Roving I Finds: The Great Outdoors on Sale

The Haylofts

I pretty much suck at camping. I admit it. Why would I trudge into the wilderness to sleep with the wildlife when I can pay perfectly good money for a nearby 4-star hotel with a comfy bed, hot shower, continental breakfast and lovely wilderness views? My finds this week are focused on those very properties - amazing hotels and accommodations that make experiencing "The Great Outdoors" so much more enjoyable.

  • Valde Haylofts, Italy: I've never heard of "glamping" but if it's anything like what this place offers, count me in. About an hour from both Milan and Zurich, high in the mountains above Chiavenna, Italy, the Haylofts are a small grouping of restored cottages from the 1700s that offer luxury and simplicity at the same time. Book through Jetsetter.com by next week for special savings on stays through February 2012.

  • Evergreen Lodge, Yosemite: Another Jetsetter find. Situated just outside of California's legendary Yosemite National Park, these cedar-sided cabins offer coziness and comfort after a long day of exploring the wonders of Yosemite. Prices are as low as $125/night for stays through March 2012 if you book by Sunday.

  • Snake River Lodge, Wyoming: And one final pick from Jetsetter - A little rustic, a little modern, Snake River Lodge is located near Grand Teton National Park and is perfectly placed for skiing. You can book dates throughout ski season for as low as $190/night.
