Whether you want to be immersed in the winter season or escape it, the lodges are ideal. Yes, they sit deep within America's great wildernesses, but they are far from wild. These are refined places, tame spots amid landscapes full of wolves and bears.
In these lodges, hikers, bird watchers and skiers can drink hot chocolate by an 85-foot stone fireplace, attend a 17th-century feast or go for a swim. Confronting the wild, doesn't require discomfort any longer.
