9. The Rusty Parrot Lodge – Wyoming, United States

If you are looking for a romantic snowshoe getaway in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, there is no better place to stay than The Rusty Parrot Lodge. One of the top small upscale hotels in the world, this 30-room family-run inn is full of surprises. World-class dining with organic and local ingredients, rooms furnished with fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs, and a thirty page wine list makes for the most enjoyable stay. There is plenty of opportunity for couples to venture out on their own, snowshoes strapped on–with miles of trails in the area. The Rusty Parrot offers a unique guided option to the Winter Teepee camp, which can’t be missed (for the night owls, try the moonlight option). The winding trail will take you on the banks of the Snake River and to amazing views of the Teton Mountain Range, where Bald Eagles and Golden Eagles often reside. If you’re lucky, you may spot the Trumpeter Swan: a winter resident of the river bottom. The trail ends at a traditional style teepee where hot chocolate, coffee and a hot lunch or dinner completes your day. After an invigorating day of snowshoeing, be sure to visit the spa or soak in one of two outdoor hot tubs.
