Situated in the shadow of Pikes Peak, the pint-sized town of Green Mountain Falls, Colorado (population: 655) has been drawing summer visitors to its cool climate and majestic Rocky Mountain scenery for more than a century. Follow their lead and book a room at the newly opened Outlook Lodge: This handsome Victorian house, built in 1889, has been spruced up to suit the tastes of discerning travelers. Midcentury modern furnishings and original works by Marfa, Texas artist Jason Willaford fill the six guest rooms, and the communal living room features a 16-foot-long window bench overlooking the forest. Pack a bottle of wine, and get to know your fellow wayfarers ’round the fire ring. You’ll soon see why this area inspired that endearing ballad, “America the Beautiful.”
