Southern Vacations

It's the little things that make all the difference

From picnics on the beach, fly-fishing on the Jackson River to sunset cruises on Lake Toxaway, we do it all with unmatched attention to detail and true Southern hospitality. We're constantly adding homes to our Handpicked collection, so make sure to check back each month for the latest and greatest vacation rentals in the South.

Handpicked Homes

We don't just hand out the distinction of “Handpicked Home” to any property. It takes the right combination of natural beauty, world-class amenities and Southern charm to even be considered. The goal is to make sure every one of our rental homes is as perfect as the one you left.

Handpicked Hotels

Perfectly appointed rooms? Check. Top-notch restaurants? Yup. Breathtaking views? You bet. The Southern Living Hotel Collection features the best accommodations across the South—all rigorously vetted by some of the most discerning eyes in the business.
