best of the west

NATURE LOVERS HAPPY CAMPERS The new Airstream hotel, AutoCamp, set near Yosemite National Park’s gateway town of Mariposa, is one for the record. Set to open in February, the 36-acre property’s 102 Airstreams, safari-style glamping tents, and cabins are beautifully outfitted with Tempur-Pedic mattresses and creature comforts to make campers of all stripes feel at home in the woods. Bonus: a gorgeous pool that blurs the line between resort and Instagrammable campground. Keeping in mind recent wildfires, each site also comes with spark-free logs so you can roast marshmallows and tell stories by the fire with ease. From $200; COOK’S CORNER NORTHERN EXPOSURE In Tofino, B.C., the Wickaninnish Inn is known for its seasonal storm-watching opportunities—hurricane-force wind windows, rain pants, and rain boots on hand. The hotel’s famous restaurant also gets in on the…

sweet valley high

MANY ALPINE DESTINATIONS IN THE WEST will hook you up with demo skis, a stylish hotel room, and a crackling fire, but few do it with the panache of Sun Valley, Idaho. The idyllic valley in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains has been welcoming the rich and famous (along with plenty of regular folks) since Sun Valley Resort opened in 1936. The area’s towns have earned a reputation for being low-key celebrity hideouts (at one time for Ernest Hemingway and Gary Cooper, and, more recently, for Bruce Springsteen, Jodie Foster, and Tom Hanks). But it’s getting ever more enticing for the sort of person who doesn’t have a personal chef (or their own private slope). The most recent hotel arrivals are smart without feeling exclusive, and new breweries, design…

arizonaõs sedona

It’s only a matter of time before Sedona trades its hippie aura for a hipster one. Located smack-dab in the middle of the Grand Canyon state, the low-key desert outpost seems primed for lovers of all things small-batch, arti-sanal, and vintage. Of course, it continues to draw visitors with its energy vortexes and crystal shops. Whether or not you believe in all that metaphysical stuff, you can relish hiking in Sedona’s colorful forests, gazing at its stars and red rock cliffs, and dining on locally grown and foraged foods. (Want more? Book a hair-raising guided tour in a bubble gum–colored Jeep.) 8 A.M. At Pump House Station Urban Eatery and Market (, cozy up to the stone fireplace and linger over delicate sugar-cinnamon crêpes with home-made sage sausage and a lavender…

winter wellness

It’s the season for hosting parties, traveling to see family, and making sure each relative receives the perfect present. Between all the indulgent feasts, air miles, and rolls of wrapping paper, it’s easy to stop looking after yourself. Seriously, who has the time? Not Stefani Bittner and Kylie Flanagan of the San Francisco Bay Area’s Homestead Design Collective. When days are hectic at the landscape design firm or there’s just too much going on at home, they pluck ingredients from their backyards and whip up simple tonics and salves bursting with vitamins and healing properties. “The winter garden can be really beautiful and abundant in nutrient-rich plants,” says Bittner, who points to calendula, citrus, parsley, and radicchio as some of her favorites. She often shares what she reaps either as-is, at…

take the party outside

When landscape designer Greg Salmeri opens his Laguna Beach, California, house for one of his grand events, he’s inclined to lean on the sprawling outdoor spaces to set the scene. Here, the owner of Los Angeles’ Rolling Greens home and garden shops marries Mediterranean greenery (echium, Italian cypress, and olive trees) with wild wisteria and colorful natives that sweeten the deal for bees. Neighboring palm trees and ocean views leave no doubt that you’re in Orange County. The look, balanced with a handpicked assembly of rustic European antiques, is at once traditional and out of the box for this time of year’s obsession with cherry reds and evergreen. Follow his tips for taking the party and the decor outside, no matter the season. 1 GRAB THE SPOTLIGHT “Lighting is a way for…
