Five Cozy Ways to Enjoy the Season at Lakehouse and Beyond

‘Tis the season in Denver, and here at Lakehouse, we’re ready to cozy up into the holiday spirit. Winter weather, brilliant light displays and festive gift markets are the name of the game. As the temps get colder and our drinks spicier, we’re highlighting the coziest ways to enjoy the season.

Taste The Season

Lakehouse residents need only to head downstairs and around the corner to enjoy delicious seasonal treats at superfood spot Whole Sol Blend Bar. This season, they’ve got a “Pumpkin Spice Bol” featuring a pumpkin-mango spice base topped with figs, pumpkin seeds & granola, and drizzled with pumpkin spice Granola Butter. And if you’re just looking for a cozy drink, order up a pumpkin spice or pumpkin chai latte.

Take A Dip

A soak in Lakehouse’s hot tub is a treat year-round, but especially in cold weather. Let the warmth soothe your body and soul as you take in views of Sloan’s Lake and the surrounding treetops. Dip in during the day or in the evening when dazzling stars and nearby city lights illuminate the sky. Just the idea of a winter soak warms us to our toes.

Lose Yourself in the Dazzling Lights

What’s a holiday season without majestic evenings immersed in brilliant light displays? This time of year, Denver Zoo is transforming into a winter wonderland — complete with over two million sparkling LED lights and nightly ice carving. And outdoor animal viewing will be available for cold-weather species such as Amur tiger, Bactrian camel, Przewaskli’s horse and most of their pachyderms.

Drop By the Mile High Tree

Denver’s new Mile High Tree will be putting on a dazzling music and lights show starting November 19th. Drop by 16th Street Mall to take in this popular annual holiday light installation. The tree will be lit from 5-10 p.m. until January 1, 2022, and visitors can enjoy a selection of festive songs timed to the tree’s exciting light displays.

Shop Holiday Markets

Embrace the winter spirit by paying a visit to the 2nd Annual Après Ski Holiday Market curated by American Field. Held in Downtown Denver’s Dairy Block Alley—just a 10-minute drive from Lakehouse—this market transports you to a European ski village, featuring a variety of vendors offering clothing, home goods and more. Shoppers can also enjoy food and drink specials and a bustling lineup of holiday entertainment, including performances by the Jingle Belles and visits from Santa Claus, himself.
