Best Places I’ve Stayed
All of these places I would whole heartedly recommend to anyone. They were wonderful, either for me on my solo trips, me and my husband, or my family of five.
- Cabo San Lucas: The Ridge at Playa Grande
This resort has the most amazing vanishing-edge pool elevated high up to offer views of the Pacific Ocean and a small slice of paradise. There are many restaurants available, pool side bars, and a myriad of lounging areas. Located right on the beach, The Ridge offered it all.
- Great Smoky Mountains: Peaceful Studio with Mountain View
I stayed here alone for two nights in 2019 and it was perfect. Although the exterior of the complex looks a little run- down, the interior is very well maintained. The small patio has an astounding view of the mountains, and it is about a 20 minute drive from the park. The unit is very tastefully decorated, and is extremely cozy. It was perfect for my rainy fall visit.
- Estes Park, Colorado: Eagle Cliff Escape
This has to be the cutest house I have ever stayed in. The exposed wood, the live edge counter-tops, the light fixtures…all of it just was perfect for my taste. The large patio looking at a mountain and the proximity to RMNP and Estes Park
- Zion National Park, Utah: The Ark Tiny House
This tiny house is located nearby (about a 15 minute drive) to Zion National Park. It offers gorgeous sweeping views of the canyon, is located in a secluded area, and has all the amenities a house would have (and more). My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon and it was perfect for that short duration of time. The owners are very friendly and have built all three of the tiny homes on the property themselves, and I believe they are still currently making additions. The teal accents inside the home and modern appliances makes it feel luxury, while the coziness of the wood exterior and roofing makes it homey.
- Annapolis, Maryland: Cozy Naptown Perch
This two-bedroom in-law suite in Annapolis was SUCH a steal! I stayed here once while visiting my now-husband at the Naval Academy and I wish I had found this place sooner! It is walking distance from downtown Annapolis, was very affordable for the area (at least when I stayed), very clean and well-kept, private, and about a 20 minute walk from the Naval Academy. The neighborhood it is located in felt very safe and the hosts were very accommodating and friendly.
- Orange Beach, Alabama: Grand Pointe Condominiums
My family stayed here for at least three consecutive years. It is located at the end of the Romar beach condo strips, right up against Perdido Pass. This allows it to be a little bit less crowded, with the same accessibility to the beach and restaurants.
