Sadie Cove Wilderness Lodge, Alaska
888/283-7234 or sadiecove.com
Hand-built from milled driftwood, this remote inn inside Kachemak Bay State Park has been welcoming guests for nearly 30 years. With just five cabins, the hosts guarantee peace and quiet.
Eco cred: Wind and hydropower mean guilt-free electricity, and all water comes from a swift mountain stream. The lodge ships out its recyclables for proper processing.
Insider’s tip: Take a flight over beautiful, volcanic Augustine Island.
