Popular but not populous and cultured but not cultivated, the wilderness of North Idaho seems impermeable to the scars of modern advance—and thus perfect for respite from the daily grind. Find solace off the beaten path with an Escape to the Lodge at Sandpoint in Sandpoint, Idaho, USA Today and Rand McNally's pick for 2011's Most Beautiful Small Town in America.

"The Lodge at Sandpoint is a lakeside treasure," says Unique Inns. "The architecture reflects the logging heritage of the area with massive open beams in the boutique hotel's common rooms. The innkeepers built the Lodge to give their guests a sense of being in a private vacation home with the service and amenities of an intimate bed and breakfast inn. They succeeded."

Catch a first glimpse of Lake Pend Oreille as you traverse Long Bridge to your home-away-from-home framed with Ponderosa pines, Douglas firs, and red cedars. Perched on the bank of that lake is your spacious suite, fit with fleece blankets, stained-glass windows, framed art, and antiques.

Be sure to lace-up your hiking boots; the nearby Cabinet Mountains remain a wilderness undefeated by development while the Selkirk Mountains are home to the continental U.S.'s only woodland caribou clan—rough-and-tumble even by Teddy Roosevelt's standards.

Schweitzer Mountain, Idaho's largest ski resort, is a high-altitude high point. Morning, noon, and night, ride the six-person high-speed lifts to wide open bowls and gladed runs. Thirty-two kilometers of ever-tended cross-country trails await the tread of snowshow and ski, while Hermit's Hollow tubing and the 700-foot zip line make ease of exhilaration.

Return from the icy slopes for a hot rock massage and other pampering bodywork at Solstice Spa. A warm dinner of honeycomb salmon, steamed clams, or pasta pescatore on the lakeside deck of Forty-One South followed by a hot tub soak at the Lodge is the perfect end to an idyllic day.

  • "The setting is absolutely gorgeous with a private dock and kayaking and stand up paddling available on the sandy beach. We found ourselves lounging in our room, drinking wine on the balcony or the dock with sunset views, and overlooking the... lake."
