    The New River Gorge National River is a 70,000-acre playground with some of the best whitewater in the east, 1,600 climbing routes, and a maze of mountain biking trails.

    The Little Nell, Aspen, Colorado

    The Nell was pampering pooches long before “pet-friendly” became a hotel selling point and it’s still a master at giving canines the 5-star treatment. Besides amenities like water dishes, beds, gourmet doggie biscuits, and brass ID tags, pups also get their own menu, which includes beef tenderloin, scrambled eggs, salmon, and brown rice. No, you can’t try a bite. Doubles from $465 a night. thelittlenell.com

    Trapp Family Lodge, Stowe, Vermont

    This euro-inspired mountain resort includes everything a dog needs, including water and food dishes, a bed, and plenty of treats. But the best perk is open access to much of the lodge’s 2,500 acres of mountaintop terrain so your furry companion can work off all those biscuits. Owners can earn their meals on 37 miles of private (and dog-free) hiking and Nordic skiing trails. Doubles from $195 a night. trappfamily.com
