Established in 1878 as a mining town for savvy prospectors looking for gold, Telluride is now a year-round haven for those in search of endless outdoor adventures.

With this week's Escape, explore the rich history of this high-end hamlet and stake your claim on a one-night stay for two in a Select Room at The Hotel Telluride, voted one of the world's best hotels in 2005 by Condé Nast Traveler readers ($199). Extend your stay longer than just one night by combining an unlimited number of vouchers.

Upon arrival, uncork a bottle of wine (included) while taking in the breathtaking mountain views from your private balcony or patio.

Each spacious, elegantly rustic room is appointed with two double beds or one king-size bed with plush down comforters and high thread-count sheets. And the bathroom is sumptuously outfitted with a marble countertop and oversize tub, plus earth-friendly Aveda bath products and cozy robes and slippers.

Along with cushy chairs and an antique writing desk that harkens back to Telluride's storied past, this modern boutique resort boasts high-tech amenities as well. Enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi, an iPod dock, and a flat-screen TV with full cable and HBO.

You'll be just a short gondola ride from Mountain Village, a jumping-off point for a day spent surveying the peaks on foot or horseback; the San Miguel River is an angler's dream during the spring and summer season, not to mention the numerous nearby lakes (and the outfitting companies that will take you there). Then set your sights on a hot stone or Gemstone Balancing massage at the posh on-site spa.

Map out the rest of your evening over snacks at the cozy on-site eatery, The Nook—serving dishes like mac 'n' cheese and Kobe beef sliders, plus wine, local brews, and handcrafted cocktails—before taking the complimentary shuttle into town, catching one of the Sunset Concert Series shows in Mountain Village, or checking out one of the annual film or music festivals.

Telluride's founding fathers had the foresight to know a goldmine when they saw it. Cash in on their nuggets of wisdom with this week's Escape to the San Juan Mountains.

  • "This thoroughly modern luxury hotel's gas-lit entry belies its young age, and its guest rooms are among the best you'll find in town... the superlative square footage and modern conveniences are sure to please 21st-century travelers."

    -- Frommer's
