You can get off the beaten path without roughing it—simply consider one of these secluded escapes with first-rate amenities. Each one offers everything you need for a world-class stay, including inspiring vistas, cozy accommodations, and speedy and secure Wi-Fi—so you can connect with friends and family, stream your favorite shows, and even catch up on email and download or upload large files (if you’re switching up your work-from-home routine).

​​​​​​​Read on for a few of our favorite remote vacation rentals—and if you’re a host, consider Netgear’s Orbi Wi-Fi 6E Mesh System, which provides ultra-fast internet speeds with up to 9,000 square feet of coverage, to ensure your guests have the best Wi-Fi during their stay. As an added bonus, Netgear’s Nighthawk M5 Mobile Router can provide guests with powerful Wi-Fi on the go.
