We all kinda wish we could have a second home in the mountains. A place to kick back or crash, store some gear, and maybe even shoot off a few emails between ski runs or after a hike. We can’t help you with real estate, but we just might have the next best thing. Denver, meet Gravity Haus, a Breckenridge coworking community that is as focused on wellness as it is on function.
Gravity Haus was born from the brain of Galvanize founder Jim Deters. The creative entrepreneur clearly has a pulse on what people are looking for at the intersection of work, wellness, community, and hospitality. So, why not put them all under the same roof? He did, and this space seems to have thought of everything.
Sitting at the base of Peak 9 in Breck, Gravity Haus is setting out to be the ultimate social house for the modern adventurer, no matter the age or ability level. The wellness-focused space, which opened to the public December 9, 2019, combines Starter Haus, a fully-equipped coworking space, with gear storage, social programming, eats and drinks, expert-guided excursions, and lodging on site.
But it’s not all about productivity and play. Gravity Haus also is a place to refuel and recharge. Get ready to veg out and zen out at the mountain-side Japanese-inspired onsen with four hot tubs, one cold tub, and one dry sauna. Train or recover at Dryland Sports, the high-tech fitness center with a full recovery studio (and NormaTec compression sleeves!). You can also grab some healthy eats at Cabin Juice, a restaurant for health nuts and foodies that serves nutrient-dense eats to fuel and satisfy. You’ll then have the option to top it all off with a cup from Unravel Coffee, a sustainably-focused coffee shop already serving Southeast Denver.
And if you’re looking to stay the night, know that this Haus has rooms, too. They’re upscale, but true to the Gravity Haus goal of being accessible to all, they are designed to be shared if you want (hello, queen bunk beds!). Think Airbnb meets hostel, as the Gravity Haus team explained to Fitt.
Want a little try-before-you-buy experience before heading up to the mountains? Check out Denver’s own Dryland Sports and Unravel Coffee (who are actually neighbors), which serves as the inspiration and blueprint for their Breck counterparts.
And looking forward, sales director Dave Northrop told us Breck is just the beginning. Jim and his team plan to replicate this model in ski and surf towns around the world. But for now, they’re staying close to home, slopeside, as they scope out their next properties: Vail and Winter Park. Look out for Vail Mountain Lodge and The Sundowner Motel to be reborn as this innovative mountain social house in late 2020.
Breck, Vail, or Winter Park—wherever you visit—Gravity Haus is guaranteed to be the most wholesome aprés around.
