Aspen MeadowsNature lovers will enjoy the tucked-away location of Aspen Meadows. Set on 40 acres, just on the edge of downtown Aspen, the resort is surrounded by hiking trails, and all 98 suites have Rocky Mountain views. The resort was designed in a classic Bauhaus style. Rooms are incredibly spacious, each with a living, working, and sleeping area and floor-to-ceiling windows. Design nerds will appreciate the collectible furnishings and decor, including IDCA posters and Bertoia chairs. The resort is home to the Aspen Institute and is well-equipped to host large groups and meetings. It’s also a popular retreat for families and active travelers who can take advantage of tennis courts, an outdoor lap pool, and one of Aspen’s best health clubs. Guests should set aside time to browse the exhibits at the on-site Paepcke Gallery.
