An hour and a half from the city of Grand Junction and tucked into the canyons that comprise the Uncompahgre Plateau in Mesa County, the five-star Gateway Canyons Resort is an award-winning stop on one of Colorado's most historic byways. Surrounded by red rock formations towering 1,000 feet high, this retreat features casitas, luxury rooms and hundreds of acres for exploration. If you're looking to stay in one place, this is it.

Travelers make their way to Gateway Canyons to explore the abundant nature, twisting roads and scenic byways. Thanks to the remote nature of the resort, you'll check in for your stay and check out of your responsibilities for the duration of your trip.

The weather in Gateway is beautiful every month of the year. Colorado receives approximately 300 days of sunshine per year, so even when there is a chill in the air, the sky is generally sparkling. Summers are mild, cool and dry; fall is crisp with changing leaves; and spring is bright and cool. Winter can be frosty with plenty of snow for winter sports. Thanks to its location on a plateau between canyons, Gateway is generally warm and mild in the spring and summer months. As with any Colorado vacation, it's best to pack layers for your visit.
