Moorings Village Resort Islamorada, Florida

2 of 14

Equidistant from the buzzing streets of Miami and Key West, the Moorings Village is the place to bask in blissful solitude—with 18 cottages and an equal number of acres on this former coconut plantation, your brood has ample room to roam. Kayaks and hammocks dot the 1,100-foot white-sand beach, and local waters are an angler’s mecca. Cook up your catch in your private kitchen, a staple in each cottage.

Guest Tip: “We like to head across the road to the resort’s Morada Bay Beach Café , which faces west over the water,” says Ruth Ann McSpadden, who’s been taking her family to the Moorings Village for 17 years—and even modeled the back porch of their home in Long Island, New York, after it. “They serve drinks in mason jars with glow sticks, so the sunsets are downright magical.”

(Cottages from $375.)
