Inspector Picks: Five Hotels with the Best Mountain Views
Foxtrot Bed & Breakfast
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: For a milestone anniversary, big birthday or romantic getaway you will be hard-pressed to find a more spectacular setting and ambiance than here.
This exquisite property sits on wooded private grounds directly upon the shore of Lake Tremblant. Rooms are highly luxurious and are with balconies. The restaurant features an exceptional wine cellar. Marble bathrooms have heated floors and some have classic claw-footed deep soaking bathtubs with a view to the lake. The full-service spa overlooks the pristine lake and offers therapeutic sessions as well as beauty treatments. In summer, enjoy luxurious lounging by the lakefront infinity pool. In the evening, guests may sit in Adirondack chairs around a campfire or enjoy wine sampling at the wine bar. A two-tiered, upscale dining room affords excellent lake views. Mountain skiing and sport is very nearby.Book Now
