We're in Love With These Swimming Pool Designs
Whether it's a snowy afternoon, an overcast spring morning, or a breezy summer night, a crystal-clear swimming pool in a mountain home will always beckon you to make a splash. We've found a handful of luxury waters that were designed with high-end relaxation and recreation in mind.
Dive right into these mountain-living swimming pools!
A POOL BUILT INTO A STEEP MOUNTAINSIDE
The luminous space is cantilevered over a stream and enclosed in glass on three sides; at the end of the pool, the glass extends below the water’s surface offering underwater views of the forest. “Swimming becomes a rich emotional experience,” Architect Greg Mottola says. “It’s almost like floating in space.”
A SWIMMING POOL WITH DRAMATIC PERSPECTIVE
A curved swimming pool with an infinity edge and a spa encircled with Colorado sandstone integrate seamlessly into the landscape. Grass growing between the pavers begins to emerge several feet back from the pool deck, an effect Albert says helps knit the pool terrace to the lawn.
A GRAND POOL FOR GUESTS
The grand pool house has an indoor pool and fireside dining, an outdoor spa, a fully equipped gym, an art loft, an executive office suite, a staging kitchen for catering, and guest bathrooms.
AN ARTFUL, JAPANESE LAP POOL
A private spa on the edge of Montana’s Whitefish Lake celebrates the serenity of the waterfront and the simplicity of Japanese bathhouses.
A PARK CITY POOL WITH A VIEW
A resistance/exercise pool, steam room, sauna, plunge pool, soaking tubs, and a room for a private masseuse all make this rustic mountain home feel like a personal ski resort and spa.

A HALF-MOON INFINITY POOL IN ASPEN
Outdoors, over 5,000 square feet of patio space features numerous comfortable seating areas and a wood-burning fireplace and fire pit, but you might just prefer to float in the 60-foot infinity pool as you gaze up at the nearby mountains.
