Golden Discount for Leaf Peepers
September 12 – October 27
Do you enjoy viewing the golden aspens, the red scrub oak, and the various russets on the mountainsides? If you want to do a fall foliage tour extraordinaire, do it for two or more days, Sunday through Thursday, between September 12 and October 27 and get a golden 20% discount on lodging at the Bross Hotel B&B. The Bross is centrally located for day trips to McClure Pass, the Grand Mesa, the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, and Kebler Pass, reputed to have the largest stands of aspen in the world.

Celebrate a Victorian Thanksgiving
November 23 – 26
What can be more romantic than spending Thanksgiving at an historic hotel in one of America’s small towns? And, I’ll make you a deal. Help decorate the Victorian Bross Hotel B&B for Christmas and I’ll provide Thanksgiving dinner. Plan to arrive Wednesday evening or by mid-afternoon on Thanksgiving Day. Dinner will be served at 6 p.m. Friday we’ll get out the decorations and you can choose those you’d like to use to transform the hotel into a Victorian masterpiece. That evening we’ll watch the Thanksgiving parade in Crawford and the children can speak to Santa about their Christmas list. There will be one or more Christmas bazaars/craft shows on Saturday so you can do some Christmas shopping. Cost of the weekend depends upon the number of nights you stay — $110/night for single occupancy and $135/night for double occupancy, plus tax.
Baroque Music Festival
October 21 – 22
A weekend of Baroque Music is a great way to kick off the winter concert season. Join this Blue Sage festival with a two-night stay at the Bross Hotel and a fine Paonia dinner and you’ve got yourself a winning weekend. Friday evening Grammy-nominated harpsichordist Jory Vinikour will delight with Bach’s Goldberg Variations. On Saturday he’ll be joined by Ann Marie Morgan on cello for an evening of traditional baroque dances and sonatas by Rameau and Couperin. At a champagne brunch on Saturday the artists will discuss the history of music performance in the age of enlightenment while giving you an up close view of their period instruments.
The all-inclusive cost for the weekend is $345 for single occupancy and $510 for double occupancy. Included: 2 nights and 2 breakfasts at the Bross Hotel B&B, 2 concerts at the Blue Sage Center for the Arts, Saturday brunch, and a gift card for dinner at one of Paonia’s fine restaurants.
Voices of the Piano
Susan Ellinger, concert pianist and artistic director of the Blue Sage Center for the Arts Concert Series, will play two concerts that demonstrate how composers and pianists speak through their music. On Friday evening she’ll play the courtly music of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven during the Age of Enlightenment. The seductive melodies of Schubert, Chopin and Brahms will transport you to the century of longing on Saturday evening. Stay at the Bross Hotel B&B, attend one or both concerts and get a discount on lodging. Cost per evening (lodging and concert) is $130 for single occupancy and $180 for double occupancy.
