Grand Timber Lodge Property Info

Letter from the Assistant General Manager

As winter is ending, spring will soon be in full bloom! May is a precious time in Breckenridge, when the town winds down and the fun ramps up. Restaurants begin offering their specials with “two for ones” and dining passport promotions. In addition, as the lines in the stores and around town ease up you can begin to take advantage of walking and biking around.

All the way across the county at the base of Loveland Pass you will find a favorite spot of locals, Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort. Although all ski resorts (except for Breckenridge) have turned off their chairlifts, the Basin is still in full send mode and continues to host a generous number of events. Every Saturday during the month of May they have their Shakin’ at the Basin Spring Concert Series. Spend the day on the slopes and end at the base with a little après paired with some fine Colorado tunes. For all you beer lovers out there, on May 26 they will host their 18th annual Festival of the Brewpubs. Treat yourself to a Sunday Funday of beer sampling, live music, and food stations galore.

In town with the kiddos this month? Why not have some fun digging for gold and learning about Breckenridge’s rich mining history? Country Boy Mine on French Gulch Road is officially open! They are open Wednesday through Sunday, offering mine tours, gold panning, petting the burros, shooting the chute, and exploring the mine site. This is a unique activity that your family will never forget.

Wrap up the end of May and ring in the summer with Breck Creates’ most memorable annual event, WAVE: Light + Water + Sound. This free four-day interactive festival held along the Blue River Plaza displays temporary art installations, musical performances, and screenings all based on the theme of light, water, and sound. See the artwork of international, national, and local artists. Bring your imagination to life and release your inner child in this one-of-a-kind Breckenridge event! For more event information and a full schedule, visit gobreck.com.

Every spring and fall we shut down each building for a full week to perform some of the larger projects. During this period, we always perform some routine tasks, too, including deep cleaning the rooms, doing an extensive engineering inspection and preventative maintenance, having professional carpet cleaners clean all hallway and room carpets, and having window cleaners clean every window, to name just a few. In addition, this spring we have the following extra projects to keep Grand Timber in tip-top shape:

  • Buildings 1 & 2 are getting new carpet and paint in all the rooms and common areas.
  • Building 4 is getting new windows and balcony doors. This will be a two-part project, with the second half to be completed next spring.
  • Buildings 5-8 will be getting new bedroom furniture. We started this project last spring with buildings 1-4 and are finishing it up now.
  • All rooms are getting new smoke and CO detectors.

What’s Happening at the Boot

The Stinky Boot Salon is happy to announce the following changes:

  • Daily pool service is now offered at the Building 5 pool and hot tubs.
  • New outdoor furniture will be coming soon to provide even more seating options.
  • The new banquet room is open (right now at no cost for the room, just catering) so people can throw family reunions, birthday parties, baby showers, receptions, and more!
  • New menu items including dinner options and specials are coming soon.
  • Daily lunch specials.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions on how to make Grand Timber Lodge a better place for you and your family. You may always send ideas to jstuhr@grandtimber.com for consideration!
