There’s no need to fly off to a super-remote locale or to camp out in the wilderness in order to enjoy a little relaxing birdsong. These resorts feature plenty of nature alongside their luxury amenities, so you can enjoy the best of both birding and a high-end hotel stay. Plus, the kids are welcome at all of the below, so you can make it a family experience.


Hawks Cay Resort

On Duck Key in the Florida Keys, Hawks Cay Resort is home to your typical beachside seagulls, but also herons and pelicans. Named a top family resort in the Florida Keys, the resort offers plenty of ways for your family to play, including snorkeling and deep-sea fishing. There’s also an on-site kids club.


Sanderling Resort

In the Outer Banks, Sanderling Resort is situated in one of the East Coast’s best birding destinations. When you’re not keeping your eyes peeled for your feathered friends, you and the family will enjoy the multiple pools, beach, water sports rentals and more.


Spruce Point Inn

Farther north, in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, Spruce Point Inn sits on 55 acres where you can spot Atlantic puffins, black guillemots and common eiders. Children love hiking the property’s accessible trails; making s’mores over a campfire after dinner; and splashing in the heated, forest-side pool.
