Emerald Lake Lodge, Field, B.C.
High in the Canadian Rockies, Emerald Lake Lodge won't provide you with email, cell service, or in-room TV. Instead, it gives you deep, soft snows on a 13-acre peninsula jutting out into Emerald Lake. In the main lodge-a hand-hewn timber structure that dates back to 1902-you'll play pool by the fireplace, drink at an oak bar salvaged from a 19th-century Yukon saloon, then sup on dishes like duck breast and hazelnut risotto. When it's time to turn in, you'll sleep in one of 24 two-story cabins, each with a balcony and stone fireplace. Local activities include cross-country skiing, downhill at nearby Lake Louise, and ice-skating on Emerald Lake. From $203 U.S.; crmr.com/emerald less
