A Getaway Small Business Saturday Guide

The spirit of Small Business Saturday is so important to us here at Getaway—after all, the greatest beauty of our Outposts can be found in the towns in which they’ve been built.

Shopping small allows you to keep things simple, support local artists and craftspeople, and find unique gifts that you can give to your loved ones during the holidays – not to mention helps build special memories for you and your loved ones.

Here are some of our favorite small businesses near each of our Outposts.

Getaway Beaver Creek

Two Smart Cookies

You can find us at this local favorite for nearly every meal – from grabbing our coffee in the morning, to a sweet treat in the afternoon. It’s only a 5 minute drive from the Outpost, and there’s always something delicious cooking. Friendly staff greets you as you walk through the door for a caffeine fix, a delicious salad, or a baked good.
