The Best Luxury Lodges Designed for Outdoor Adventures
When we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, there comes a time when we need a breath of fresh air. While we can visit a local park for a small taste of what this world has to offer, sometimes a weekend getaway filled with outdoor adventures is the only solution to the stresses of our daily grinds.
Especially if you live in a big city, it can be easy to forget about the natural beauty that surrounds you. However, taking time to admire the natural wonders and explore the outdoor activities that are unique to your state will give you an entirely new perspective on your home.
We are here to help you plan a getaway full of outdoor adventure without sacrificing high-quality amenities.
Collective Retreats Luxury Lodges
At Collective Retreats, we never want our guests to be forced to choose between outdoor adventure and luxurious accommodations.
As our guest, you will have access to intimate outdoor adventures that reflect the wonders and attractions of the area. Even better than a luxury lodge, our accommodations provide a complete indoor/outdoor experience to immerse you in the beauty of nature.
You could enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner with gourmet mealsf. Using not-notch ingredients, your meals will provide you will the energy needed for a day of exploring.
Meanwhile, your days can be filled with outdoor activities and excitement, and your afternoons can be spent embracing wellness offerings that help you re-center after a long week in the office. Finally, your mornings and evenings will be wonderfully restful in your own high-quality tent that reflects the accommodation space of a five-star hotel.
Luxury Accommodations With Lush Beds
While each Collective Retreats location has unique accommodation options, our most popular choice is the Summit Tent. The Summit Tent is temperature-controlled to keep you comfortable year-round, no matter when adventure calls you.
For a peaceful and relaxing start to your morning, you can take your cup of tea out onto your private deck that’s located just outside your front door. Feeling the fresh air as you watch the sunlight illuminate the surrounding foliage is a transformative experience you won’t soon forget.
After a day of exciting adventures, rinse off under your rain-style shower located in your en-suite bathroom. Complete your skincare routine at the vanity setup before turning off the lights and plugging in your phone with the bedside outlets. Finally, tuck yourself into your king-sized bed, dressed with high thread-count linens, for a night of undisturbed sleep.
There are Collective Retreats locations across the country, giving you plenty of choices for your luxury vacation. Here are some of our favorite spots and the outdoor adventures that come alongside them.
