With a spectacular spa with mud baths, massage, and other treatments; a geyser-heated Olympic-size pool; stunning meditative grounds; and a solid and well-priced restaurant, Sam’s Social Club, this is one of the best places to stay for a resort-style experience without the outlandish price tag of many upscale getaways in the area. Immaculate and spacious contemporary rooms are scattered in freestanding buildings around the expansive property. It’s so relaxed here that if you don’t want to walk from your room to the spa or to the bar (where you can try house-made beer or a spectacular artisan cocktail), you can simply hop on one of the complimentary bikes—in your soft, comfy robe, if you like. Don’t forget to leave a note on the gratitude tree.
