America's Wildest Hotels
Dream vacations often call to mind sandy beaches, frosty cocktails and poolside massage service, but adventurous travelers can opt to wrangle cattle, sleep in trees, run zip-line courses and ski trails accessible only by helicopter.
Perched in a 200-year-old western red cedar within Mount Rainier National Park, this tree house is accessed via a 50-foot stairwell. Guests mountain bike, cook freshly caught trout beside the creek and search for huckleberries and chanterelles in the surrounding forest, depending on the season (and their level of mushroom expertise).
