I am looking for a guide/climbing partner for late May to hike/climb a few 14ers. Does anyone have a recommendation for a private guide or a service?

there are a number of guiding outfits here, they mostly operate within certain areas of the state, San Juan mountain guides or Aspen Expeditions are probably who you're looking for

I'd recommend Ricardo Pena. 14er finisher, US state highpoint finisher, Denali, Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro completer. Guided Orizaba over 50 times. Friendly and knowledgeable.

You can find him on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Ricardo.Pena.Araujo), or his website: https://www.alpineexpeditions.net/index.html

Note late May is considered late winter in terms of snow above treeline.

I used Jackson Hole Mountain Guides when I had done Kiener's on Longs. Currently coordinating with Aspen Alpine Guides to do NW Buttress of Capitol this summer. Pikes Peak Alpine does guiding and training events on Pikes...
