Located a block off Park City’s main strip, Washington School House was built as a school in 1889 and reopened as a hotel in 2011 with 12 rooms and suites. Guests gravitate toward the main living room and the din- ing room, where they enjoy one of the best breakfasts in town (buttermilk pancakes and a seasonal market scramble) in front of a giant wood-burning fireplace and beneath a chandelier made of antlers and crystals. During the winter, Washington School House staff can arrange snowshoe hikes to Homestead Crater, where the water remains 90 degrees year-round. Once there, travelers can either soak or try stand-up paddleboarding. From $375.
