When Katherine Lee Bates traveled to Colorado Springs and laid eyes on the majestic Pikes Peak, she was inspired to pen "America the Beautiful." The scenery was that amazing.

Escape to the area with a trip to the Cheyenne Mountain Resort, a 217-acre natural wonderland set amid the Rockies. Stay for one ($104) or two ($197) nights in a standard room, with an upgrade to the next available room type, a daily $10 food-and-beverage credit, late 2 p.m. checkout, and included resort fee. Spacious accommodations are appointed with colorful décor, a balcony or patio, and thoughtful touches like Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, iPod docks, and free wireless Internet.

The most stunning amenities, however, await outside your door. Besides the living-postcard skylines, the resort boasts a 35-acre lake, indoor tennis courts, indoor pool, and state-of-the-art fitness center.

A short drive away, discover why geological showcase and public park Garden of the Gods lives up to its name, wander the Manitou Cliff Dwellings built 700 years ago by the Anasazi people, or stroll the twinkling, crystal-filled subterranean dreamscape known as the Cave of the Winds. Then, marvel at Pikes Peak, the second most visited mountain in the world (and the most popular in North America). If you're feeling ambitious, take a hike up the Barr Trail, where the Pikes Peak Marathon is held each summer—in 12 miles, you'll climb an altitude of 7,800 feet. Or, take a more relaxed trip up the mountain on the Pikes Peak Cog Railway, the highest train in the country.

When you've worked up an appetite, head back to the resort and settle in at the wood-beamed Mountain View Restaurant. Start with lemony asparagus bisque dolloped with basil pesto or blackened shrimp perched atop rich cheddar grits. Then, learn why Colorado is famous for its meats over locally raised bison short ribs rubbed with ancho chilies and espresso or the Thai-barbecue-style rack of lamb. Bates never ate here, but if she had, she probably would have added a line about food right after mentioning the "purple mountain majesties."

  • "The main lodge is an attractive setting for relaxing and dining, with a massive stone fireplace and thick wooden beams supporting the soaring ceiling. An elaborate Sunday brunch is delicious."
