We all need a little break sometimes. For a true relaxing holiday, however, sometimes your ordinary beach resort just won’t do. In the tiny town of Camp Nelson (population: 97), you really feel like you’re getting away from it all. Fresh mountain air, lush forests and breathtaking views probably make this the most peaceful and relaxing place on earth. Unlike many worn-out lodges that you usually find in the mountains, Camp Nelson Lodge is a very pleasant surprise. All rooms have a designated theme but share the same warm decor and homey feeling. You won’t find a phone, television set or even a hair dryer, but you do get a big luxurious bed with comfy down pillows and a beautiful soft quilt for cold nights. After a day of hiking, fishing or some of the other activities available, you can sit on the balcony to watch the sunset and take in the quietness of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are just around the corner and are definitely worth a visit too. So…leave your cell phone and laptop at home and immerse yourself in the beauty and peacefulness of Camp Nelson; we promise you will feel reborn.
