Romantic or Unique places to stay in Colorado

My husband and I will be travelling to Colorado the first 2 weeks in June. I'm trying to find a romantic or unique hotel/resort/cabin/lodge, but am having a little trouble. I wouldn't really want to spend more than $200/night. Nice scenery, a lit up outdoor pool perhaps, maybe a fire. We'll be in Denver, Colorado Springs, Mesa Verde area, Grand Junction, Glenwood Springs, Estes Park and Fort Collins. If anyone has a recommendation for a nice place to stay in one of those areas (or surrounding areas) I would be very grateful!

Thanks in advance! :)

Redstone is one I'm thinking. Just 45 minutes southeast of Glenwood Springs, it's right on the Crystal River and is a delightful small town. http://www.redstonecolorado.com/index.html

The Crystal Dreams B&B gets great reviews and the Redstone Castle is worth a tour.

Or the Redstone Inn is nice since it does have a pool. http://redstoneinn.thegilmorecollection.com/

for Colorado Springs the Broadmoor would be special but because it might exceed your budget (I haven't honestly checked their prices). You could always just take in some special dining opportunities on site and that would be their Sunday brunch for one.

Redstone was a great suggestion nearest to your Glenwood Springs option.

Unfortunately the Broadmoor is quite a bit more than $200. The least expensive rooms I see in June are $350+.

The Romantic Riversong in Estes Park may be an option if they aren't already booked in June. They have a couple of rooms under $200 per night. www.romanticriversong.com/guest_rooms.html

You might check out the cabins at Avalanche Ranch near Redstone, rustic but nice, (and within your budget) and lodging guests have access to the hot springs pools without extra charge.

If you were planning a night in Ouray, the lovely and historic Hotel Beaumont has hosted diverse guests, from Teddy Roosevelt to Chipeta (widow of Ute Chief Ouray), to Oprah Winfrey...and some of their rooms are within your budget. There are several other budget friendly but nice, romantic choices, such as the China Clipper Inn or the historic St. Elmo.

Hmmm...around Mesa Verde...did you want to stay in Durango? You might find something nice near Mancos or a Cortez B&B...I'll have to try to find the one a friend recommended.

Near Mesa Verde, I think the Abode at Willowtail Springs is a little above your price point unless they have a special, but you could look at the other B&Bs/Inns, such as Flagstone Meadows or Lost Canyon Lake Lodge.

Nearer Durango, the Blue Lake Ranch B&B is one I've always wanted to visit. The price point would be close, but you could check, especially if not a weekend.
