  • Inn on the Hill (Salt Lake City; tel. 801/328-1466; www.innonthehillslc.com): Two blocks from both the Utah State Capitol and Temple Square, this stately mansion atop Capitol Hill is one of Salt Lake City's greatest B&Bs, thanks in no small part to its tremendous city and mountain views. Look for original details -- such as wavy and stained-glass windows and steam heat.
  •  

  • Atomic Chalet (near Ogden; tel. 801/745-0538; www.atomicchalet.com): Growing up in the shadow of a nuclear power plant near San Diego gave Wes Welch the inspiration for the name of his (and his wife Keri's) inn, but his experience as a professional volleyball player in the European Alps inspired its style and service.
  •  

  • Blue Boar Inn (Midway; tel. 888/654-1400; www.theblueboarinn.com): Named for a watering hole in Robin Hood lore, the Blue Boar Inn is tucked into an upscale neighborhood in historic Midway under the beautiful mountain vista of Wasatch Mountain State Park. This is a special property, with a dozen attractive and plush guest rooms named for poets and authors.
  •  

  • Hines Mansion Luxury Bed & Breakfast (Provo; tel. 800/428-5636; www.hinesmansion.com): A Victorian mansion ripe with vintage charm, this is a wonderful place to celebrate a wedding anniversary or romantic occasion, with complimentary sparkling cider and two-person whirlpool tubs in every room.
  •  

  • Seven Wives Inn Bed & Breakfast (St. George; tel. 800/600-3737; www.sevenwivesinn.com): This was the first B&B in Utah, and it's one of the loveliest. There are no polygamists hiding in the attic anymore, but you'll feel like you've stepped back in time. The two historic 19th-century homes are outfitted with antiques, mostly Victorian and Eastlake. You'll love the several decks, porches, and balconies.
  •  

  • Stone Canyon Inn (near Bryce Canyon National Park; tel. 866/489-4680; www.stonecanyoninn.com): Quiet seclusion, loads of charm, and absolutely splendid views are only three of the reasons why this inn is so highly recommended -- it is also very upscale and the place to come to be pampered. Each of the six guest rooms is unique, with queen-size or king-size beds, handsome wood furnishings, and a classic Western look; and the luxurious cottages each have two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a gas fireplace, full kitchen, and a private deck with a hot tub.
  •  

  • Sunflower Hill Luxury Inn (Moab; tel. 800/662-2786; www.sunflowerhill.com): Loaded with country charm, this delightful B&B makes you feel like you're at Grandma's, where family relics surround you and handmade quilts keep you warm at night. What's more, this may be the quietest lodging in Moab, and the grassy, shady grounds are especially inviting on a hot day.
