This effective riff on Yellowstone's woody Old Faithful Lodge, swaddled by oaks and pines, is picturesque but disconnected from the rest of the park—the Magic Kingdom, 10 minutes away by ferry, is the only thing easy to reach if you don't have your own car. Most of its tricks are in its dramatic atrium lobby: giant stone hearth, springs that flow to a thronged, geyser-themed pool area out back. Because of the surrounding woods, rooms are a little dark, but they have adorable rustic touches headboards carved with woodland creature finials.
