If your vision of a vacation in a national park is more like an L.L. Bean catalog and less like National Lampoon’s Vacation, then check out msnbc’s list of the top 10 national park lodges. Forget the musty cabins, giant bugs, and cowboy coffee — these lodges are all about organic meals, down comforters, and panoramic views from the comfort of your porch rocking chair.
A couple of the reviewed lodges are admittedly “rustic” (read: unattached bathroom), but these are still a far cry from canvas walls and sleeping bags.
So, break out the Pendleton blanket, stir up a steaming cup of cocoa, and enjoy your L.L. Bean vacation. Just watch out for bears.
