Need to travel this summer, but still want to get work done? Enter the workcation. Whether you're looking for a rustic experience in the middle of nowhere or a modern take on suites hidden within a large city, these six spots provide some viable options to consider as you plan your summer workcation this year.
1. Camp Wandawega
Looking for someplace rustic and packed with vintage charm? Camp Wandawega, located in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, is a remote spot with roots reaching back to 1925 when it began as a hotel during Prohibition. Today, it's an expansive campground complete with log cabins, treehouses, tents, teepees, a lodge, and more. When your working hours have wrapped, you can grab a meal at a variety of on-site eateries, enjoy the grounds, take a swim in the lake, or enjoy endless activities like bonfires, canoeing, or shuffleboard.
2. Ace Hotel Palm Springs
For the mid-century modern fan who doesn't mind a little dry heat, Ace Hotel Palm Springs might fit the bill for your workcation. With a room at this hotel and spa, you can take breaks throughout the day with a visit to the pool or enjoy a massage. Then, when your work is done, you can explore the area with a hike at nearby Joshua Tree or Salvation Mountain.
3. Eagle Ridge Resort
If you're looking for a bit more space during your workcation, you might consider checking out Eagle Ridge Resort in Galena, Illinois. This resort offers furnished homes in a variety of sizes, complete with kitchens, washers and dryers, and fireplaces. There's also an expansive golf course, swim club, and hiking trails on site. With a short drive, you can check out Galena's historic downtown and even find homemade apple pie at several different local shops.
4. The Graham & Co.
If remote locations and minimal, modern decor is your thing, your workcation might be best suited for The Graham & Co., a boutique hotel located in the Catskill region of New York State. When you need a break from work, this 20-room hotel has a swimming pool, rental bikes, and hiking trails that let you explore the area, plus a fire pit and hammocks. Here, you can completely unplug when your day is done.
5. SoBro Guest House
For those who want a workcation that's hassle-free and buckled down, SoBro Guest House in Nashville, Tennessee is ideal. All about convenience, their automated system lets you check in with a simple access code so you can get into your artsy, centrally located suite whenever you're ready. There's no front desk, but there are lots of amenities like grocery delivery and dry cleaning so you can concentrate on work during the day (and exploring Music City at night.)
6. Kimber Modern
High design and central location are top features of Kimber Modern, a boutique hotel located in the SoCo district of Austin, Texas. Here, you'll find beautifully designed suites and lots of places to relax that are walking distance from unique shops and restaurants in downtown Austin. You can put your nose down and work during the day fueled by natural light in your room and then chow down on BBQ or food truck offerings at night.
