Folly Beach, SC
Regatta is nothing if not laidback, offering the kind of "kick your shoes off at the door and grab a drink" welcome that may make you feel like showing up to breakfast in your bathrobe. Each guest room opens onto an expansive porch with chaise longues or Adirondack chairs—perfect for relaxing and watching the sunset or the dolphins nosing around the marsh.
