One way to beat the heat this summer: Hide out in a cool cave hotel, no a/c required. Click here for the full list.
Sala Silver Mine Hotel
This hotel has only one room-The Mine Suite-situated in what used to be an operating silver mine.
At 509 feet underground, it's the world´s deepest bedroom, and it feels like it: The cave contains winding galleries; huge, water-ﬁlled caverns; and full-on lakes. You'll want to bundle up for the guided tour of the cave (underground temps hover around 35 degrees) but the suite itself is comfy-it's heated, and the bed is piled with thick covers.
Kokopelli's Cave Bed and Breakfast
Farmington, New Mexico
Hide out in this one-bedroom cave home, carved deep into a 65 million-year-old sandstone formation.
At your disposal once you check in: a waterfall shower, Jacuzzi, T.V., and (above-ground) views of the Four Corners states (Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado).
Historic in-room touches-an 80-year-old spinning wheel, a built-in oven pit, 18th-century silk ikat prints-round out the décor at this boutique property in Cappadocia.
