Awards and Accolades

The Rusty Parrot has been defining the spirit of true Western luxury—without ostentation or pretension—for over 20 years. A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the Rusty Parrot has received numerous awards and been featured in national and international publications.

Mountain Living magazine honored The Wild Sage as a "Top Mountain Restaurant" (2008), while Forbes Life recently noted the "small is beautiful philosophy" of both the lodge and our Body Sage Spa, complimenting us on our "focus on quality and customized personal service."

New York Magazine gave us a nod as a great place for a honeymoon, while Hitched Magazine ranked us one of the "10 Romantic Resorts to Ski & Stay." And The L.A. Times touted our "Girls' Getaway" package as a chance to "get in touch with your inner princess."
