You can’t help but love this lodge just for its name. But then add the fact that it is a 15-minute drive from Taos Ski Valley, has a communal kitchen for cooking ramen, and charges just $22 a night for a bunk bed. Or upgrade to a private 10-by-10-foot cabin with a shared bath for $32. And for $3 a day extra, you can get wi-fi. [snowmansion.com]
