This once-dilapidated 1890s enclave has been authentically rebuilt as a gracious wilderness retreat in a peaceful box canyon midway between Aspen and Telluride, overlooked by some of the highest peaks in the Rockies. Accommodations consist of four cozy cabins and a two-story log guesthouse with five bedrooms. Wonderful River House rooms, situated on a high bank above a tumbling stream, are ideal for families. The main lodge evokes the Old West with a massive stone fireplace, leather sofas and a fine array of Native American artifacts. Excellent cuisine is served in a fireside dining room and canvas-topped open-air pavilion; also hot tubs and billiard room. Spa, horseback riding, guided hikes and superb fly-fishing for trout on streams, ponds and nearby Gunnison River. Closed November to end of May.
