Already dreaming of a summer escape? Now’s the perfect time to start planning—and for Inspirato members living on the East Coast, these five of our favorite destinations will be sure to lend some inspiration to your summer 2019 travels.
Kiawah Island, South Carolina
Though this South Carolina island is a golfer’s paradise, there’s plenty to do on Kiawah and in South Carolina’s Lowcountry for everyone. Perfect for a family getaway, Kiawah is a great place to spot dolphins, try fishing or crabbing, or just hit the beach—many of our Kiawah homes are just a short walk or bike ride from the ocean. And for bigger family gatherings, our newest Kiawah home, Osprey, boasts a guesthouse with its own kitchenette.
Rosemary Beach, Florida
Rosemary Beach could be the perfect gathering place for a summer 2019 family reunion, with homes sleeping up to 16. Rosemary is tucked along Florida’s scenic panhandle and boasts beaches reminiscent of the Caribbean—but located conveniently within the continental U.S. Five of Inspirato’s homes are also located on the WaterColor Resort property, which offers plenty of pools, on-the-water recreation options, and a woodland trail system perfect for a run, bike ride, or a leisurely stroll.
With two stellar destinations in the Inspirato portfolio—Dorado Beach and Bahia Beach—Puerto Rico makes for a convenient tropical getaway. Bahia Beach’s prime waterfront location is tucked next to a rainforest preserve, and Dorado Beach’s rich history of celebrity stays (Laurance Rockefeller, JFK, and Elizabeth Taylor among them) speak to its world-class luxury. Plus, nonstop flights from New York and Washington, D.C., to Puerto Rico’s San Juan International Airport both clock in just under four hours.
A temperate summer climate makes Nantucket an ideal place to wind down for an extended weekend after a long work week. This quintessential East Coast escape offers 82 miles of gorgeous New England beaches, and many of Inspirato’s homes are within walking distance of Nantucket’s charming historic district. Our largest home in Nantucket, Harbor Haven, sleeps 16, and lives up to its name with its own private pool and sauna.
Italy’s fabled wine country is just a short hop over the Atlantic for Inspirato members living on the East Coast. Our rich variety of historic estates and villas—the largest collection of European homes in the portfolio—provide myriad options for exploring Tuscany. Enjoy wine tastings and learn how olive oil is produced. Plus, historic Florence is only a 45-minute drive away.
