Satellite Island

Located in the D'Entrecasteaux Channel between mainland Tasmania and Bruny Island, Satellite Island is a private escape getaway unspoiled by the likes of the public. The whale-shaped landmass takes around an hour and a half to walk around, whether you're on the high path, or walking the ancient rock shelf at low tide. You can stay at the Summer House, which has room for 12 guests, or enjoy proximity to the water at the more intimate Boathouse — the choice is yours, since you have the entire island to yourself. No matter where you rest your head, you'll be welcomed with a bottle of champagne and a bucket of oysters, and can avail yourself of the free-range eggs, garden, and fruits of the sea, or have the caretaker Richard run you into town for more traditional fare like wallaby burgers and fries.

  • Le Pigalle Hotel

    A reflection of the raucous neighborhood in which it sits, Le Pigalle Hotel is more than just a stack of cookie-cutter rooms. In fact, each of its six rooms is one-of-a-kind, filled with unique objects, furniture both old and new, books, music, artwork, and other trinkets. The place is proudly Parisian, with croissants from a nearby bakery, books from the local bookstore, and a basement jukebox with music chosen by a DJ who was born and raised in the neighborhood. Also on site is a café, bar, and restaurant, making this less of a hotel and more of a meeting place for the scamps that carouse the streets outside.

  • Modern British Columbia Cabin

    Surrounded by protected forest yet only a 20 minute drive from Golden, this Modern British Columbia Cabin is an ideal weekend getaway. Inside its sloped exterior are two bedrooms, a loft with two additional beds — great for larger groups and families — and two full bathrooms, as well as an upscale kitchen with bright orange cabinets. If the weather permits, there's a gas barbeque for outdoor cooking, a wood-burning fireplace when it doesn't, and large windows that provide 180 degree views of the surrounding woods, mountains, and river.
