Taxhof, Bruck, Austria
Set on a pristine mountaintop smack in the middle of the Austrian Alps, this centuries-old inn is a gloriously quiet respite 15 minutes away from the busy resorts of Kitzsteinhorn and Schmittenhöhe—known for their daring glacier ski trails. Handed down from father to son for 12 generations, the Taxhof blends the best of both worlds, combining the fairy-tale charm of a rustic chalet with modern amenities. We love the Dochbodnsuite—located in the renovated top floor of an ancient farmhouse, it features an en suite sauna, atrium-like windows and skylights for panoramic views, and a cozy rooftop terrace. 15 Hundsdorf; 43/6545-6261; taxhof.at; doubles from $135.
Don’t Miss: Go tobogganing in the moonlight at Kohlschnait, where you’ll also find an artisan brewery and bakery.
