Treat the family to a late afternoon lunch at Vista Montagne for seasonally inspired Italian eats. Or grab a quick bite at Rockies Marketplace. Did we mention there’s 24-hour room service?


Go ahead, treat yourself a little during your stay at Gaylord Rockies. The Relache Spa & Salon is a full-service relaxation destination designed to soothe your mind, body, and soul. Choose from traditional spa treatments like manicures and waxing services. Or, opt for a full-body massage, body wrap, or facial. You can also enjoy a session inside the steam room if you’re looking for ultimate relaxation.


With the Rocky Mountains in view, wander along the Gaylord Rockies grounds. Walking and hiking trails weave through the property, making it easy to breathe the fresh mountain air. The recreation facility offers complimentary bikes and helmets for guests to take on the trails. Play a round of mini golf, or practice your pickleball skills on the outdoor courts.

Nothing says staycation like a lazy river. Gear up for an afternoon at Arapahoe Springs indoor/outdoor pool complete with spa-whirlpools, heated lap pools, and three water slides. The lazy river (open May through September), is an outdoor facility that allows visitors to sit back, relax and coast by. Bring the kids to enjoy the Gaylord Rockies SummerFest; an Alice in Wonderland themed summer event with water activities, a scavenger hunt, music, and more. Reserve your summer staycation spot here.
