As we gear up for those precious three day weekends this summer, we design lovers love to find fun places to stay that give us inspiration for our own homes (or at least relief from the projects on our lists!) Here’s a list of places I’ve admired or that are on my “I Want To Go To There” list around the U.S.A. Please add any from your wish list to the Comments section – we’d love to know about them.
The Surf Lodge, Montauk, New York. This groovy spot made quite a splash after its full remodel several years ago. It’s a great spot to relax and enjoy the end of the south fork of Long Island.
The Attwater, Newport Rhode Island. The chic and relaxing interiors were carefully put together by interior designer Rachel Reider. Enjoy a nosh on lemon ginger scones while picking up ideas on mixing patterns. They even have a discount for guest purchases at Vineyard Vines.
King and Groove Tides South Beach, Miami. Get your Kelly Wearstler style on at this Bravura Modern meets Miami Art Deco chic hotel.
Sea Ranch Lodge, Sea Ranch, California. After spending the day hiking the wild beauty of the Northern California coast and admiring the way its iconic designers created architecture that yielded to the landscape, cozy up in groovy and comfy modern rooms at this stunning lodge.
1887 Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island, Michigan. If you are craving something more traditional and ornate, check out the Carleton Varney-designed rooms at The 1887 Grand Hotel. The room above is the Jacqueline Kennedy Suite.
