Collective VailLaunched in 2015, Collective Vail sits on 1,000 acres of working ranchland in the Central Rockies about 25 miles from Vail village. Six spacious tents, outfitted with antler chandeliers and wood-burning stoves, surround a central lodge that serves a menu of game and seasonal produce sourced from nearby ranches. When guests aren’t horseback riding or joining a cattle drive, there’s an on-site winery that can arrange tastings of small lot wine. The camp is part of a collection of low-impact, high-end retreats in picturesque landscapes, all with impermanent structures made from minimal material.
