Fine food and finesse on the threshold of Yosemite National Park: That's the résumé of this 12-room cultivated cocoon, a Relais & Châteaux hotel. The spa is tiny (only four treatment rooms) but a gem, done in Art Deco with bona fide period furnishings. Inside the château there are stoked fireplaces, tactile textures, wing chairs, and antique beds. The perfect place for dreamin' on a winter's day. — G.W.
