You don't have to be an Outside subscriber to enjoy this property—set atop a cliff within 2,500 acres of virgin forest and just a stone's throw from the wonders of the Volcanic Plateau. But self-sustaining sorts will certainly appreciate it here. The rustic main lodge (with a billiard room, cocktail lounge, dining area, and library) and eight guest villas are all constructed from native stone and wood, and fan-cooled. The running water is drawn from UV-treated natural springs, which also feed the property's trout-stocked streams and lakes. Meandering paths lead through the forest: One goes to the spectacular 80-foot Bridalveil Falls; others lead to glowworm caves that are spookily lovely at night. As you stroll the grounds, you might find yourself accompanied by Othello, the estate's 140-pound resident pig, or some free-roaming deer. Don't get too attached to the latter; one of them might end up as a decadent venison sausage on your plate.

Appeared in the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List, a directory of the world's best hotels and resorts, in 2009, 2008
