Devil's Thumb Ranch

Tabernash, CO

The luxe-yet-cozy 6,000-acre ranch has all the bells and whistles–sweeping mountain views, a great spa, and every outdoor activity you can imagine. But what sets it apart from other beloved Rockies resorts is that you really can get away here for a weekend: It's only an hour and a half from Denver. Your overstuffed chair by the fire and deep soaking tub can make it hard to leave your room, so if there's one activity that you do, make sure it's the evening sleigh ride with a "real-life cowboy." $250/$345 cabin, $199/$250 lodge, $90/$150 bunkhouse; devilsthumbranch.com
