Leave the city behind. Let's go travel!

Hi, I’m Misha Gillingham.

This blog is a combination of passions: luxury hospitality and exploration of the great outdoors. I’m someone who has always been fascinated by what goes into creating that flawless guest experience. For the past 8 years, I’ve been paying close attention to these details and sharing them with you here.  They are what make up the difference between a stress free, extraordinary adventure and just another average vacation.

I don’t know about you, but traveling to the same big cities, seeing overrun tourist destinations, and waiting in long crowded lines just doesn’t do it for me anymore. I seek out the unique, less traveled, more intimate places around the globe. All of the properties I choose to feature are hand-selected because they are surrounded by exquisite natural landscapes and offer guests a once-in-a-lifetime, truly memorable experience where they can get back to nature.

Dream Farm Luxe

If it isn’t already obvious, I firmly believe that getting outdoors is a key component in living a happy and healthy lifestyle. For this reason, on a small island in the Pacific Northwest, my husband, two daughters, and I are busy creating the farm of our dreams.

What’s more exciting, is that after all this time spent traveling the world and collecting data on how to create the perfect guest experience, I am finally able to put this knowledge to work, offering guests a luxury farm stay experience right from my own 10 acre property. We grow our own food, we have 22 animals who are all pets (I’m an avid animal and wildlife lover), and we are immersed in nature every day. You can learn more about this here.
