Although Aspen is best known as a winter playground, a whole new world opens up with the mountain wildflowers. We enjoy a micro-climate all our own, where the skies seem just that bit bluer and the air that bit more inviting—even by Colorado standards. Visit our Adventure Center to learn about all your Five-Star options, like Jeep tours and fly fishing trips (including those in our custom-built boat), and they’ll be happy to make any arrangements. From excursions to exclusive programs available only to our guests, summer at The Little Nell, we like to say, is a riot of the senses.
