Happy Earth Day 2022

Think back to when you were a child, how did you celebrate Earth Day? If you’re like me, you likely did an Earth-themed craft in elementary school or clean-up trash with your classmates. Perhaps you even learned the importance of Mother Earth and all she does for us like providing resources or how to sustainably use those resources. These are all wonderful learning opportunities, but as an adult, have you ever paused to reflect how much our planet has played an integral role in some of your fondest memories? Moments with our loved ones are certainly special, but the scenery often has the ability to elevate those moments and make them truly unforgettable.

New Hampshire has attracted families to its postcard-worthy shores for centuries.

Nestled on the largest freshwater lake in Sierra Nevada, Lake Tahoe promises year-round fun.

At Natural Retreats, we understand the importance of experiencing the beauty of our planet, which is why we place an emphasis on the location of our destinations. Each hand-picked property is set within close proximity to some of America’s most stunning natural works of art; from the Sierra Mountains in Lake Tahoe and shores of Tybee Island to the Lakes Region of New Hampshire and everywhere in between.

Volunteer to clean up the lakes, rivers, and oceans on Earth Day 2022!

Plant a tree for Earth Day and your children will feel the rewards for years to come.
