Thanksgiving is all about spending time with your loved ones – ideally over a festive feast. Start a new tradition this year and head out of town to enjoy quality family time, prepare a delicious dinner and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the USA.

Here are five cosy stays that will make you feel extra grateful this Thanksgiving.

Big Bear Lake, California

Soak in nature at this dreamy retreat

If you’re looking for a relaxing retreat, then this Dream Getaway with Secluded Spa in Big Bear Lake is the perfect destination. The cabin can accommodate six guests, plus it features a spacious kitchen for preparing your Thanksgiving dinner.

Sip your morning coffee on the terrace and enjoy the mountain views before heading out on a hike through one of the nearby parks. Or just stay in – after all, the real highlight is a private hot tub tucked away in the forest, waiting for you to unwind amidst the trees.

La Follette, Tennessee

Embrace crisp autumn evenings with a family campfire

Minnies Mountain Lake House has the charm of a wood cabin, but with all the modern touches you need for a comfortable holiday.

Located in La Follette, the home is beautifully designed with rustic decor and both indoor and outdoor amenities to keep the whole family busy. The lakehouse features a large terrace with mountain views, hot tub, pool table, fully equipped kitchen and space to sleep 10 people.

Green Mountain Falls, Colorado

Explore the natural beauty of Colorado this Thanksgiving

Against the backdrop of the dramatic Colorado mountains, you’ll find the cute town of Green Mountain Falls and Cozy CO Rocky Mountain Retreat Near Pikes Peak!

This home is just a short drive from Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak and plenty of other nature to explore – making it an idyllic homebase for hikers or anyone looking to enjoy the crisp mountain air. This two-bedroom home has room for up to six guests and a kitchen that’s ready to handle any holiday feast preparations.

Beech Mountain, North Carolina

Have your holiday dinner with a forest view this year

Beech Mountain Retreat with 2 Decks and Mountain View! is a two-storey home with terraces that seems to float among the trees of Beech Mountain – like your own private treehouse. With space for seven people, this house is filled with rustic charm, plenty of natural light and two wood-burning fireplaces to curl up next to in the evenings.

This forest escape may feel secluded, but there are still modern amenities to keep the whole family happy – including a PlayStation console and a fully equipped kitchen that makes cooking a delight.


Enjoy a peaceful Pacific Northwest holiday in this beautiful home

The mist-shrouded mountains of the Pacific Northwest are the perfect escape into nature. And at Riverside Retreat on Skagit River in Concrete, you can let the sounds of a rushing river wash away your stress.

This stylish home sleeps six guests and is designed with relaxation in mind – from its sleek furniture to the well-stocked coffee bar. Kick back beside the firepit with mountain views, or head to the games room for a little friendly competition.
