BLISTER Lodges

Blister Lodges Logo

BLISTER Lodges is a collection of some of our favorite places, and our answer to the question, “What’s the best place to stay around here?”

Some of the lodges, hostels, and hotels on this list are fairly expensive, some are pretty cheap. But in every case, these places made our list because they have a great story, or they’re a really good value, or because we think they’re worth the price.

And just as with each of our BLISTER Shops, we are going to reevaluate this list each year to ensure that it stays interesting and up to date.

BLISTER Lodges support our mission to produce fully honest, independent reviews, and enable us to remain 100% free of manufacturer dollars. This is an invitation-only list, and no undeserving lodge gets to buy its way on.

So check these places out, and tell them we sent you. Then let us know how it goes, whether your experience was good or bad. Your feedback is an important part of our review process.
