You need to get away—from the noise, the daily grind, and the city grime. But getting to that place of serenity needn't involve long-haul flights, days of trekking, or roughing it once you arrive. We've searched high and low and found remote destinations right here in the United States. From a former ghost town in the Colorado mountains to a swank oasis in Death Valley, here are seven lodges that will give you that faraway feeling without jet lag. And at the end of the trip, you can easily go home again. That is, if you want to.
