Enjoy the timeless traditions and treasured recipes with two new cookbooks from The Broadmoor and Sea Island resorts

The coming together of two privately held iconic resorts under one owner is nearly unheard of in today’s hospitality industry. Yet when it was announced that The Broadmoor in mountainous Colorado Springs and Sea Island in coastal Georgia would be united under the shared ownership of the Anschutz family, it made perfect sense.

Both properties share a long and distinguished history as luxury resorts, and both have been recognized with numerous Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond awards for their longstanding commitment for upholding values of excellence. Each offers guests an unparalleled experience steeped in tradition, while also continually enhancing its offerings to serve today’s discerning luxury travelers better.

“While the diversity of the two settings—the Atlantic Ocean and Rocky Mountains—creates uniquely different guest experiences, what truly bonds these legendary resorts together is an unwavering commitment to excellence,” said Steve Bartolin, Chairman of The Broadmoor and President of The Broadmoor–Sea Island Company. “The Broadmoor and Sea Island combine two of the very few remaining independent resorts left in the world that, throughout their storied histories, have set the standards for excellence in both service and facilities.”

Now guests can enjoy a taste of the resorts in their own home with two new books—“The Broadmoor: Spirit of the West” and “Sea Island: Soul of the South,” both by Sarah Anschutz Hunt— that capture the unique flavor and lifestyle that make each resort one-of-a-kind.

Each chapter is carefully curated to include the events and traditions that are held steadfast to this day. The legendary stories, enhance the recipes, as they recount the locations and eras of some of the most iconic dishes shared both yesterday and today. The cookbook reflects back to places like Rotten Log Hollow, which was the place to be for a barbeque in the 1950s-1970s. It may be a location of the past, but the quirky menus and the cowboy sing-a-longs with the tall tales shared around the campfire will not be forgotten. These dinners, showcasing the well marbled rib-eyes sizzling over an open flame, were held twice a week during the warm summer evenings with refreshing drinks and other favorites featured in this set of books.

Segueing into authentic Colorado experiences has never been easier with the additions of The Broadmoor’s Wilderness Experience Properties: Cloud Camp, The Ranch at Emerald Valley and The Fly Fishing Camp. If you haven’t booked your next vacation to experience these boutique resorts, the collection of recipes will, at the very least, give you a taste of what you will enjoy when you do! Each section leads you through the colorful tales and delicious delights highlighted at each property.
