The Broadmoor's Cloud Camp, a luxury property atop Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is available for a special private buyout at Thanksgiving and Christmas. In an era where seclusion and space are paramount (and families long to gather together), both dates are expected to book quickly.
One family or group takes over Cloud Camp’s entire lodge and its seven rooms, catered to by The Broadmoor’s Cloud Camp staff throughout their stay. The remote retreat is truly reflective of its name – in the clouds – on a mountaintop at roughly 10,000 feet with 360-degree views of nearby Pikes Peak and Colorado Springs below. In terms of activities, think family games and crafts by the fire and grand dinners in the lodge, hiking, snowman building, quiet winter walks, wine tasting, cooking classes, and cookie baking. The culinary staff can even create cherished family recipes, bringing that extra holiday magic that can only be experienced through taste memory. The experience can be completely tailored to a family’s own holiday traditions and décor. The three or four-night stay starts at $40,000 (all-inclusive).
In addition to Cloud Camp, The Broadmoor also offers residential-style private accommodations at the main resort campus – below the clouds – for holiday dates.
The Brownstones have impressive mountain views, gourmet kitchens, three car garages, and four floors of space to spread out, while the Cottages have between one and eight bedrooms, large outdoor patios and fireplaces, as well as nearby meandering creeks. The elegant 12,000 square foot Estate House is another option for families or groups, boasting 1930s décor with an opulent dining room and seating for up to 16 guests.
And after more than 102 years in operation, The Broadmoor certainly knows how to bring the holiday cheer, even in 2020. The resort has plans for its annual over-the-top gingerbread creation, sparkling winter lights, and an assortment of cooking demonstrations and holiday entertainment.
