Named one of the top 10 ice rinks on the West Coast by Sunset, Evergreen Lake House’s 8 acres of zamboni-polished ice shimmer atop a 40-acre lake situated a short drive from Denver. Visitors lace up provided skates and slice figure-8s or spontaneous thank-you notes into underfoot glaciers before thawing extremities with a steaming cup of cocoa inside Evergreen Lake House’s rink-side lodge (not included with today’s Groupon). Nestled between snowcapped peaks, the frosty enclosure splits off into a family rink and 10 sections reserved for perfecting slap shots or private events. For additional fees, patrons can rent props for rousing rounds of broomball or figure-skated renditions of Macbeth and capitalize on the expertise of an onsite skate sharpener.
Evergreen Lake House
For those who dream of kicking back at a cozy log cabin as smoke puffs out of a stone fireplace and a crystal clear lake reflects the surrounding pines and mountains, the Evergreen Lake House is an ideal destination. The 5,000-square-foot building resides on 55 acres of park district land and hosts seasonal activities and events. An immense stone fireplace in the great room lends itself to wedding photos, while the lake lends itself to summertime activities, and safely testing how far a homemade catapult can fling you. Visitors navigate the placid waters on canoes and paddleboats or savor a sunrise during an early morning fishing trip. An observation boardwalk provides stunning views and a 1.3-mile trail offers safe passage to joggers, and bikers. When the lake freezes over in winter, skating season begins and the 1930s boat house becomes a place to warm up and debate whether Herbert Hoover invented the vacuum cleaner.
