Inspirato member Kim Lee has one big reason to travel every year—she takes an annual vacation with a group of eight to 12 of her closest girlfriends. Since joining Inspirato six years ago, Kim has turned to the club to help make that yearly reunion easy and memorable. For their latest trip, the group decided to finally visit a place they’d been dreaming—and hearing glowing reviews—about for years: Rosemary Beach, Florida.
I think it might have been our favorite trip that we have ever been on. Everybody was beyond ecstatic.Kim LeeInspirato member
“We always start by looking at houses that can accommodate the whole group,” Kim said. “Rosemary Beach was always on our bucket list. It’s definitely a hidden gem.”
After browsing through Inspirato’s five homes in the Rosemary Beach and WaterColor communities, Kim and her friends decided on Sugarwhite Cottage, an exceedingly charming, six-bedroom abode “just a hop, skip, and a jump away” from the beach, as Kim described it.
“The house was amazing,” Kim said. Spanning more than 4,000 square feet—plus a separate but attached carriage house—Sugarwhite Cottage is ideal for large groups like Kim’s. The friends spent their long weekend reconnecting over drinks and laughs in the kitchen and family room, as well as on the balconies and wraparound terrace.
But, like on any good vacation, Kim and her friends spent plenty of time exploring their surroundings. Rosemary Beach is known for its peaceful, old-fashioned ambiance, in which the group fully immersed themselves. They cruised the area on bikes, relaxed on the beach, visited a farmers market, and sampled eclectic culinary offerings. “All the restaurants we went to were fantastic and everybody was so friendly,” Kim said.
The trip wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Inspirato’s expert, personalized pre-trip planning. Kim worked with her Care team and on-site concierge to develop the perfect itinerary.
“Our Destination Concierge was spot on,” Kim said. “The suggestions she made were great. She was there to meet us and got everything on our grocery list, and when she couldn’t find one thing, she made a special trip somewhere else to pick it up. She was a lot of fun.”
Kim and her friends’ next girls’ trip is already on the horizon. “We always have our planning meeting in January to plan the next trip,” she said. “We’re looking at going out to California, maybe Newport Coast or Terranea resort in Rancho Palos Verdes.”
Those are only a few of the destinations Kim and her friends have to choose from for their annual getaway.
