While I've never been one to pass up a great hotel, traveling is so often about exploring a new place, doing fun activities, and having adventures, so when a room is so OTT you never want to leave it, you know a hotel has created something seriously special. When you see these mountain residences, you'll want to call all your friends up and book a vacation—with the intention of staying in the room the entire time. And you will have literally zero shame about it.

Luxury hotels always offer insane suites and incredibly luxe penthouses, but the Ritz-Carlton in Lake Tahoe, California offers something a little more unique—residences. By the sound of it, you'd think they operate like a timeshare or a vacation rental, but the cool thing about these properties is that they're totally bookable, like a hotel room—but they feel anything but a typical hotel room.

The residences are available in two to four bedrooms, and each one is completely unique. Though they all feature gourmet kitchens, some have sunrooms, others have private balconies, and one even features a two-story great room.

Needless to say, space is not lacking, so this is the ultimate spot for a group or friends or your entire fam. As the term residence would suggest, you really feel like you're in your own private mountain chalet, rather than in the heart of a large, luxury resort. With all the comforts of home and views for actual days, it's the perfect place to haul up for a few days and relax. You could venture out and go hiking, skiing, or mountain biking, but why would you when you've got sweeping views from your living room? Exactly.
