17 Rooms with Spectacular Views

If you’re lucky enough to live on the water or in a mountain range, I hope you have a room with a view. But even if you live on the prairie, you can enjoy pretty views outside your window. Here’s a collection of 17 rooms with spectacular views that will take your breath away!

Mountain Views

My first trip to the Rocky Mountains involved lodging at a camp that had a spectacular view of the mountains the moment you stepped out the cabin door. If you’re going to live in a mountainous region, you might as well enjoy a room with mountain views.

Waterfront Views

If given a choice, I think most people would opt for a waterfront view above all others. Not everyone of course, but there’s something so soothing about the sight and sound of water. It’s one of the reasons I have a pond and waterfall in my backyard.

All I can think of when I see this bathroom photo is waving to the boats from the bath tub as they sail by!

City Views

A friend of a friend livea in the Gold Coast area of Chicago. You know, the same neighborhood as Oprah. He graciously gave us a tour of his high-rise apartment which was fabulous. He enjoyed both a city view and a lake view depending on which window you were looking out of. It was a bit magical, to be honest.

Forest and Garden Views

The last category when it comes to rooms with spectacular views is forest and garden views. A garden view is something you can create for your own home if you don’t enjoy seeing water, mountains, or cityscapes out your window.

    The mountains with a stream, i have relatives that live on properties that have little streams of clear water and mountains in the background, i love to visit them. Thanks for these beautiful pictures.

  2. All the views are amazing, but I would have to choose a water view. While I love trees and mountains and all aspects of nature, bur some reason I’m drawn to water. I guess my very very early ancestor was a frog. 🙂

  3. Kim Lennie says:

    I love all views but I think my most favorite is forest/garden views for there is always something going on whether it be butterflies, birds or silly critters like squirrels. I live in the suburbs of a city and I have lots of entertainment with all that nature has to offer which surprises me everyday.

    Number 3 mountain view is pretty incredible! But I sure do like YOUR backyard view!!
