With Evitts Mountain as a backdrop, this lovely resort is in one of the state's most idyllic spots. The lobby, dining room, and lounge overlook a 243-acre man-made lake, Lake Habeeb. In keeping with the natural environs outside, natural shades like green and brown are used throughout the six-story hotel. Rooms, larger than usual, are appointed with Shaker-style furniture and flat-screen TVs, and most have views of a breathtaking ridge of mountains. If traveling with your
pet, request a special "V.I.P." room, which greets your furry one with a special treat basket. Suites include a gas fireplace and sitting area. Try a spa treatment, 18 holes on the Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, a hike along the park's trails, or boating, fishing, and swimming.
