In the heart of Vail Village, this slopeside resort, which opened in early 2011, has a “homey, welcoming atmosphere yet is still so elegant.” Grounds include a mountain-view pool, fire pits, and hot tubs, while guest rooms are “made to feel like the house you dream of,” with custom furnishings and stone-floor bathrooms. “The world-class art displayed throughout is more than reason enough for a visit.” The bar Frost serves tapas and a “remarkable selection” of scotch and tequila. Inspired by Napa, Block 16’s menu is seasonal and employs ingredients from Vail Valley, with wines from around the world. “The caring staff treated us like royalty from the second we arrived.” Kids can take cooking lessons in the resort’s kitchens.
