If your ideal vacation involves hard-core chilling out (i.e. not doing much of anything), you’ll certainly be comfortable at The Little Nell — taking in the scenery is enough to keep you occupied. But you’d be missing out on all the activities the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, and Aspen, have to offer. Aspen is a recreational mecca, and its residents are obsessed with staying active. To that end, The Little Nell has taken a cue from the locals with its Adventure Guides program, which takes you on outings like fly fishing, hiking a 14,000-foot peak (called a Fourteener in Colorado parlance) and mountain biking. In the winter, the luxury hotel offers everything from heli-skiing to private moonlit dinners atop Aspen Mountain, where you can indulge in outstanding farm-fresh food and sommelier-picked wines.
