Dating back to the 1940s, these five log cabins were built by three National Ski Hall of Fame brothers, and today still serve as the ultimate basecamp for your ski vacation. Set on the eastern edge of Salt Lake City at the base of the Wasatch Mountains, the cozy cabins feature vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors, while there’s a hot tub to soak in after you return from the slopes. Don’t miss the home-made buttermilk biscuits and spiced bacon breakfast, worthy of a stay in itself.

This 1892-built Mormon pioneer mansion will have you stepping into the past. Its six historic suites are filled with period antiques and features, including original chandeliers, hand-nailed floorboards and giant sash windows. Even the hearty, seasonally inspired breakfasts are presented on turn-of-the-century tableware. Proximity to Salt Lake City International Airport and fine city dining puts modern comforts within reach.

3. Inn on the Cliff, for panoramas of Snow Canyon in St George

As the name suggests, this spectacular stay is built right on the edge of a cliff. Both the outdoor pool and the boutique rooms enjoy panoramas of tiny St George, the colorful sandstone formations of Snow Canyon and even a glimpse of Zion National Park in the distance. The inn’s earth-tone interior matches the natural surroundings. Don’t miss the upscale American cuisine and dazzling views from the on-site Cliffside Restaurant.

4. Dreamkatchers Lake Powell Bed and Breakfast, for a themed adventure in Big Water

Subtle themes add fun to this Big Water B&B. Stay in the Cherub room with angels on the wall and a brass ceiling fan, or the Asian room decorated with Chinese artwork and hand-painted fans. The biggest selling point, however, is the location just north of Page, Arizona, which puts some of America’s premier natural wonders, such as Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and the Glen Canyon Dam, within a short drive. You can even rent your own boat to explore magical Lake Powell.

5. 5th East Hall Bed and Breakfast, for a tropical, romantic getaway in American Fork

Romance seekers are in good hands at this plush B&B just north of Utah Lake. It features five travel-themed suites designed by a wedding and event planning team. Check into the Tahiti Suite where you’ll get an 80-gallon tropical fish tank to go with your two-person soaking tub, the Cancun Suite to be greeted by real sand and shells, or the Maui room for cave-textured walls and a waterfall shower.

This Torrey B&B will give you a National Geographic-worthy experience, as it faces right out to Capitol Reef National Park. All six rooms offer dreamy views, but the Sagebrush stands out, as it features a hot tub and private deck from which to enjoy the scenery. A breakfast of pecan griddle cakes and apple-stuffed croissants pushes this stay firmly to the top of the food chain.

Surrounded by Cedar Breaks National Monument, Bryce and Zion National Parks and Dixie National Forest, this intimate mountain hideaway is the perfect base for touring canyon land. Bypass the regular rooms for the two-bedroom hillside wood cabins, which come with full kitchens, fireplaces and jet tubs. There’s also an outdoor barbecue shaded by big pines and an on-site diner for when you don’t feel like cooking.

If you need a cozy place to stay during Cedar City’s Shakespeare Festival, book a few nights at this intimate B&B. Set in a 1930s cottage on a quiet tree-lined street, it features nine rooms set to literary and historic themes, with plenty of stained glass, murals and other fine artwork. Not only are the owners interior designers, they used to run a cake and candy store – as a result, you’ll be treated to complimentary home-baked goodies and inspiring breakfast recipes from their cookbook.

Originally a boarding house built in 1927, this grand old building is full of antiques and wooden furniture crafted in an on-site workshop. There are seven rooms, some of which feature handcrafted beds.

10. Lizzie’s Heritage Inn, for generations-old lodging in Parowan

Bed and Breakfast

This historical landmark was built in 1870 by the pioneers who established the Old Rock Church, and has been handed down through five generations.

You can choose from four quaint rooms here, including the downstairs East Room, which boasts a gas fireplace and four-poster bed.
