If a quaint little place on the beach sounds like an ideal vacation plan, book now and start counting down the days.
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
