It wouldn’t be Top Ten Aspen hotels without a bunch of charming mountain chalet-style resorts on the list!

We are betting you’ve never been to a rustic-chic condo resort in the heart of the mountains, so we had to include The Gant on our Top Ten Aspen hotels!

3. Mountain Chalet
A place where the beer flows like wine, where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano: we’re talking about a little place called Aspen (For you Dumb and Dumber fans).
