Biggest pain and gain: Granite Park Chalet, Glacier

Why we love it: You hike six hours along the top of the Rockies to get to this 1914 Montana chalet, but they’re awe-inducing hours. Life is simple here: You cook your own food in the kitchen, but you get a private bedroom and can rent linen and blankets if you don’t want to lug your sleeping bag.

Don’t miss: Wildflower, grizzly bear, and geology workshops ($60 each). $85/person; graniteparkchalet.com
