Escape to a simpler time at this rustic lodge on Silver Lake—less than 50 miles south of Lake Tahoe, it's worlds away from the crowds and congestion of the modern age.

The Destination
Kit Carson Lodge took the road less traveled even before there were roads to travel. More than 85 years ago, when vacation homes began going up around Lake Tahoe, Kit Carson Lodge retreated to Silver Lake, about 45 minutes south, where it's been catering to travelers' rustic sensibilities ever since. Outdoorsmen aren't the only ones admiring the view: Kit Carson has graced the cover of Sunset magazine, which recognized the lodge as a top mountain resort in the Sierra.

The Digs
While it's not quite as backwoods as it once was, this 27-unit retreat of 19 cabins and 8 hotel rooms is still in the thick of Eldorado National Forest. At 7,300 feet above sea level, situated on Kit Carson Road just steps from the lake, it's maintained a decidedly woodsy, far-from-everything aesthetic with wood-paneled rooms, raftered ceilings, patchwork quilts, and pastoral artwork. Both hotel rooms and cabins feature cedar and pine wood, private baths, and decks overlooking lake and forest. Cozy cabins come with additional creature comforts like wood-burning stoves and fully equipped kitchens, perfect for settling in and spreading out with a larger group.
