Booking a trip to Breckenridge but need a guide on where to stay? Say no more. The Breck team has got your back when it comes to the low-down scoop on where to stay based on location and amenities. Our insider experts say, ditch that rental car and stay close to all the in-town action at one of these three properties.
Brand new to the base of Peak 9 is Gravity Haus, a social haus for the modern adventurer and athlete. Throw out all preconceptions of your traditional social club and standard hotel. Gravity Haus is a breath of fresh air when it comes to providing an authentic travel experience tailored to your style.
No two groups travel the same, which is why Gravity Haus created a “have it your way” lodging option. Need bunks for the kiddos or a master suite with a separate space for multiple people in the crew? Say goodbye to the old regiment of 2 queen or king options in this 60-room haus and hello to a lodging configuration that meets your needs.
Unwind in the comfort of Gravity Haus’ ample amenities or get involved with their local programming and backcountry excursions. Check out all the Haus has to offer below.
Guests at Gravity Haus can bop downstairs to the hotel’s on-site sustainable coffee shop, Unravel, to caffeinate and properly fuel up for an action-packed day of adventure. Unravel will roast beans in the cafe and serve your cuppa in a glass container that you can take with you! Bring your glass back over the course of your stay and receive a discount with each additional coffee purchase.
If you’re a hustler and need a place to get emails or projects done in-between runs, head to Gravity Haus’ coworking space, Starter Haus – your clients or teammates won’t even know you’re on vacation in Breck.
Save space in the car or exorbitant airline fees to transport your gear. Gravity Haus’ on-site Haus Quiver offers the highest quality gear so you can experience a demo day, every day. You’ll find Icelantic, K2 and Never Summer in the artillery – sound like something you’re into?
At the end of a killer day in the Rockies, guests can replenish with good-for-you-grub at Gravity Haus’ restaurant, Cabin Juice, or stroll one block down to bustling Main Street with dozens of dining options.
Gravity Haus will also feature Dryland Sports, a training facility to prepare athletes and adventurers in the gym, for their undertakings in the backcountry or on the trails. Catch some air on the in-haus supertramp and practice for those tricks in the park.
For those traveling from afar and need gear rentals, Haus Quiver, the on-site rental shop will get you fitted from head to toe.
Just when you think this new kid on the block can’t get any more epic…it does. Enjoy added bonuses like valet parking, a Japanese-inspired onsen spa along the Blue River, and a Backcountry NOC to join backcountry excursions.
