With this in mind, we have selected 6 adventures to inspire your wanderlust. From a romantic getaway in a one-of-a-kind architectural gem tucked away in the middle of a forest or an expansive lakeside villa with breathtaking mountain views to a tropical sojourn in a beachfront estate with its own private beach access. There’s something for everyone! Discover more below:
1. Embrace Aspen’s Winter Wonderland
The best time to visit Aspen is between December and February. The reason is a no-brainer: hitting the slopes is this Colorado town’s main attraction. In mid to late February, visitors can enjoy the most optimal ski conditions of the season – another reason to visit Aspen for President’s Weekend 2021. So, here’s a pretty picture: after a day of adventures in the slopes, you head over to our 5-star property Timber. You relax your muscles in the hot tub. Your friends are enjoying a drink by the lake. A private chef cooks a gourmet dinner and you share a meal you’ll probably think about for a while. You finish the night with a movie night in the home theater.
2. Hike Camelback Mountain in Arizona
Located just 20 minutes from downtown Phoenix, Camelback Mountain is one of the area’s most iconic hikes. President’s Weekend 2021 sounds like the perfect time to work out with a view of the desert! The trails have a certain level of difficulty and they ascend to 1,420 feet to a summit resembling the hump of a camel’s back. The views from the top are truly breathtaking. Our property Hackberry is nestled at the base of Camelback Mountain, which means easy access to the trails and gorgeous desert views. Enjoy a drink in the expansive outdoor area or hit the pool if the weather allows it!
3. Forget about the World in Maui or San José de Cabo
If there’s one thing that can help you relieve stress, forget about work, or any issue that you may have, is looking at a sunset from the comfort of your private pool or hot tub. Akamai is ideal for just that. This 5-star property is located in a gated community, which guarantees extra safety and privacy. Plus, its resort-style outdoor area is what beach getaway dreams are made of: like we mentioned before, pool and hot tub, delicious ocean views, and plenty of space to dine, relax, lounge, or sunbathe.
Marisma in San José de Cabo is another great choice. This property also features a pool and boasts unbelievable ocean views. However, one of its key features is its access to a nearby sports park. If working out is your way to unwind, this place has it all: play tennis, baseball, soccer, basketball, or paddleboard.
4. Learn How to Surf in San Clemente
San Clemente, CA, is famous for its world-class surfing. So, how about taking some time during President’s Weekend to try it out for yourself? Experienced, amateur, or beginner: no matter your level of experience, this is the perfect location to do it. And, yes, we have the perfect property for you to stay at during your time here: beautiful Mahogany. The home is impeccably designed, including Mediterranean design accents, open living, dining, and family areas. However, this house is all about what happens outside. The outdoor area includes a 55’ oceanfront pool and a deck where guests can sunbathe and relax.
5. Marvel at World-Class Architecture in Olivebridge
Let’s not forget Valentine’s Day falls during President’s Weekend. Our suggestion for a romantic getaway is a stay at the Tower House, an architectural gem tucked away in a lush forest in Olivebridge, NY. Architecture and design enthusiasts will fall in love with its glass-enclosed stairs, but the area also offers plenty to do. Besides walking around in nature, New York City is easily accessible from the property. So, you have something for everyone!
