AAA Inspector 24: I find it hard to choose between the porch swing or Adirondack chairs while outside viewing Mt. Leconte and the spectacular Smokies.
The inn offers tranquil rooms with king beds. A gourmet breakfast is served daily. A new patio with a fireplace kitchen is a great spot to sit in an Adirondack chair and take in the spectacular views. Guests enjoy access to several nearby clubhouses for pool, tennis and fitness center privileges.

AAA Inspector 603: My perfect fall day is relaxing in the hot tub looking over the infinity pool and the lake at the colorful foliage in the mountains beyond. Sigh...
This property sits on three acres of private grounds on the shore of Lake Tremblant. Featuring wood-burning fireplaces and excellent lake views, all rooms are luxurious and at least 700 square feet. Marble bathrooms have heated floors and oversize, jetted tubs. Also available is one exclusive lakeside cabin. The full-service spa overlooks the pristine lake. In summer, enjoy luxurious lounging by the lakefront infinity pool. In the evening, guests may sit in Adirondack chairs around a camp fire or enjoy wine sampling at the wine bar. A two-tiered, upscale dining room affords excellent lake views.

Sandia Resort & Casino

AAA Inspector 599: I could sit at the pool and stare at the Sandia Mountains all day! The view at this property has to be the best in the city.
In a beautiful setting at the foothills of the Sandia Mountains, this resort offers an abundance of on-site activities. The plush guest rooms are very well-appointed and most have incredible views. Pamper yourself at the luxurious spa, enjoy a round at the world-class 18-hole golf course or have a go with Lady Luck at the exciting casino that has nightly entertainment.

Skamania Lodge
Stevenson, Washington
AAA Inspector Rating
AAA Inspector 31: Nestled in tall pines with nature all around, I find this lodge is a retreat for my mind and body. The view of the Columbia River isn't bad either!
Settle in for a lazy weekend and enjoy the food, recreation and tranquility of this peaceful retreat. The panoramic views are delightful. Some guest rooms have balconies. Nestled among the trees on a hillside overlooking the Columbia River Gorge, this lodge features a cozy sitting area with fire to keep guests warm as they soak up the panoramic view of the golf course, distant river, multihued canyons and mountains.
