Splendid isolation surrounded by mountains, Blanket Bay sits at the north end of Lake Wakatipu, where peace and solitude are guaranteed alongside breathtaking views, glacial tours, serious hiking and easy access to the Queenstown wine trail. Rooms, suites and chalet suites are a showcase of natural materials contrasting with polished woods and invitingly comfortable sofas.

Travel + Leisure says..."Baronial castle dating from the 16th century on the edge of Lough Dromoland, 10 minutes north of Shannon; it's one of Ireland's most storied castles, in a fairy-tale setting complete with falconry grounds and a golf course." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Guests “feel like royalty” at this “outrageously beautiful” sixteenth-century fortified castle on a 410-acre estate with gardens and a lake. The limestone exterior of towers and turrets gives way to interiors with Waterford-crystal chandeliers, damask wall coverings, and tasseled drapes. The staff are “attentive and friendly,” and the “lovely rooms” have Empire and Louis XV furnishings, floral fabrics, and eighteenth-century botanical drawings. The “warm and welcoming bar” offers cocktails with live music, and the Earl of Thomond serves “fabulous local seafood and meat”—dishes like Irish beef with leeks and cèpes. Spend your days on the tennis courts or at the falconry school or golf academy, which has ten driving bays." ~From cntraveler.com

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."Set on an island that is fully encircled by mountain peaks, the 24-cabin lodge is as remote today as it was when it was built in 1902. Guests do not have easy access to TV's or the Internet, and most rooms are outfitted with balconies overlooking the water. Wildlife spotting is the activity of choice, along with ice-skating and dinner picnics and marshmallow roasts by romantic lakeside fire pits." -From Travel + Leisure

Conde Nast Traveler says..."It is as stunning as the brochure says." Overlooking Emerald Lake, this 1902 timber-and-birch lodge has a dining room, a games room, and stone fireplaces. Rooms in two-story alpine cabins with willow furnishings are either "a little shabby" or "high-end rustic." Mount Burgess Dining Room's bison, caribou, elk, and salmon are "fresh, innovative, and beautifully presented." "Friendly staff treated me like family." " -From Conde Nast Traveler

Conde Nast Traveler says..."This 1902 timber property on a peninsula overlooking a glacial lake in Yoho National Park, west of Banff, is in “an inspirational location and has a great layout,” hence the two perfect scores. The two-story alpine cabins with fireplaces and private balconies have no TVs, and some are “in need of refurbishment.” In summer, guests cross a wooden bridge to dine at Cilantro on the Lake, a log cabin. Mount Burgess’s Rocky Mountain cuisine means caribou medallions, elk tenderloin, and salmon fillets. The local terrain draws cross-country skiers, although some prefer to just “sit in the moonlight and gaze at the peaks reflected in the lake.”" ~From CondeNastTraveler.com

Juicy Tidbits

Conde Nast Traveler says..."In a “terrific setting away from the crowds,” this 1920s lodge surrounded by pines has views of the Grand Tetons that are “to die for.” Freestanding log cabins tucked in the woods are “quaint and comfy,” with handmade comforters and log walls. Look forward to “wonderful food” in the dining room—breakfast and dinner are included, the latter consisting of a rotating menu of items like local Wyoming buffalo carpaccio and garlic-marinated pheasant breast. “The setting is as good as the meal.” Guests can spot bears, moose, elk, and more in the environs, which include three glacial lakes." ~From cntraveler.com
