Taylor River Lodge
Scale of 90-100
This fly-fishing camp is set on an 8-acre estate a 35-minute drive from the town of Crested Butte. The six one-bedroom log cabins are decorated with Moroccan rugs, fluffy down comforters and headboards upholstered with kilim rugs. There are also two large homes, each comprising two suites, bunkrooms, kitchens and fireplaces. The atmospheric central lounge houses a horseshoe-shaped bar, and the indoor-outdoor restaurant offers multicourse menus that showcase regionally sourced ingredients. The property also has a bathhouse with a saltwater pool and hot tub, a fitness and spa facility, a game cabin and a mile of semiprivate river. Other activities include guided hikes and float trips on the nearby Gunnison River. This retreat is seasonally open from late May through mid-October.

A dearth of electrical outlets in our otherwise very well-equipped cabins.
