A Quick Getaway to Evergreen Colorado

This probably has been one of my favorite getaways in a long time. We had a credit with Southwest Airlines that was going to expire really soon. I told Ike for him to find a fun place we could go for a quick weekend trip. He googled it on the web and found Evergreen Colorado. I had never even heard of the little town. It was about 35 miles outside of Denver. Ike found the cutest little cabins called, "The Cabins at Country Road".

We flew out on a friday morning. Rented a car and drove to Evergreen. The cabins were absolutely adorable. The one we stayed in was called The Bootlegger Cabin. It was decorated so cute with old whisky barrels. The area around the cabin was like a little piece of heaven. There was a beautiful creek that ran right through it. The grass was green and the trees were huge and gorgeous. There were lounge chairs for us to use by the creek.  Even a hammock that Ike enjoyed.  There was a private hot tub that we also took advantage of each night. The property had a cute little cafe too that we ate at a few times. We stayed there for two nights.

On the first evening we explored the little town and ate at a fun steak house then went to a bar type setting and lightened to an area band play. The next day we again explored the area and did a little shopping. That night we attended a musical at a local playhouse in evergreen. The show was so good.  We loved it. The next day we checked out of our cabin and went an took the most beautiful scenic drive I ever had been on up to Mt. Evans. It was the highest paved road in north america. We ate lunch at the lake up there. We then headed down and back to the airport where we flew home. The weekend was quick but was so fun to explore a new city. It really was a great little getaway! Thanks honey for finding such a fun place for us to go!
