TOP 10 REASONS TO STAY AT CHAUTAUQUA
WE NARROWED IT DOWN FOR YOU
1. SPECTACULAR VIEWS
CLOSE TO BOULDER’S ICONIC FLATIRONS MOUNTAINS
Chautauqua’s cottages and lodges are nestled directly below the Flatirons mountains, one of Colorado’s top visitor destinations with over a million visitors each year. Your group will marvel at dramatic views in every direction.
2. PERFECT LOCATION
MINUTES FROM DOWNTOWN BOULDER AND THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO
Explore the mountains just outside your door, Boulder’s famous Pearl Street Mall, and CU Boulder’s stunning campus. Enjoy outdoor activities of all kinds, fine dining, great shopping, and nightclubs, all within walking distance, or stay close to home and wander the contemplative gardens right outside your cottage door. We are also under an hour from Denver and Denver International Airport and can offer great value transportation suggestions through our partners.
3. PLENTY OF OPTIONS
CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE
Choose from studio cottages to eight-bedroom lodges, with many accessible options. Our spaces offer complimentary wi-fi, parking, and full kitchens or kitchenettes. Most cottages and lodge rooms have been recently restored while retaining their unique character and charming vintage touches.
4. FAMILY FRIENDLY
A REAL VACATION
Your family will love hiking the trails, playing tennis, basketball, or pickleball, or enjoying our spectacular new playground complete with a mini-Auditorium and kid-sized Flatirons. Our cottages and lodges offer ample space to spread out – and no televisions make for quality family time. Take a night off from cooking and enjoy the Dining Hall’s farm-to-table Colorado bistro cuisine, and don’t forget to cap off your day with ice cream for everyone at the General Store!
5. UNLIMITED EXPERIENCES
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
Your imagination is the limit when it comes to experiencing Chautauqua. Not only do we offer year-round arts, culture, and entertainment opportunities, including kids’ hiking plays and other activities, we are surrounded by 40 miles of Rocky Mountain hiking trails and open-space. As well as our popular scheduled retreats (click here for upcoming dates), our Experiences Curator can arrange guided nature hikes, skiing, fly fishing, horseback riding, and just about any other adventure for lodging guests. Organizations and groups looking for the perfect place to connect and inspire, should inquire at [email protected] about Chautauqua’s all-inclusive, custom retreat programs.
6. DINING, SHOPPING & EVENTS
IT’S ALL HERE
Looking for more than spectacular mountains and great hiking? Enjoy fine dining at Chautauqua’s historic Dining Hall (guests receive a 10% discount) or take a walk to Pearl Street Mall and pick from hundreds of restaurants and shops. Need a quick coffee or snack? Stop in at the General Store and don’t forget to pick up a gift to take back home. And, be sure to plan your stay around a concert in the Auditorium, a talk at the Community House, or one of our popular Community Events like the October Latinx Community Celebration or December WinterFest!
7. NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARK
FOUNDED IN 1898
There are only 26 National Historic Landmarks in Colorado and just two that offer lodging. Step back in time and become part of Chautauqua’s living history by staying in a historic cottage or attending an Auditorium or Community House event. For history buffs, we recommend our self-guided history tour, or read The Grand Assembly by Mary H. Galey, located in every cottage!
8. SAFE LODGING
YOUR SAFETY IS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY
Chautauqua’s stand-alone cottages offer the ultimate in privacy and safety. Guests have their own cottage and never share hallways or elevators, unless they prefer one of our historic lodges. Ceiling fans circulate fresh mountain air, while allergen-free floor coverings and our “Colorado Clean” hygiene measures take health and safety to Flatirons Heights.
9. PET-FRIENDLY & PET FREE OPTIONS
SAVE ON BOARDING COSTS
So you can plan impromptu breaks more easily, Chautauqua offers a number of pet-friendly cottages. Request a pet-friendly cottage and bring your four-legged family members, avoiding the extra cost and hassle of boarding your dog. For allergy-sensitive guests, many cottages and all of our lodges are strictly pet-free.
10. GREAT SPECIALS & GUEST BENEFITS
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR DEALS
Our guests benefit from exclusive discounts at the Chautauqua Dining Hall and General Store, as well as concerts and lectures, seasonal social events, and tree and history tours. Many of these specials are for the spring, fall, and winter seasons when Chautauqua is quieter and uniquely beautiful. Long-term stays receive major discounts and our returning guests receive loyalty discounts.
