Green Is Just a Suggestion
Although you may find a touch of green in a throw pillow on the couch, a book in the bookshelf, or even a plate in the cabinet, the theory behind our decorating styles is that green is just a suggestion! Hold Ireland near and dear to your heart as you prepare corned beef and cabbage in kitchens that are cheerful and spacious, equipped with everything you need except the food! Raise a glass in toast to your old country family members at dining room tables designed to serve multiple purposes; play a game of Irish Opoly, put together a puzzle featuring a charming, thatched-roof cottage, or of course, enjoy a feast together as a family!
Living rooms of our Winter Park St Patricks Day rentals offer sofas so comfortable that many unplanned naps will be taken, and state of the art televisions allow guests to enjoy a movie night or watch all their favorite Irish themed shows; Boondock Saints is one of our favorites, but it can be a little dark and isn’t exactly appropriate for children, so be warned! Decks, patios, and balconies allow guests to take the fun outdoors, occasionally offering hot tubs, usually featuring barbecue grills, and always offering a view that will take your breath away! These are the spots you will find yourself sipping on your Irish whiskey, watching the sunset over the mountains, and if you have had enough sips, practicing your favorite Irish songs in your most mournful tones!
Finally, when the last sip of green beer has been sipped and your eyelids are fighting a battle to stay open, slide away to dreamland in bedrooms made to make the troubles of the world disappear. Dreams of leprechauns and shamrocks will rock your night, and when you awaken each morning feeling rested, recharged, and ready to face another day of fun and frolic in Winter Park, the realization that traveling for St. Paddy’s Day was a good thing will take yet another burden from your shoulders.
Yummy Tummy Treats
St. Patrick’s Day wouldn’t be the same without sampling some delightful dishes. Colorado offers a variety of top-notch restaurants, each serving a unique menu. If you love meat, Deno’s Mountain Bistro blends classy cuisine with a laid-back ambiance, creating the perfect steakhouse experience. Explore a variety of tasty signature steaks and chops, including Black Angus New York Strip, Angus Center Cut Filet, Black Angus Ribeye, and the Signature Gold Canyon Bone-In Pork Chop. The pizza end doesn’t disappoint either, with options such as Pepper Boy, Margarita Classico, Berkeley Boulder, DiCola Southside, and Cheese. If you know you can’t go without your cup of joe, settle your caffeine craving at Rocky Mountain Roastery Cafe. The coffee menu features offerings like Pour Over, Cafe Au Lait, Java Jolt, Cold Brew, and three assortments of Drip. For drinks that offer less caffeine, you can take your pick from a smoothie, hot cocoa, Italian soda, or a streamer. Pair your beverage with palatable pastries, including scones, cinnamon rolls, cookies, sweet croissants, muffins, or brownies. You can also check out other eateries such as Lime, Fontenot’s Seafood & Grill, Pepe Osaka’s Fish Taco, and The Ditch on 40 among others.
Time Travel at Cozens
Traversing time is possible after all. At Cozens Ranch Museum, take a journey back to the late 19th century and get a taste of what life was like back in the day. The museum offers what no history book can – a first-hand, on-site view of Fraser Valley’s maiden homestead. You can explore the restored two-story home and see some pictures of the Cozens family. The house served as a shelter where numerous travelers would rest and eat after an arduous journey across the Berthoud Pass. The ranch on which the museum sits once covered some seven hundred acres, but all that’s left today are the restored structures. One of the best features is that the museum stays open all year, making it an excellent addition to your St. Patrick’s travel itinerary. Summertime sees the museum open throughout the week, with admission between 10 AM and 4 PM. During winter, the museum opens from Thursday to Monday and closes on Tuesday and Wednesday, with admission from 10 AM to 4 PM. Adults pay $8 for admission, while seniors pay $7 to enter. Children between 6 and 17 years pay $5, with kids under 5 getting a free entry pass.
Winter Wonders and Spring Flings
This holiday occurs just a few days shy of spring, but the ski resorts don’t see it that way, as they stay open through April or May, allowing visitors to participate in their favorite winter sports for just a few weeks more! Spend your days skiing, snowboarding, or après skiing at local bars and restaurants, and come home to the beauty of tender buds pushing their way through the dark Colorado soil! Wear t-shirts and jeans all day as you explore downtown Winter Park with your face turned to the heat of the sun, and sit by the fire each night, watching big fat snowflakes drift gently to the ground! Heated pools and hot tubs give you the opportunity to participate in your favorite summer sports, and of course, snow-covered hills offer the perfect places to play with toddlers who are experiencing snow for the first time!
Sipping hot chocolate and throwing snowballs are two of life’s greatest pleasures, and when you return to the comfort of your Winter Park St. Patrick’s Day rental, you can participate in two more: sunning yourself on the deck with an ice-cold beer in hand! There are no rules in these days between seasons, and our only rule for you is to have the time of your life. This vacation filled with winter wonders and spring flings promises to be the adventure you have been craving, and we are so happy that we can give you these moments of fun!
