Secluded Vacation Ideas

Secluded Vacations #1:

Get away from it all at Moosehead Lake in the heart of Maine’s wild country. Outdoor activities abound in this pristine mountain vacation spot close to the Canadian border. The land may be primitive but you can vacation in rustic comfort at two great wilderness lodges. There are the Birches on Moosehead Lake and the Lodge at Moosehead Lake. These two lodges are both excellent secluded vacation ideas.

You can just relax and enjoy the mountain scenery if that’s your plan. Or, better yet, get out and enjoy some outdoor activities.

You can do it on your own or there’s plenty of help from the lodges.

They both have trips and excursions available such as overnight kayak trips, backcountry yurt-based skiing and hiking trips, guided salmon and trout fishing.

How about a moose safari or a river float-plane trip? There are lots of adventurous outdoor things to do year round at the Birches on Moosehead Lake and the Lodge at Moosehead Lake.

Secluded Vacations #2:

Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge, in Alaska, is about as secluded as it gets. The lodge is located on Tutka Bay which is protected from much of the harsh coastal Alaskan weather by the Kenai Mountains.

The waters of the bay are relatively quiet and home to sea otters, bald eagles and other wildlife. The location is rough and secluded but the lodge provides a comfortable oasis from which to explore and play in the wilderness. Guides are available for hiking and kayaking as well as naturalists who can instruct you on the local terrain and wildlife.

If you enjoy fishing the lodge can arrange for a deep sea fishing trip for trophy size halibut. Bear viewing trips are also a popular excursion. There are 2 miles of nature trails on site so you can explore on your own viewing the wildlife and taking some great photos. Consider the Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge for your secluded vacation ideas.

Secluded Vacations #3:

Three hours from Calgary, in British Columbia, Canada is the remote Purcell Lodge. How remote is it? Well, you fly in by helicopter. In fact, all the material to build this comfortable lodge had to be flown in by helicopter. Their power comes from the sun and from the rushing waters of the nearby streams. Even the trash is flown out by heli. That makes the Purcell Lodge a very eco-friendly vacation idea.

A wonderful feature of the lodge is the top floor guest rooms with balconies that provide great views of the surrounding Canadian wilderness. Activities here revolve around the 20 miles of well developed trails. These trails are in use year round for hiking in the summer and snowshoeing or cross-country skiing, in the winter. Skiers and snowboarders will also find plenty of great action around the lodge. The lodge provides guides for all your activities and they can also provide your gear and, if needed, instructors.

Secluded Vacations #4:

If Florida is on your radar for vacation ideas, but you want something different from the Disney experience, take the family to the secluded Steinhatchee Landing Resort.

This is how Florida used to be a hundred years ago. Located on the scenic Steinhatchee River in Southern Florida, the resort features old Florida style cottages with large screened porches and tin roofs. No need to worry about restaurants, you can feed the family with the full kitchen or cook out on the outside grill. This is the kind of place where you can let the kids run loose on the 35 acres of resort property.

You are right on the riverbank so there are lots of quiet secluded spots to drop a line and catch some fish. Rent a canoe or kayak and get out on the river. Or rent a bike and explore the surrounding trails. Another plus is that there is no need to leave the pet pooch home as dogs less than 28 pounds are welcome.

Secluded Vacations #5:

Rock climbing and river kayaking are the two big draws for visitors at New York’s Adirondack Rock and River Lodge. Throw in skiing (the Jackrabbit Ski Trail is practically in your lap) and lots of backcountry hiking and you’ve got loads of outdoor fun at your fingertips. The lodge is home to the Rock and River Guide Service which is in the business of providing you with whatever you need to safely and successfully enjoy all these outdoor recreational activities.

For secluded vacation ideas, the Adirondack Rock and River Lodge fits the bill. It’s located deep in the six million acre wilds of Adirondack Park in New York State. The lodge is surrounded by the wild Adirondack Mountains. The lodge is actually an 1800’s homestead which has been beautifully rebuilt maintaining the full flavor of its past. Year round, you can come here for an outdoor adventure vacation and a secluded getaway.
