Hasbrouck House, New York

If New York City is called the city that never sleeps, then Hasbrouck House is the place to slow down and catch up on that beauty rest. This bucolic Hudson Valley stay couldn’t get more charming: suites are spread out between a stately 18th-century Dutch Colonial mansion and its former carriage and stable houses, which all sit on 150 acres of land. Spend your days strolling the grounds, curling up with a good book on the bluestone patio, as well as tucking into farm-to-fork bites and local ciders at the on-site restaurant, Butterfield.

Brush Creek Ranch, Wyoming

Channel your inner John Wayne at this luxe dude ranch in Wyoming. Brush Creek sits on 30,000 private acres in Platte River Valley, overlooking the prairies and Rocky Mountains in the distance. Brush up on your cowboy skills by horseback riding on the 50 miles of equestrian trails, or try your hand at fly-fishing, archery and more. Prefer to be pampered? Head to the Trailhead Spa where treatments are given in teepees. When hunger strikes, you can indulge in a three-course dinner at the rustic-chic dining room, grab a drink at the saloon (which has Wild West-style swinging doors), or eat a gourmet campfire meal under the stars. As for your room: choose between a private log cabin or a room in the main Trailhead Lodge—done up with 28-foot ceilings and a roaring open fireplace to resemble the original 1884 homestead.

Travaasa Austin, Texas

Just 30 minutes outside Austin, the 210-acre Travaasa in the Balcones Canyonlands is a zen retreat with a Texan twist. Sure, you can detox with yoga classes, reiki sessions, and even life coaching, but we suggest you embrace the Lone Star style by signing up for one of the 40-plus activities, including mechanical bull riding lessons and hatchet throwing workshops. If you’d rather take it slow, start with the “heart starter” hike to Lake Travis, followed by a hands-on cooking demo, and ending the afternoon with a few laps in the infinity pool and a quick snooze in the poolside cabanas.

Twin Farms, Vermont

The all-inclusive Twin Farms resort takes countryside getaway to whole new level. The 18th-century farmhouse was once the home of Nobel Prize winning novelist Sinclair Lewis, and today, it’s transformed into a five-star Relais & Châteaux stunner. Picture this: a Japanese bathhouse and 10 cozy cottages (with wood-burning fireplaces and screened porches) tucked away in the trees on 300 forested acres. Outdoor enthusiasts can hike (or ski) the hotel’s private slopes, canoe on Copper Pond, and even enjoy a personal champagne picnic in one of the shady meadows. To top it off: this summer, guests can enroll in a craft cocktail class and one-on-one cooking courses with renowned chef Nathan Rich.

Primland, Virginia

Immerse yourself in nature at Primland, a 12,000-acre escape in southern Virginia. Here, you can stay in an adults-only treehouse built high in the oaks or opt for a two-story cabin with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the Blue Ridge Mountains. In case the view from the room is not enough, there’s also an onsite Observatory Dome for stargazing. During the daytime, you can go mountain bike on part of the Old Appalachian Trail, hit the links at the world-class golf course designed by Donald Steel, or bliss out with a Native American healing treatment at the 1,800-square-foot spa.

Las Alcobas, California

Next is one of our favorite types of country: wine country. Las Alcobas borders the historic Beringer Vineyards (Napa’s oldest winery), giving oenophiles a front-row seat to the action. The look—courtesy of designer Yabu Pushelberg—is all understated elegance, seen in the spa-like bathrooms and terraces with fireplaces or soaking tubs. And when you’re not tasting the region’s reds, unwind at the saltwater pool or the cedar-beamed spa’s aromatherapy bar.

Blackberry Farm, Tennessee

Calling all foodies: Blackberry Farm is for you. On 4,200 acres of farmland in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, the property is a culinary destination in its own right. At its heart is The Barn, a two-time James Beard Award winner and one of the pioneers of the farm-to-table movement. The restaurant sources all the ingredients itself, with vegetables grown from its gardens, fresh milk and cheese from its livestock, and wild mushrooms and berries foraged from the surrounding area. As for booze, there’s a 160,000-bottle wine cellar as well as a lauded brewery, which even uses sour cherries and persimmons picked fresh for its beers. And if you want a personal tour, just ask the resident cheesemaker, chocolatier, or butcher to show you around behind-the-scenes.

Under Canvas Zion, Utah

For a true slice of Americana, there’s nothing quite like road tripping out West. Under Canvas Zion gets you up close and personal with one of the country’s most Instagrammed landscapes. The luxury camp—which also has outposts in Yellowstone, Glacier, and Grand Canyon—spans 196 acres on the edge of Zion National Park. But don’t worry, you won’t be roughing it: tents are kitted out with a king bed, wood stove and a private deck. Not sold on glamping just yet? Rock climbing, canyoneering, and hot air ballooning in Utah’s dramatic desert is sure to sell you.
