Thirteen properties have been added to Kindred Resorts & Hotels’ portfolio across North America, including three in the U.S. Mountain West. The collection now includes 60 independent hotels and resorts each with their own distinct vibe and a focus on the group and meetings market.

Located in the heart of Mountain Village in Telluride, Colorado, the full-service Madeline Hotel and Residences has 4,000 square feet of meeting and event space to serve groups of 20 to 200 guests. The 14,000-squarefoot Telluride Conference Center, with performance and concert space, state-of-the-art video conferencing and more, is conveniently located next door.

Situated at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and only steps from the ski lifts of Squaw Valley, PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn in North Lake Tahoe, California, has 56 guest rooms and suites with an event space that holds up to 200. Packages such as the Corporate Food & Wine Experience are among the many unique options offered to groups.

Set on 70 acres, Enchantment Resort offers views of the red rock formations that have helped make Sedona, Arizona, famous. The look and feel are equal parts luxury and Native American culture, and several meeting rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and terraces. Groups also enjoy access to Seven Canyons golf club and a destination spa, Mii amo.

When you want to escape the lingering Texas heat for a few days in the fall, but you don’t really want to head north to more blustery conditions, Sonoma or Monterey, located northeast and south of San Francisco respectively, are fabulous options for short retreats or group getaways. And, lucky for you, if you live in or near Dallas, both destinations have direct flights from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, making your trip stress-free.
