This low-rise mountain resort has bleached mahogany, terra-cotta, and leather elements that make for a lighter feel than the typical lodge. Rooms in neutral colors have flat-screen TVs and gas fireplaces. Staff impress: "When my luggage was lost, the concierge got me everything I needed in exactly the brand I requested." Dine on Colorado lamb with preserved lemon and spring pea spaetzle at Montagna, "the best restaurant in town."
