Mountain and High Desert Hideaways
A hideaway is a place where architecture and landscape, amenities and ambience conspire to delight― the glow of red rocks and adobe at dawn, a horse and rider, a desert sunset, a ski lodge dwarfed by a rugged mountain backdrop, a soaring atrium of Ponderosa pine and stone, a Navajo blanket covering a bed, a fire burning in an adobe kiva...
Mountain & High Desert Hideaways highlights the distinctive architecture and lifestyle at the most stunning and spectacular thirty-five resorts, dude ranches, inns, spas, and lodges in the southwest and mountain areas of the United States, Canada, and Mexico― regions where the grandeur of the landscape is the true star of the show, where buildings harmonize with breathtaking vistas to create a profound sense of place. While every retreat shares a deep respect for the environment, there are striking and strong regional and individual features specific to each venue. The book is also a resource for the wonderful array of activities available― hiking, fishing, horseback riding, skiing, white-water rafting, mountain biking, swimming, yoga, tennis, and golf― and amenities that each destination offers.
With more than two hundred photographs, Mountain & High Desert Hideaways presents an impressive list of treasures small and large, old and new, and is the perfect guide to creating an unforgettable getaway.
