Photos, or didn’t happen.
That seems to sum up today’s travel culture, so it’s no wonder one TripAdvisor survey found that 83% of respondents rated “stunning views” as the most important factor in booking a vacation home.

You'd be forgiven for mistaking Il Podere's jaw-droppingly gorgeous vistas for the rolling hills of Tuscany -- that's exactly what the builders were hoping for. Set in the mountains of Cordillera, just outside of Beaver Creek, this home comes with 230 acres of pristine wilderness full of hiking, biking, and snowshoeing trails, and the views are equally amazing in every direction. See all photos and check availability here.
When the only way to get to the home is via a gondola that tops out at around 10,500 feet, you know the views are going to be good. Cabin on the Ridge is one of Telluride's highest properties, and even comes with a built-in oxygen system to create an environment more similar to an altitude of 6,000 feet. You'll want to check out all the photos of this breathtaking home here (or see booking availability).
Another Telluride favorite, this penthouse is set at the top of Mountain Village's famous "core," where all the shops, restaurants, and bars are located. From here, you can relax on your private terrace and look over the entire range, then step out your door for a night on the town. It's the best of both worlds. See photos and booking information here.
Leave it to Telluride to play host to some of the country's best mountain views. At the Folk Lorian, you'll have a picture window in the living room that looks out over the town's famous craggy ridge. Come winter, this is also an excellent ski-in, ski-out condo. Learn more here.

It's nearly impossible to take a bad photograph of Lake Tahoe's famous Carnelian Bay, so it's no wonder the views from Grandview Retreat are as pretty as any picture.
