John Muir Lodge, Kings Canyon National Park, California, USA

More mid-range than upscale, this iconic stone and timber retreat – quiet, comfortable and completely cosy – is still a corker, sitting snugly in Grant Grove Village, minutes from the famed forest of giant sequoias.

Top tip? Head to the porches at the west end of the lodge and savour the Sierra sunset from a rocker.
