Natural Retreats Vacation Rentals Get Families Outdoors
Have you ever gone on a vacation and returned feeling more stressed or tired than when you left? We think taking a break from work, home and day-to-day life should be just that: a break. That’s why we love the concept behind Natural Retreats, a luxury travel company specializing in spectacular, unique destinations, where families can reconnect with nature and get back to the basics.
Natural Retreats’ CEO, Matt Spence, grew up in the British countryside and wanted to create a company that would combine the simple beauty of the outdoors with adventure-based activities such as heli-skiing and fly fishing to bring families together for vacations that are truly memorable.
Two years after launching in the U.K., Natural Retreats’ expanded to the U.S. Since then, they have launched 15 spectacular destinations across the country in gorgeous locations like Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Teton Valley, Idaho, and Daufuskie Island, South Carolina, just to name a few.
What makes Natural Retreats different? Natural Retreats is a breath of fresh air — literally. A guided fishing trip, white water rafting, horseback riding on the beach and heli-skiing are just some of the incredible activities that Natural Retreats has to offer.
The best part? Natural Retreats’ Xplore Team (aka travel agents who climb mountains on their lunch breaks) help guests plan the trip of their dreams so vacations aren’t just a destination, but somewhere to remember.
Everyone from the CEO to the expert fishing guides at South Fork Lodge embody the culture of infectious fun, respect for nature preservation, and, of course, adventure in the great outdoors.
Even better, Natural Retreats’ accommodations are luxurious rental homes and villas, which are able to accommodate large families and multigenerational trips. Families can reconnect both in the outdoors and in a comfortable home-like environment, complete with kitchens and dining spaces, for home-cooked meals, and large living areas and bedrooms.
Natural Retreats’ properties can be found in the U.S., Ireland and the U.K. To learn more, visit theNatural Retreats website. You can also learn more about U.S. rental opportunities and accommodations here:
