Last Perfect Places

Think nothing is perfect? These five Colorado gems will change you mind.

December 2002

With Colorado's overwhelming growth, it's getting harder to find getaways that aren't overrun with people - locals, newcomers, and tourists alike. We set out to find locations that were not only perfect but were also free of crowds. We looked high and low for special Colorado spots that were flawless - from the views and lodging to service and atmosphere.

And just what did we uncover? From a high-end hotel where the staff is always two steps ahead to a tucked away guest ranch, we think these five spots define the word perfection.
