A half-hour north of Las Vegas in the gorgeous Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, Mount Charleston Cabins are perched along the wall of a steep canyon. A postcard-perfect romantic mountaintop retreat of condo-style log cabins with private decks, fireplaces and whirlpool baths. A large, rustic restaurant around a wood-burning fireplace and scenic outdoor deck are relaxing spots. Go horseback riding, backpacking, and even sleigh riding in the winter. Find nearby hiking trails, picnic sites and a ski resort.
