The House Method team cast their votes on the best winter getaways in the US. Our list includes destinations for the outdoorsman, beach lover, and tourist alike.

For some, winter means embracing the cold, strapping on some skis and donning a hat. Others look for relief from the low temperatures in the form of beaches or small southern hideaways. We at House Method believe that wherever you go, a beautiful and unique environment is key to the experience. This list of winter vacation spots is jam packed with beautiful villages, stylish hotels, and stunning landscapes.

Bay Saint Louis is part of a chain of charming little coastal communities, which includes Gulfport and Biloxi, so there an endless number of day trips to be had from this lovely hideaway.
