In what seemed to be quite an understated announcement this last week, Inspirato casually dropped some news that is a BIG DEAL! Don’t get me wrong, it’s a wonderful thing that Inspirato Pass has been adding so much great inventory over this past year that when they add two of the world’s top properties into their inventory, it hardly causes a stir. But, I was plenty stirred…and in the best of ways.
Let’s not forget that Inspirato already has fabulous inventory at Montage Kapalua, Montage Los Cabos, and Montage Palmetto Bluff. They also have Montage Laguna Beach as a hotel option, but do not have residences there…at least not yet. And that’s perfectly fine because Inspirato has coastal OC more than covered with a boatload of incredible residences at Pelican Hill Resort (which we’re partial to anyway). We’ll actually be back there again with Inspirato Pass in just a few short weeks. But, I digress. My point here is that Inspirato inventory at Montage properties is already impressive. It just happens to get even better with this latest new inventory announcement.
Okay, so what’s the announcement all about? Inspirato is adding a number of Inspirato exclusive units at both Montage Deer Valley and Montage Healdsburg. This is big! I’d argue that the Montage Deer Valley is the top ski town resort in the entire United States. Granted, I haven’t been to all of them, but I’ve been to many, and Montage Deer Valley is stunning. When my wife and I received notice of this inventory announcement by email last week, we immediately took out our calendars to find a time this summer that we can sneak away to celebrate our 22nd anniversary. Park City/Deer Valley is our absolute favorite spot. We love it so much, in fact, that it’s the only destination that we regularly discuss moving to full-time at some point in our lives. We love it for ski season. We love it during the summer. Shoot, we even love it during the muddy and cruddy shoulder season. We’ve visited Montage Deer Valley for a few wonderful meals during trips over the past few years, but we’re yet to have had the pleasure of staying there. That’s about to change now that Inspirato has added it to their ever expanding portfolio!
And as far as the Montage Healdsburg, it is a brand new resort that just recently opened. I’ve never seen it in person and don’t know terribly much about it. However, judging by the photos, I’m confident that it’s going to be as awesome as the rest of the Montage portfolio. Hmmm, wait a sec now, I’m finding myself wavering about Montage Deer Valley this summer and thinking perhaps we should instead consider Montage Healdsburg for our anniversary trip. What to do…so dang stressful?! (Yeah, I’ll admit that our dilemma here might qualify as a first-world-problem on steroids) I think we’ll be more than pleased with whatever decision we end up making. 🙂
As an Inspirato Pass member, the expanding Inspirato/Montage partnership is certainly something to get excited about. The two brands are value-consistent, culture-consistent, and experience-consistent. For those of you that have had the privilege of experiencing both Inspirato and Montage, you’ll get what I’m saying here. Inspirato and Montage both seemingly effortlessly (although in actuality with great purpose and intention) provide an unparalleled level of quality and service, always in a way that does not feel overly pretentious or exaggerated. It’s all delivered with elegantly relaxed authenticity. This is not an easy balance to achieve. Kudos to Inspirato and Montage!
Now, if you’ll please excuse me, I have some travel planning to get to!
Happy and safe travels my friends!
