The 132-room hotel, which is certified eco-friendly, boasts fireplaces (even summer nights in Jackson Hole can be chilly!) and terraces in most rooms. But you don't go to Jackson to spend all your time in front of a fire. This is an outdoor-sports mecca. You'll find seven miles of single-track out the hotel's back door, for starters, but there are dozens of other mountain- and road-biking trails in the area, not to mention hiking paths, climbing routes, white-water kayaking and rafting, and more. The concierge can provide maps and set up tours for you; Jackson Treehouse, downstairs at the hotel, rents cruiser bikes ($35 per day). Post-workout, make a beeline for the rooftop Chill Spa and the couples suite that's decked out with a huge Jacuzzi tub, a fireplace, and more of those mesmerizing views ($270 for a 60-minute couples massage). Then, refuel-and wine taste-at Il Villaggio Osteria, the hotel's restaurant, which is also popular with locals (always a good sign).

Details: Rooms from $189. The two-night honeymoon rate gets you champagne upon arrival, two Aprés Adventure spa packages-which include a scrub, body mask, and deep-tissue massage-and more (from $690 per couple;
