This Rocky Mountains hideaway has gorgeous scenery and plenty of outdoor activities — cross-country skiing, horseback riding, and fishing, to name a few — but it’s the ultraluxe cabins, gourmet meals, and heated pool that keep guests coming back.
Go if: You want to pretend you’re outdoorsy, but you prefer fine dining and being pampered.
Insider tip: During the winter, try skijoring, a centuries-old Norwegian sport in which a horse pulls you through the snow as you balance on skis.
Best time to visit: When an artist workshop weekend is scheduled. Interact with and learn from masters of oil, watercolor, pastels, and sculpture and seek inspiration from the breathtaking scenery that surrounds you.
Rate: Starting at $1,050 per cabin per night, based on double occupancy.
