Sadie Cove Wilderness Lodge, Homer, Alaska

This eco-lodge puts up a maximum of 12 guests per night and groups of six or more can have the lodge to themselves, so it's a true escape. The lodge relies entirely on wind energy and hydropower and works hard not to interfere with the untouched wilderness on its doorstep. You might even be lucky enough to spot a whale, seal, porpoise, or one of many other sea creatures right outside!
