The Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs is a destination all in itself.  It is one of the most stunning properties that are on our travel list and we enjoy it for many reasons: the quality of furnishings, beauty of the hotel and resort, and the quality of food are truly a masterpiece!

We went down to stay for a night for RedBeard’s birthday.  Thanks, grandma for manning the five kiddos!  It was just as magical as we hoped it would be. We arrived late which is nothing new for us. The staff was still incredibly kind and even helped us with an off-hand request at midnight.  The morning came and we ordered breakfast in the room, it was glorious!

Our room service at the Broadmoor, breakfast in bed. Glass plates with eggs, French toast, oatmeal, etc.

What made it special? Not only was it delicious, but they bring the food in a separate warming container, set up a legit table with china and crystal, pour your drinks and then make sure everything is perfect – all while you sit in bed.  It is like a restaurant in your room.  So often, room service food is slightly cold and gross by the time it actually gets to you.  Totally not the case for our breakfast in Broadmoor.  It was still warm, delicious, gourmet food.  Since I’ve had to go gluten-free, I especially loved the variety of their menu and the attention to food allergies.

After staying every possible second in the room that we could, we ventured to the gym.  It is huge and wonderful.  Then we paid for access to the Seven Falls hike.  The land where this set of waterfalls is located used to be owned by the state, but when a flood caused a lot of damage and threatened to close the area, the Broadmoor bought the property.  I was a little disappointed it wasn’t included with our stay (which is at a very premium price), but that’s OK.  It was (I think) $18 purchase price.  We were able to walk to the start of the hike from the hotel. Going to the falls is very easy.  The way is a paved, wide road and is around a mile at most.  However, the staircase to view all of the seven waterfalls is quite a climb!  It is very steep and gave me some anxiety coming down. I was glad we did it as a couple, with no children to worry about falling off or down the steep stairs.

The hike itself is wonderfully maintained, with lots of signs pointing to rock formations. There are also a couple of gift and snack shops, and a restaurant at the top.  I would love to eat there someday!

We had a little rainfall in the afternoon (so typical for a Colorado summer), but otherwise, the weather was perfect.

I wanted to do the falconry class with Chris for his birthday, but we ran out of time.  It was put on by the resort.  Some other fun activities available are a killer pool with a great kids’ area, a bowling alley, incredible artwork,  more than a dozen eating options, and scenery for days.  We always look forward to going back!
