Reflections

Reflections of an Older America

The snow-topped Tetons shimmering in the Wyoming sun; a wild horse grazing in a marsh off the coast of Georgia; the howl from a coyote in the Arizona desert; the wind sighing through the pines of a California park; blueberry muffins on a summer morning in Maine: these are some of the reasons that visitors return year after year to the five American hostelries described in the following essays. In deference to the glory of the surroundings, the style of these spots—inns, hotels, a dude ranch—is low key. Each exists solely to complement and, whenever possible, to enhance the enjoyment of its natural setting. Each attracts a clientele that loves nature, values solitude, would rather watch a sunset than a television set, but also has a healthy regard for clean sheets, hot showers and good food. These are distinctive places for discerning people.
