North America's Best Eco Lodges

Share |

Sustainability is hot in the travelsphere right now. To get a taste of the green life, why not try one of these stellar eco-lodges, located right in America's back yard?

Post Ranch Inn, California
Ecolodge-pic-post-ranch-innLying among the ridges of the Ventana Mountains at the edge of the Pacific Ocean, the tiny community of Big Suris home to the Post Ranch Inn. Offering stunning views of the ocean and surrounding mountains, Big Sur pampers guests with wood-burning fireplaces, king-sized beds, indoor spa tubs and more. What travelers won’t find, however, are TVs or alarm clocks.

Here, emphasis is placed on the beauty of nature and fragile ecosystem that acts as an amenity within itself. Begin the day with yoga and end with a lesson in astronomy; opportunities are as endless as the area’s shockingly starry sky.

The Lodge & Beach Village, Hawaii

Dubbed the “last Hawaiian Island,” Molokai lies between Oahu and Maui, forty percent of which is owned by the Molokia property.

Known for its unique and eco-friendly activities, Molokai offers guests the opportunity to whale watch, dive, surf, mountain bike, or even ride a mule down the 1,500 foot cliffs to the famed Kalaupapa should you want to do so.
