Adult only resort in Colorado / Western US

Anyone know of an "adult only" ranch/resort/spa in Colorado or western US? It is just my wife and I (late 40's). We both like to chill by the pool, short hikes, horseback ride, zipline / other outdoor adventures, spa, maybe fishing nearby?

I know this is probably asking alot but it is our 20th wedding anniversary trip and we want it to be a special one.

Anybody have any thoughts????

I can't think of any "adult only" resorts in the area, but these two are fairly cost prohibitive for bringing along children.

Thanks for the feedback, greatly appreciated. It is fairly cost prohibitive to me as well, > 1K per night, ouch! I might handle 5 or 6 hundred, but 1K is way over my head...

When is your trip, or are you flexible on the dates? Some of the guest ranches/dude ranches have "adults only" for certain time periods.

For example, Rainbow Trout Ranch has their "adult only" time in September, which would be an awesome time to visit. I don't know of ziplines near there but they would have great fishing, horseback riding, and hiking.

But if you can afford it, Dunton would be the ultimate romantic trip in my book. Maybe a few days there and a few days somewhere else. (remember when you look at their prices that it does include your meals)

Thanks for the suggestions. Sorry for not mentioning the timeframe, most likely July or August. My wife is a school teacher and these are the only months we can really go for a week or so. I would love to go in September but can't do...
