One of the benefits of living in the Southwest is having access to some of the most beautiful and romantic lodges in the country. Here are a few Utah getaways to visit this season.
Sundance Mountain Resort
Head over to this famous resort for the ultimate winter weekend with your sweetheart. There are plenty of cabins and rooms for rent that feature rustic decor and giant windows that look out onto epic views, making for perfect cuddling opportunities. They also have a spa where you can relax and experience the ultimate in pampering together, an art studio where you can both take a variety of classes and learn new skills, and of course, there’s the Nordic Ski Center where you can spend hours bonding on the trails.
Stein Eriksen Lodge
Deer Valley is home to one of the most luxurious resorts in the state – and the perfect place to indulge in a seriously romantic winter getaway. Check out their luxury suites and bedrooms, which feature beautiful views, cozy fireplaces, and a set of plush robes and slippers to make sure your time at the resort is as comfortable as possible. If you decide to leave the room, you’ll be able to enjoy all kinds of winter recreation, including skiing, sledding, and snowshoeing. And don’t miss the horse-drawn sleigh ride for the ultimate romantic experience.
If you’re an active couple and the term “romantic getaway” includes opportunities for bonding through outdoor recreation, then head to Park City with your sweetheart. You’ll find beautiful lodging at the base of Park City Mountain’s Town Lift, giving you both a cozy, romantic place to curl up by the fire, as well as easy access to some of the best skiing in Utah.
Red River Ranch
This is the ultimate getaway into the beauty and majesty of the West. The rooms at the lodge give you views of the garden and nearby cliffs, which you can explore up close and personal with a visit to nearby Capitol Reef National Park. There are also plenty of great dining options in the area for a romantic, Western-style dinner, including The Broken Spur, Capitol Reef Café, or Rim Rock Restaurant.
