Greyfield Inn, Cumberland Island, Georgia

If you like packing your finest evening wear along with your bathing suit, this grand old Southern inn will give you occasion to wear both. Sit on the porch of your cottage and sip a cocktail as the sun drops into the Spanish moss. Facilities are limited on the island, so the inn is your go-to for meals, guides, and any other services.

Field trip: You’re on your own with kayaks, bikes, and fishing gear provided. Or take the naturalist-led sunrise shorebird excursion to the south end of the island.

Night out: Rates include dinner in the lodge. Put on your finery and delicately dig in to fresh blue crab, shrimp, and red snapper—probably caught that day.

Rates: from $395, includes three meals and tours; 866/401-8581 or greyfieldinn.com
