view web site ›'s insider take:

Two hours from the city, this rustic retreat sits among the craggy Huairou mountains at the foot of the Great Wall. Although its remote location means the property closes during the coldest months (between December and early March), during the rest of the year, there's no more peaceful place to clear your mind—and lungs—after a stay in the busy capital (perhaps at the sister property, Red Capital Residence). The property is centered around a stone-walled, Manchurian-inspired hunting lodge, which also serves as the restaurant. Cozy and decorated with colorful Tibetan and Mongolian art, it's a pleasant spot to linger over continental breakfast in the morning and roast lamb or venison at dinnertime. The ten guest villas are little oases, with gauzy canopy curtains drifting around fluffy beds and Tibetan furniture lending an air of Buddhist tranquility. If you want to get out into the country air, hiking areas along unrestored portions of the Great Wall are just a few steps from the property.

Closed December–March.
