When it comes time to plan a winter vacation, there are two types of people: those who prefer to flee the season to a beach somewhere and those who embrace winter in all of its hygge glory. For the latter group, we’ve rounded up eight of the best mountain lodge resorts in America to get cozy in when the snow starts falling.

Less than 30 miles (48 kilometers) from downtown Seattle, the Salish Lodge and Spa feels like another world. Overlooking the incredible Snoqualmie Falls, each guest room has a wood-burning fireplace and an oversized bathtub. And for culture buffs, the hotel has the added benefit of being the setting for some of David Lynch’s creepiest moments in Twin Peaks.

Located two miles (3.2 kilometers) from the base of the tallest mountain in Vermont (meaning excellent skiing), Topnotch has one of the best après-ski bars in the country, with fireplaces, live music, and over 20 beers on tap. A winter bonus: Reindeer sometimes come out to pull sleigh rides.
