Fodor's Expert Review Highlands Ranch Resort

41515 Hwy. 36 E, Mill Creek, California, 96061, USA Fodor's Choice

On a gorgeous 175-acre alpine meadow 10 miles from Lassen's southwest entrance, this cluster of smartly designed upscale bungalows is peaceful and luxurious. Units are outfitted with gas fireplaces, high-end bath amenities, fine linens, plush beds, and high-definition flat-screen TVs. If you're looking for proximity to the park but don't want to rough it, these digs are worth the splurge. Some have two-person outdoor Jacuzzi tubs, and all enjoy sweeping pastoral views. Rates include a full breakfast in the restaurant, which also serves terrific regional American fare for lunch and dinner.
