Valentine Escape: Manitou Cliff Dwelling, Fondue for Two

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and you might be asking yourself: what fun little escape can I put together to enjoy with my love in 2013 that isn't just another bouquet of roses and a pretty card.

We have several ideas that might bring a new twist to your Valentine's Escape .... here are a couple of ways our guests staying at Cascade Escapes might be celebrating the month of love this year.

Start off by booking your Romance Package
at Cascade Escapes!
Hot chocolate chip cookies, a specially selected wine, and chocolate-covered strawberries will be waiting for you when you reserve the Ramona Cottage.  Check out the details of this package on the Specials & Packages page of our website.

Regardless of the weather, a visit to the Manitou Cliff Dwellings is a must do!  They are open 7-days a week, and in February you can explore these ancient Anasazi dwellings between 10am-4pm.   If your timing is right, you might have the chance to meet the resident 1-year old wolf pup.  Learn more about where the Anasazi came from and where they went as you stroll through the educational presentations at the Museum.

When was the last time you shared a Fondue for Two?  This is such a fun and romantic way to enjoy food together.  Many of us haven't dipped a crusty piece of french bread into a bubbling pot of savory Swiss Cheese in years ... dare we say decades?  There is something so memorable about that taste, and you owe it to yourself to enjoy it again!  Let us make a dinner reservation for you at The Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant in downtown Manitou Springs. 

Another great fine dining option within walking distance from our Ramona Cottage is The Wines of Colorado restaurant.  Not only do they offer a fabulous lunch & dinner menu (open 10:30-8:00pm daily), they feature a tremendous selection of excellent Colorado wines and a complimentary tasting each day! 

Consider snagging tickets for the Colorado Springs Philharmonic performance on February 16, 2013 as they provide live accompaniment to Casablanca.  How much more romantic can it get?  Romance and intrigue on a big screen with a live orchestra!

We have more tricks up our sleeve, so if these suggestions don't work out, ask us for more options when you call to book your romantic escape at Cascade Escapes!
