Perched On A Mountaintop Overlooking Vail Valley - Edwards, CO

OK… it’s not what you would think of as a fishing lodge, but The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera is also home to an Orvis Fly-Fishing School (and in general is a very cool place). Perched on a mountaintop overlooking the Vail Valley and western Colorado’s Sawatch Range, the 56-room lodge wins awards for everything and I could have just as easily put it in a blog about Luxury Retreats with Snow, Spa, Food, Service… you get the idea. It’s a year-round thing. So… your boss can fish and everyone else can fish or not fish. (www.cordilleralodge.com)
