Love is not canceled. 2020 has come with twists and turns, but many who were anticipating traditional weddings have opted for small intimate gatherings. With that, many who expected to spend their honeymoons in international destinations, are now seeking the comforts of staying within the U.S.A. Our hearts go out to the couples that are still want their own piece of paradise to celebrate their love. Here is a list of some of our favorite resorts to celebrate love in these unique times.


On 14.5 acres of secluded & pristine shoreline, this resort offers a tropical retreat on Key Largo full of sun, sand, sea and spa. Decked out with a beach shack restaurant, ceviche bar, a full-service diner and a sand bar, all your dining needs can be handled on-site. Want to venture out? Head to Islamorada or Key West to get a taste of the local flavor.


Imagine this: sipping a cool cocktail as you make your way from your private bungalow to the pool, while passing the panorama of Camelback Mountain. Later in the day, you head to the spa to massage those COVID cancellation knots away.

This is the social distancing escape that you’ve been looking for.

Now stop dreaming, and just book it.


With just a short 90 minute drive from Boston (or shorter from regional airports), you will arrive at this Kennebunk landmark. Your days could be filled with jumping on a lobster boat and catching your own lunch, enjoying a hosted beach breakfast while watching the sunrise, hopping on bikes to explore the area, and pampering yourself at the hotel spa.

Heaven does exist!



Vail is never a bad idea. Once you’ve cozied up to your private fireplace in the plush hotel robes, you’ll see what we mean. At Sonnenalp, you’ll feel transported to Europe (even if you’ve put the kibosh on your trans-Atlantic plans for now).

If you’re looking for an active honeymoon with a bit of glitz, stop scrolling. Spend your days riding snowmobiles up the mountains or skiing down the fresh powder. Want to relax? Head to the oxygen bar at the spa, order a peppermint schnapps spiked hot chocolate, and hunker down by a roaring fire. Don’t worry about food options here- this resort is plonked right in the center of Vail village and a mere shuttle ride away from surrounding areas.


Montage Palmetto Bluff
South Carolina

They say that nothing beats southern hospitality, and at this Lowcountry resort, we know that to be true. The highlights here are pretty attention getting. The resort perks include access to a nature preserve, two picturesque villages with eight different restaurant options, a riverfront marina, a noteworthy spa, and a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. Once you arrive, you won’t have to worry about touching your car keys until you check out (which, once you experience this place, will be a tough thing to do).


La Serena Villas

At La Serena Villas, boutique means mind-blowing details. We think the pool decor speaks for itself, and if we had to swap our beachside umbrella in Positano for a domestic retreat- here we shall sit! Every foot of this Palm Springs oasis is thoughtfully curated to create a bespoke experience.

The secluded private villas each have a private patio, complete with a romantic claw foot tub, fire-pit, and built in benches. While downtown Palm Springs is just a short walk away, you may not want to go off-site. This resort features 18 guest rooms (read: bookings will go quickly), a spa, restaurant, bar, and a stunning rooftop lounge to enjoy your summer spritz.


Michigan may not be the first location to pop into a honeymooner’s head- but hear us out. This quaint boutique inn has been completely transformed with modern style and pops of color. Mackinac Island has been drawing visitors in for decades with its beautiful scenery, rich history, shopping, and sightseeing. The front porch is the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee (or afternoon rosé), while listening to the clip clop of the carriages on the quiet market street. Your time spent here will be easy,. relaxed, and romantic. Be aware that families are welcome at this spot, but so is your love!


The Spectator Hotel
South Carolina

Y’all (we had to)…. this hotel. This location. When The Spectator came on the Charleston scene, all other hotels must have shuddered. Simply put: they hit the ball out of the park with their amenities, style, and refined approach. You will not have to think once you arrive here, because all that can be done for you by their traditionally trained English butlers. You’ll be greeted with a welcome cocktail, spoiled with 24 hour concierge service, and awoken to breakfast in bed. Right outside the gorgeous brick facade, you’ll be in the heart of Charleston. How’s that for southern charm?


Vintage House

“Rustic elegance and modern sophistication” are the words that Vintage House uses to describe their property. In the heart of Yountville, you’ll never be closer to the vineyards of California than at this intimate hotel. Not only can you spend your nights cozied up with a bottle straight from your favorite vineyard, but you can do so in front of your room’s fireplace. Opt for a bungalow and relax on your own outdoor terrace.

If you need assistance to make your stay one to remember, work with us to help coordinate a private wine tasting tour, a picnic on property, or a hot air balloon ride over the vines of Napa.


Forested cliffs and towering sand dunes meet at this epic corner of the Oregon Coast. Only two hours from the Portland airport, you can easily combine this coastal getaway with a stay in the land of Pinot Noir. The drama of the Pacific will sweep you away in romance, and you will forget all about the world behind you. You’ll spend your days relaxing at the Tidepools Spa, biking along the shore, or hiking in the lush surrounding areas.


Greydon House

With a twist on old world charm, Greydon House comes in hot as a contender for the most gorgeous place to lay your head in Nantucket. They’re “intent on giving guests an unconventional and free-spirited island experience.” Their use of “intent” sets us on fire! The hosts at this beautiful inn will help you make the best use of your time on the island, whether that means popping into the local breweries, biking to lesser known beaches, or picking the perfect spot to dine after a long day of sitting in the sun. You’ll be wondering when is too soon to book your anniversary getaway.

Follow the adventure!
