My wife and I attended a

My wife and I attended a Nat'l Wildlife Conference in Estes Park three or four years ago. It is in a beautiful park-like setting with good accommodations and a lot to see and do in the area -- hiking, wildlife viewing, bird watching, and some historic sites to visit. There is a camp ground nearby with a trout-filled stream running through it for those who would like to "rough-it" and enjoy some fresh-caught fish for their meals.

Come hell or high water.

Come hell or high water. Literally, I have been dreaming of being able to attend a knitting retreat. This would be perfect!

I have been to Winterpark, and it is great, not been to the other 2 as far as I know. I am enamored of the mountains though, so any of them would be fantastic.

My brother got married at YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, and I've been there several times for conferences. It's an outstanding venue. Love to do a knitting retreat there. Depending on dates, of course.

I can't imagine a more beautiful place to sit around with group of guys and knit/spin/crochet.

Just magical...I like to taste-test as many retreats as I can, and I didn't get a chance to "taste" the Midwest retreat or the New Zealand one...hopefully the Rockies will get tasted.

They all sound very interesting. It is up there in the mountains and people will probably have a wonderful view of the countryside. The 3 look like great places for a retreat
