Algonquin Park, Ontario Canada

Whether the season is spring, summer, or fall, Killarney Lodge never fails to enchant. Drive to the southern end of Ontario's Algonquin Provincial Park on Highway 60 in the spring and you'll no doubt spot moose licking the salt from the leftover snow. Come summer, the wildflowers are in full bloom and the gray jays and chickadees practically eat out of your hand. In autumn, foliage's fiery...

Greenville, ME

Opened in 1873 as a timber camp for those tough-as-bark men who chopped down trees and then rode atop the logs on rapid-churning rivers to the paper mill, Little Lyford made the transition to a sporting camp at the turn of the 19th century. "Sports," as they would call them, would take the long train ride from Boston and New York to fish for native brook trout on the waters of the West Branch...

Port Hardy, British Columbia Canada

The wildlife show begins before you even leave the lodge: barn swallows zoom in and out of their mud nests in the roof; a family of common mergansers glides across the glassy water off the deck; two harbor seals—one named Bob, and the other Not Bob—sun themselves on a floating log nearby.

But the main attraction is the bears. Twice a day, wildlife biologists lead grizzly...

Leavenworth, WA

Some of the signature sounds at Run of the River aren't so surprising—the crackling of wood in the fireplace, the chatter of chickadees outside your window. And then there's this: the clack-clack-clack of an old-fashioned typewriter, as yet another guest feels inspired to document his romantic musings.

Typewriters are a standard amenity at this "inn and refuge" in...

Homer, AK

It's the rare, rugged individual who ventures into the wilds of Alaska, where nature is at its most unruly, and decides to call it home. Rarer still are the folks who, having settled in such a place, swing open the cabin doors to city-softened visitors and host them with panache.

Michael and Diane McBride are two such characters. They built a waterfront cabin in the 1970s, and started...

Little St. Simons Island, GA

At the turn of the 19th century, America's great tycoons needed a far more laidback alternative to their opulent mansions in Newport, especially during the cooler months of winter. The Rockefellers, Pulitzers, and Astors decided to head down to Georgia's barrier islands. Lots became manicured, roads were paved, and large resorts created shadows on the shores. Remarkably, however, there remains...

Kachemak Bay (nine miles offshore from Homer), AK

South of Anchorage, the shores of the Kenai Peninsula are glacial-carved inlets where 4,000-foot peaks plummet into the waters below. Kachemak and Tutka bays stretch more than ten miles into the forested interior, protected from the nasty glaciers and swells of the Gulf of Alaska. Otters, sea lions, porpoises, eagles, and seals use these relatively calm waters as a safe haven, and now you can...

Cameron, MT

When word spread that Papoose Creek Lodge in southwestern Montana was shutting down in late 2007, the eco-lodging community gasped that the first of the country's luxury green resorts was closing its doors. But the mourning was short-lived when it was announced that the nearby private residence of Papoose Creek's founders, Roger and Cindy Lang, was being remodeled and renovated into a lush...
