Consolacion.  Teruel, Aragon, Spain.

Spain is bigger than you think — big enough for more than one world-class metropolis, as well as a handful of famous tourist regions and several different official languages. And there’s still room for some seriously out-of-the-way places, of which the Aragonese province of Matarraña is just one. It’s a region that’s traditionally known for its ham, but that’s about to change — world-traveling designophiles will find it’s on their map thanks to a boutique hotel called Consolación. It’s built from the bones of an old hermitage, and the old building still contains a couple of guest rooms and the bulk of the public spaces. But what’s most striking about Consolación is the modern architecture of the outlying guest rooms, each one a wooden cube perched at the edge of the bluff, with one glass wall (and an accompanying terrace) open to the view.

Steal of the century at 101-143 euros/night for a Kube Room.

Austin, Texas.

So I have some mixed feelings about the Kimber Modern, tucked away within the hip SoCo district. Modern, yes. Cozy, not so much. It reminds me of an Ikea hotel…cheap and cheerful, but one jump on the bed, and you might crack the particle board. With 7 rooms, it could be pretty rad for a group trip and take over the entire place.

From $250/night…maybe not so cheap.

LeConner, Washington.

An hour’s drive north of Seattle…another epic glass cabin hung from metal beams with the forest at your fingertips.  It’s like floating amongst the trees, my favorite sensation.

From $275/night.

Sonoma, California.

If you really can’t do the ‘wine country’ look (faux italian marble finishes, grapes painted on coasters, wrought iron wine racks, overstuffed settees with too many fringed pillows), then may I suggest this adorable glass architectural home?  Secluded, simple, utterly modern.  I’ll drink to that.

Sleeps 2 @ $2,600/week.

Inverness, Ca. Where the hell is Inverness? I might go looking for it, tucked behind Marin County and below oyster-shucking Tomales Bay, if it means I can stay here. The furnishings are a wee unfortunate, but if you keep your eyes focused on the incredible roofline and bones of the house, it’ll do just fine. Sleeps 2 (full-sized fold out sofa, lame) for about $250/night + $100/cleaning + 10% tax (super lame).

My  friend, Loren, literally i-messaged me a shot of this place on his recent snowboarding trip to Japan, and 電子ほら (et voilà)here it is for rent!  It’s a massive ski lodge to the modern max, yet has the perfect warm balance of wood, against concrete, against powder.

Sleeps up to 8, from $180/night.  素晴らしい (Awesome)
