Secluded hotel experiences for sexy sex and romance and nature
August 10, 2016 9:12 AM   Subscribe

Where in North America are the most secluded (meaning very private rooms or separate cabins) and romantic resorts and hotels, with gorgeous atmosphere?

Dream resort setup:
-Secluded/private accommodations
-Pretty atmosphere
-Good for fall/winter weather (less so summery-beachy escapes, but those are good to know about too)
-Not totally disconnected from tech? Cell service/WiFi a bonus
-Good eats on-site or nearby
-Sweet amenities like jacuzzi tubs and steam showers and balconies and whatnot
-Northeast US location would be handy, but open to all over North America for the sake of varied choices

I recall a while back that someone mentioned a place (in PA? maybe in the Poconos?) that had 8-12 individual cabins on site, some with jacuzzis on the outer deck, and if anyone knows that place, that'd be great.

But I also just want to know what are the best spots that hit as many of those bullet points as possible. We like to be alone and probably have loud weird sex and don't want to disturb anyone. And want to see some nice nature from the balcony/window/deck whenever we take a break from all that.

No budget. Go wild.

Thanks!

Sybaris in the midwest (WI/IL/IN) is nice; I've been to the Mequon WI one, which is 20min from everything Milwaukee has to offer but is quite secluded in a somewhat wooded area. It may not satisfy your "nice in winter" requirement though.

You want the vacation rentals at Sea Ranch. (The lodge isn't too shabby either, but the vacation rentals are more private.)

The cottages at The Woolverton Inn tick all your boxes. I've had a great time in The Sojourn Loft which has a hammock next to the jacuzzi. But all the cottages there are great. The dining options nearby - in Lambertville and New Hope, etc. - are great.

Cottages at Twin Farms. (Vermont)

In Millersburg, Ohio, smack in the middle of Amish country. Google it, and look at images. Winters here can be lovely, and there's skiing nearby. The cottages are built into the hillside, very lovely and unique!

This place ticks off a lot of your requirements!

Sorensens, south of Lake Tahoe. Seconding a Sea Ranch rental!

Oh, a caveat about Sorensens: The elevation is nearly 7000 feet there, and that can have an effect, especially if you normally live at sea level.

Look no further than the Fogo Island Inn on Fogo Island in Newfoundland.

In Utah, Amangiri is extravagant and they have suites and a private home to rent.

From the website: Secluded by a rock escarpment and surrounded by 600 acres of undeveloped land, the four-bedroom Mesa Home offers consummate privacy just minutes from the resort. It has been designed to complement the rugged beauty of the Grand Circle Region, with a pared-back aesthetic and muted palette. A 50-foot infinity pool is set into an expansive stone terrace

I can not speak as a personal recommendation, but Glenlaurel in Ohio is on our to-do list for pretty much the same reasons you're looking for. (So I'm following this thread closely.)

FWIW, we stayed in a cabin in the Poconos for our honeymoon (hot tub, sauna, pool in cabin) and while it's been decades I've always compared the site to "Dirty Dancing meets The Shining."

Not to threadsit, but I think the answers of two of my previous questions might help?
Cabin or B&B with privacy within 4 hours of Pittsburgh
Cabin rentals as part of resorts

Did I mention looking for the same kind of travel as you? ;-)

The various Cove resorts in the Poconos (bonus points for the cheeseball factor).

There's also the tree houses at Primland.

Had some secluded sexy times here.
I go back tomorrow!

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Big Sur yet - lots of options for secluded cabins in one of the most glorious natural spots in the world. Good food and wine options exist in every direction. Just imagine a few nights here, for instance.

How about a private cabin with private hot tub overlooking the ocean? Try Point no Point on Vancouver Island. A little out of the way, but you save a bit with the lower Canadian dollar.

Esalen is a very special place - the secluded seaside location is gorgeous, the cliffside hot tubs are spectacular and open all night, the food is organic and fantastic, and it comes with a side of California groove. (Probably want to wait until after the Soberanes wildfires are over, of course.)

Its been awhile... I'll share a favorite for NorCal folks: Mankas in Inverness. Sublime.
