Top choice resort in Ridgway
Image by

This Southwestern adobe-style complex is a swanky, upscale lodge dedicated to erasing your everyday cares. Rooms feature hand-painted Mexican tiles, rough-hewn log beds and decks with a view. There are wonderful public areas on the property.

Have a read in the Great Room or a chat in the solarium, or head out to the hot tubs on the property for a quiet soak. The on-site spa features treatments developed by the Utes and daily yoga classes. Check Chipeta’s website for ski, soak and stay deals, where you can ride the slopes at Telluride, soak in the hot springs pools in Ouray and spend the night in Ridgway.
