Elk Mountain Resort  
Montrose, Colorado, United States

This hotel is self-contained, but if you want to venture out to see the sites, you can get to Telluride in about 1.5 hours, the Black Canyon in about 2 hours, and Ouray in about 1.5 hours. You can visit old mines, ski, fish, and tour various museums.

This hotel offers a wide array of activities, including a climbing wall, horseback riding (summer), snow mobiling and cross country skiing (winter), and a shooting range.

The restaurant is first class, with well trained staff prime food. The menu is diverse and the food fresh.
