The crisp morning air of early fall is knocking on the door of late summer. The aspens have begun to show shades of yellow. Southwest Colorado is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life while taking in the colors of nature and unwinding.
The luxury townhomes of Rio Grande Vacation Rentals in South Fork, Colorado provide the perfect base-camp for your fall escape. Grab your camera, download the free Silverthread app, and jump in your car for a drive along the Silverthread Scenic Byway, one of twenty-six in the state. You’ll be able to capture the beauty of the aspen trees and if you’re lucky you may even catch glimpses of wildlife. Check out this video to see for yourself. The Silverthread Byway connects three of Colorado’s quaintest towns; South Fork, Creede, and Lake City. Each of these towns has countless trails to hike which also provides you with another option for enjoying the fall colors and for those of you that are into ATV’s each town also has outfitters which rent ATV’s along with information pertaining to the ATV trails and town regulations. Let our Home Concierge Services help you work out the details for your colorful fall getaway.
With the onset of fall, it’s hard not to think that the snow will be here before we know it. What does this mean? Skiing. Snowboarding. Snowshoeing. Sledding. The list goes on. Have you thought about skiing at Wolf Creek, home of “The Most Snow In Colorado”? Their tentative date to open for the 2017-2018 season is November 3. This, of course, depends on weather conditions and the amount of natural snow. Nevertheless, it’s not too early to make sure your gear is tuned up and ready to go when old man winter makes his grand presence known.
Each Thanksgiving weekend, the Town Of Creede, hosts a Chocolate Festival. This is an opportunity for you to judge various homemade chocolate treats made by the local businesses (and get a head start on your Christmas shopping). Creede is a short drive up the Silverthread from South Fork. Tickets may be purchased from the Creede/Mineral County Chamber of Commerce/Visitor’s Center.
Our townhomes feature open floor plans, fully stocked kitchens, and soaking tubs. Our two-bedroom townhomes are ideal for those looking for a romantic getaway in southwest Colorado. Large groups will find our three, four, and five-bedroom vacation rentals comfortable and spacious. With rates starting as low as $200 per night, contact US today to book your stay and ask about discounted lift tickets to Wolf Creek Ski Area.
