Baja California Sur, Mexico | Sleeps 14
The journey to Black Bass Lodge, a far-flung, beachfront getaway, is an adventure in itself. "There's no easy or quick way to get there, but it's well worth it when you arrive," property co-owner Holly Berkley says. To reach this off-the-grid, oceanfront escape, guests have the option of making a 13- to 14-hour drive from San Diego through the deserts of Baja or hopping a flight to Loreto, Mexico. From Loreto, it's another five hours by car. (And some guests make the journey by private boat.) "The challenging journey is what leaves this small town virtually untouched by tourism, and provides abundant fishing, excellent surf conditions — and you'll have the beaches all to yourself," Berkley says. The lodge comes with a chef who prepares three meals a day and full staff waiting to make sure your stay is memorable. The nightly rate may seem steep but you get an entire lodge to yourself.
