Everything about our stay at the Blake was perfect. The hotel and rooms are beautiful, salt water heated swimming pool and two hot tubs offered plenty of relaxation options for our family of four after a day of skiing. The ski valet is amazing, just grab skis and stroll about 20

Thanks for your question Sonali. We are surrounded by wilderness. Most of the land that you can see from the hotel is Forest Service land and is full of wildlife. Bears and other big predators are shy and really hard to see even though they are in the area. If you have a specific question about doing some guided hiking don't hesitate to let me know.

Good morning Kathleen, The Spa is open to everyone and anyone! Please call 575.776.5335 and make an appointment. My personal favorite is the hot stone massage followed by 15 minutes in the steam room. Hope to see you soon.

Good morning Bobbie, Unfortunately we don't offer gift cards at this time. If you know the dates of the stay we could make a pre-paid reservation for you but we can't do a gift card for a certain amount without a reservation date. I hope this helps, At you service, Eduardo

Good morning Maria. Unfortunately the outdoor pool and hot tubs aren't open yet. Once all the snow melts the construction crew will be able to finish some safety aspects on the roof and the pool and hot tubs will open some time this summer. We do have steam rooms and a wonderful Spa and Wellness Center available to all our guests. Thanks for your interest on The Blake and we hope to see you soon.

"we have only ever stayed on the first floor (with our dog) in the pet friendly rooms and they are very nicely appointed."
"Ask if the room faces the ski slope and base activity or the mountain (includes parking area). Both are good just depends on what you like."
"Fourth floor rooms offer best views"
"Make sure to spend some time exploring this hotel."
"I liked our room facing the first lift to see how crowded it was and away from the pool and hot tub areas."
