The Faessler family, who own the Sonnenalp, got their start in the hospitality industry in Bavaria, and this luxury hotel honors the aesthetic with a white-gabled facade and hand-carved pine furniture from Germany. The location is central in the village (and a five-minute walk to the Vista Bahn lift), and the heated indoor/outdoor pool fronts Gore Creek, which rambles by the resort. Most of the 137 rooms—from studios to two-bedroom suites—have a gas fireplace and a spacious bathroom with heated marble floors. Ludwig's, the in-house restaurant, serves Colorado-inspired fare with a Bavarian accent: One classic interpretation is the pistachio-crusted lamb chop with shank strudel in star-anise–blackberry sauce.

Appeared in the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List, a directory of the world's best hotels and resorts, in 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005
