OT AhwneeBuilt In. One of the country's most revered national parks, Yosemite, has a lodge that seems to grow right out of the scenery. The 123-room Ahwahnee was built in 1927 in a style that fuses art deco, Middle Eastern, Native American, and arts and crafts design. Its massive stone fireplaces and stained glass make it feel like an American fairy tale.








OT Jenny ResortRustic Luxe. Since the 1920s, the Jenny Lake Lodge, in Wyoming's Grand Teton National Forest, has been welcoming travelers eager for Old West charm. All 37 cabins have homemade quilts -- and no TVs.







OT ZionRest Easy. Zion Lodge is the only in-park property within Utah's breathtaking Zion National Park. Reserve one of the lodge's 40 cabins or 75 motel rooms -- ideal for crashing after making the most of the park's 200 miles of hiking trails.










OT Atl OakesCushy on the Coast. On Mount Desert Island in Maine, the Atlantic Oakes by-the-Sea resort (the view from which is pictured) is a great place to recover in luxury after a daylong bike ride through nearby Acadia National Park.
