At this 217-acre resort on the slopes of Cheyenne Mountain, superb swimming facilities (including an Olympic-size pool), a variety of tennis courts, and a Pete Dye championship golf course tempt you to remain on-property, despite the easy access to the high country. The main lodge is an attractive setting for relaxing and dining, with a massive stone fireplace and thick wooden beams supporting the soaring ceiling. An elaborate Sunday brunch is delicious. The guest rooms,
in eight separate buildings on the hillside, are simply but attractively decorated, with private balconies and iPod docks.
