McMenamins Kennedy School
Located in a former elementary school, this hip hotel is decked out with chalkboards and colorful local art.

Trapp Family Lodge
This European-style resort in the Green Mountains was founded by descendants of the von Trapp family — yes, the singing siblings from The Sound of Music. The movie connection ends there, though. With rustic villas, relaxing massages, a variety of hiking trails and, now, a brand-new craft brewery specializing in Austrian-style lagers, this 2,500-acre retreat is ideal for beer lovers with refined palates.
