IF YOU LIVE IN NEW ENGLAND…

Head to the shores of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, to stay at the quaint Little Miss Cottages, which are just a two-minute walk from the seven-mile stretch of sandy beach. Each lodge has its own outdoor seating area and gas grill, plus access to the communal fire pit. You can also rent paddleboards, shop the local boutiques or visit the museums.

IF YOU LIVE IN THE TRI-STATE AREA…

Visit North Harbor Montauk, a modern loft-style condo situated on Long Island’s Lake Montauk where you can take in the gorgeous views from the outdoor deck. With this rental, you’re given membership access to the exclusive marina, which boasts a pool, kayaks, sailboats and fitness center. What’s more, this condo isn’t far from other great sites like Montauk Downs State Park and the Montauk Lighthouse.

IF YOU LIVE IN THE MIDWEST…

Set out to the Heart Lake Cottages in Gaylord, Michigan. This little network of homes sits among the tall pines, oaks and maple trees on the western shore of the lake. Guests can enjoy kayaking, fishing, golfing, fire pits and lakeside picnic tables and grills. We suggest waking up early to experience the spectacular sunrises for yourself.

IF YOU LIVE IN THE MOUNTAIN STATES…

The Wild West Retreat in Escalante, Utah, is your best bet if you’re looking for all-around fun. The remodeled cabin and barn, originally built in 1920 and 1930, respectively, offer cozy accommodations, including a wood-burning stove and a private yard with a barbecue. Explore the picturesque surroundings by going on hikes through the Dixie National Forest, riding ATVs and horses or canyoneering in the Grand Staircase National Monument.

IF YOU LIVE IN THE PACIFIC…

Quick, book your weekend at Sonoma’s Best Guest Cottages in Sonoma, California. Choose from four rental homes located a convenient 15-minute walk away from the historic Sonoma Plaza and the area’s finest wineries. Grab a sandwich or a cheese platter from the on-site café and relax in the courtyard garden while sipping your favorite Cabernet Sauvignon. (We know where you’ll be all weekend.)

IF YOU LIVE IN THE SOUTHEAST…

Journey out to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for a laid-back weekend spent at the colorful Flamingo House. Whether you plan a family cookout on the outdoor patio or visit one of the many local marinas just a couple miles away, nothing beats a little Florida sunshine.
