When most travelers think about heading to the beach, they probably imagine a tropical destination like Costa Rica or Turks and Caicos. And while the Inspirato Collection includes dozens of homes and hotel partners in beautiful, exotic beach destinations, it also offers accommodations located on the world’s most popular lakes. Summertime is the perfect season to take advantage of the abundant recreation that these destinations have to offer. Keep reading to learn more.
Lake Como, Italy
One of the world’s most famous and prestigious bodies of water, Lake Como features gorgeous scenery and some of Italy’s most exclusive accommodations. Throughout the summer, warm temperatures and sunny conditions are complemented by gentle breezes from the mountains surrounding the water. That creates perfect conditions for a charming, romantic meal overlooking the lake at one of the area’s many acclaimed restaurants. Inspirato’s two homes in Lake Como are located right on the water and feature private docks, so visitors can easily hop onto a boat and cruise the iconic lake.

Valle de Bravo, Mexico
This hidden gem of a vacation destination is located next to Lago Avándaro, about 87 miles west of Mexico City. Locals have descended upon the lovely village for generations, enjoying both the abundant aquatic recreation and the village’s charming cobblestone streets. Top activities include kayaking, sailing, water skiing, and fishing, but staying on land for a hike or bike ride is just as enticing. Inspirato travelers can stay at our Casa Bravo home, a stunning hacienda with its own private dock on Lago Avándaro. Enjoy the view from the private pool and large patio.
Lake Michigan, Michigan
Michigan’s Harbor Country, an approximately 15-mile stretch on Lake Michigan’s southeastern shore, encompasses many charming towns teeming with family-friendly entertainment. Think Nantucket or Cape Cod, but on a lake. Fishing, boating, bike rides, and picnics on the beach are all popular activities. Inspirato’s Grand Beach Estate, a 9,000-square-foot home, features lovely views of the lake and, even better, is mere steps from a sandy beach. With seven bedrooms, the estate can accommodate up to 14 guests, making it an excellent choice for multiple families or groups of friends to enjoy the pleasant summer season all under one roof.
Beautiful house with a great view of Lake Michigan… has a pool and you can walk down to the lake to swim there too. Great location for brewery trips, apple orchard, and pumpkin patch.Sean LannanInspirato member
Lake Tahoe, California
Northern California’s beloved Lake Tahoe is a skier’s mecca during the winter, but it’s just as thrilling to visit in the summer. Sailing on the astonishingly clear blue water is a must-do, while hiking on the area’s many trails provides breathtaking views of the scenery. There are several spectacular golf courses, as well as a kid-friendly mini-golf course in Northstar village. Inspirato offers accommodations in two distinct areas of Lake Tahoe: Squaw Valley and Northstar, with options ranging from mountainside resort condos to a four-bedroom lodge-inspired home.

Lake Travis, Texas
Sprawling Lake Travis has been a beloved summer vacation destination for years. Located in the idyllic Texas Hill Country just west of Austin, the lake attracts scores of visitors for boating, paddleboarding, kayaking, and other exciting water sports that help cut the hot summer weather. The area is also home to great hiking and al fresco dining—preferably with some famous Texas barbecue. Inspirato travelers stay right on the lake in one of two large homes that can accommodate as many as 14 guests. View all Lake Travis luxury accommodations.
