The best guest rooms in the West

Just in time for your holiday travels, we’ve rounded up some of the high country’s most stylish guest rooms, from creekside tents to slopeside suites. Discover three of our favorites here, and visit mountainliving.com to find five more. The Inn of the Five Graces, Santa Fe, NM The vibe: Your own little Taj Mahal

The inn’s 24 fanciful guest rooms brim with treasures: hand-painted Tibetan ceilings and Afghani beams, rich carpets, and hand-carved headboards and marble screens. The “Lapis” room (pictured) features a bathroom covered in floor-to-ceiling tile mosaics by owner Sylvia Seret. fivegraces.com

The Saint Regis Resort Aspen, Aspen, CO The vibe: The Breakers-meets-the-slopes

Tasked with reinvigorating this classic Aspen hotel, interior designer Lauren Rottet imagined what John Jacob Astor would have designed in Aspen during the Gilded Age. The result: guest suites that would feel right at home in a 19th-century mountain manor—save for a piece of contemporary art here and a bit of red leather there. stregisaspen.com

Meadowood, St. Helena, CA The vibe: Summer camp for grownups

Meadowood‘s look is one part Napa Valley estate, one part Hamptons cottage. Comfy beds are dressed with snow-white linens, bathrooms are clad with white marble, and even the vaulted ceilings’ exposed beams are painted a crisp cloud-like hue. Some rooms offer built-in window seats and fireside nooks, and all have private porches in the trees. meadowood.com
