The World's Sexiest Winter Lodges

by Jason H. Harper

The lodge: Teton Ridge Ranch, Tetonia, Idaho

Perfect for you and: Your mogul husband

Isolation index: 6 out of 10. Teton Ridge Ranch is close to places you've heard of—namely, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. But since the 4,000-acre property is more than an hour from Jackson, Wyoming, and seven miles off the main road, expect a cascade of pure silence.

Cold comfort: This is the kind of place you'd expect billionaires like Ted Turner to visit (or, more likely, own). True-blue Western, with lots of pine and stone fireplaces and big windows looking out on the jagged Tetons, the five-bedroom ranch sits on a pristine swath of land. During the day, the two of you can slip into the Targhee National Forest by sleigh, snowshoes, or cross-country skis—the ranch will provide you with a first-rate guide. Back in your private suite, warm your frosty footsies by the wood-burning stove, then take a communal dip in the Jacuzzi.

The aphrodisiac: The candle-lit dining room for dinner, which has two large, roaring fireplaces. Your stay is all-inclusive, and all that outdoor (or perhaps indoor) activity will have you attacking spinach soufflé and huckleberry French toast at breakfast and elk tenderloin by night.
