Rocky Mountains, Colorado

For a high-altitude getaway with a dash of spooky history, book a plush cabin at Dunton Hot Springs (across the mountain from Telluride in the Rockies), which was the site of a 19th-century ghost mining town and is also home to five heavenly sulfur-free hot springs for soaking. You’ll have a slew of authentic Wild West outings to choose from: snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, fly fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking, heli-skiing and even dogsledding, depending on the time of year. And really, what’s more romantic than a teepee?
