Itching for a nature getaway this spring? I know we are! Explore the outdoors and shack up in a log cabin in Utah's Zion National Park. Set just outside of Mount Zion National Park, the Zion Ponderosa in Mount Carmel, Utah, offers simple (but air-conditioned) log-cabin accommodations. The major draw here is the arresting setting among sandstone cliffs and canyons, and the outdoor amenities, from tennis courts and a pool to horseback riding and rock climbing.

THE CATCH: Blackout dates include April 21 to 25.
THE DETAILS: Rates start from $159 a night before the discount through May 21. Call 800-239-5444 and mention code SLTM2011. zionponderosa.com
