Mt. Baldy Lodge is a modest woodsy retreat

The centerpiece of the Southern California playground of Mount Baldy is the popular Mt. Baldy Lodge. This little nest of cabins is the perfect launching point for exploring the area’s challenging hiking trails and ski runs. If you’re looking to completely unwind, bring a book and a bottle and kick back in this woodsy setting that might remind you of a modest Catskills retreat. Horseshoes year-round, and in summer the resort’s pool becomes a gathering place for the tiny community. (1-900-982-1115, www.mtbaldylodge.com) - LOS ANGELES TIMES
