Luxury canvas tents? No, thank you. For your next foray into the wilderness, opt for log-cabin chic instead, at three spots located in some of the most beautiful settings imaginable.
Take a load off at Yellowstone's Explorer Cabins.
Yellowstone Explorer Cabins: The marketing folks at the famous park have coined the term "cabineering™" to describe its 50 new lodges, which offer "the comforts of home and the perks of a hotel." Located a short drive away from Old Faithful in West Yellowstone, the cabins boast flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, a kitchenette and s'mores fixings. From $280 a night
The view from Hotel Endémico
Hotel Endémico: Twenty steel-and-wood cabins staggered along the hills in Mexico's Valle de Guadalupe are a minimalist's dream. Each eco-friendly, freestanding cabin was designed to blend into the natural landscape. Getting too warm on your private terrace? Take a dip in the pool overlooking the valley. From $225 a night
The great outdoors at Dunton Hot Springs
Dunton Hot Springs: These 12 luxury lodges, located in Dolores, Colorado, aren't exactly what the region's settlers lived in. Each hand-built lodging has unique characteristics, from the Well House's own hot spring to the Vertical Log's antique copper tub. With activities ranging from horseback riding to heli-skiing, you'll get a taste of outdoor life, with the benefit of a spa and organic cuisine when you return to camp. From $550 a night
