Even without its A-list Hollywood pedigree, Robert Redford’s Sundance Mountain Resort has a lot going for it. First, there’s the setting: 5,000 acres on the slopes of the Wasatch Range, with views to 11,750-foot Mt. Timpanogos. Second, there’s the sheer number of different outdoor activities you can do here in summer: hike, fly-fish, ride horses, mountain bike. If any of the above leaves your muscles sore, head to the resort’s spa for a couples’ massage. Guest rooms are stylishly rustic; the resort’s signature restaurant, The Tree Room, is among the best in the Rockies.
Why it’s a great couples’ getaway: Sundance makes it easy to mix and match activities. Two of you want to go hiking, fine; two of you want to take a watercolor class at Sundance’s art studio, fine. You can all meet up afterward for cocktails at the Owl Bar, as ornately Old Western as you could possibly wish for. From $269, restaurant $$$; .
