heart loves a good glass of wine as much as ours, Alpino Vino is destined to steal your heart! Offering insanely good wines and a lunch and dinner menu filled with Italian favorites that reflects the good taste of the wine, Alpino Vino is located at 12100 Camels’ Garden Road and is billed as the highest elevation restaurant in North America. You can ski to the restaurant in the daytime, but if you really want to impress your best girl or guy, you can travel via a custom-built snow coach!
The Perfect Telluride Activities for Valentine’s Night
Of course, the most romantic nights are often the ones you spend at home, and our cozy condos offer an appeal that will make you most happy. Pour a glass of wine to go with the box of chocolates purchased at Telluride Truffle Artisan Chocolate shop and sit in front of a fire feeling toasty and warm as the snow falls outside. A romantic dinner prepared in our fully equipped kitchens will speak to the heart as you share a meal and your secrets and desires on this, the most fairy tale night of the year. When the fire dies down to bright red embers and you can’t stay awake another minute, sliding between the silky soft linens of our premium beds will be even sweeter as you cuddle with your favorite Valentine.
