“The majesty and tranquility of the Colorado Rockies will inspire you and help restore your relationship.”
The setting where your marriage counseling weekend intensive will be held is absolutely alluring.
From Louisville, where my office is located, you’ll enjoy sweeping views of the snow-capped peaks of the continental divide just a short ways to the west. Louisville is located right on the edge of Boulder and was twice rated by Money Magazine as the number one small city in America to live in. The many walking/bicycling trails and the idyllic small-town feel of old Louisville contributed to this top rating.
During your free time you can relax, recreate, or do both.
The choice is yours!
For relaxation, you might want to spend some time just resting at your hotel. You can lounge by the pool, get a massage, and perhaps have dinner delivered to your room.
For recreation, you can drive to the top of nearby Flagstaff Mountain where you can go for a short hike and enjoy amazing views of the Indian Peaks. Or you can explore the romantic Pearl Street Mall in the historic part of Boulder, a pedestrian mall that is resplendent with shops, art galleries, restaurants, and sidewalk shows.
In the summer you can take in a concert at the Colorado Chautauqua or a Shakespearean play at the University of Colorado.
After your retreat, I invite you to stay and check out the high country of Colorado.
In the warm months you can spend a day visiting Rocky Mountain National Park and driving over the continental divide on Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous paved road in the United States. You’ll feel like you’re on top of the world and you just might spy elk, moose, or big horn sheep. Once on the other side, you can enjoy a fabulous lunch or dinner at scenic Grand Lake Lodge, perched on a mountainside overlooking Grand Lake.
On another day you can drive to Summit County and spend the morning canoeing, kayaking, or motor boating on Lake Dillon with the continental divide reflected on the water. Then, in the afternoon you can ride a gondola car to the top of your favorite ski resort. You’ll see incredible views of snow-capped peaks and once on top you’ll stroll through mountain meadows of wild flowers, just like the couple in the photo at the top of my home page. After that, you can have dinner on the banks of Gore Creek in Vail, a ski resort designed to look and feel just like a Swiss mountain village.
If you have a third day to spend, you can bicycle through Glenwood Canyon, experience the rush of white-water rafting on the Colorado river, and delight in the warmth of a good soak in the hot pool at Glenwood Springs.
During snow season you can downhill ski, cross country ski, or snowshoe at any of our top-rated mountain resorts including Vail, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and Keystone.There are lessons for beginners that include equipment and there are trails designed for novices.
You can also enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the streets of Breckenridge or a guided snowmobile tour through the Vail valley. And don’t forget ice skating at Keystone and snow tubing at the Frisco Adventure Park.
Whatever the season, the majesty and tranquility of the Colorado Rockies will inspire you and help restore your relationship.
In short, there’s no better setting than “colorful Colorado” for your private marriage counseling weekend intensive. As one couple said to friends after returning home from their marriage counseling retreat, “Dr. Lindsay was the right therapist for us and Colorado was the right place to heal our marriage.”
Who knows? Even though your marriage might be in crisis when you arrive, the progress you make could turn your time in Colorado into a romantic getaway, maybe even a second honeymoon!
