Casual Inn Trips

If luxury isn’t your priority, the carefully chosen lodgings on our Casual Inn Trips are ideal places to relax and enjoy warm hospitality after a day of active exploring. From an Alaskan lodge with glacier views to a restored 16th-century villa in Tuscany, each property is in tune with the surrounding region and a perfect venue for visiting spectacular natural sights or immersing yourself in the local culture. While our Casual Inns are by definition comfortably informal, they meet a rigorous checklist of criteria from the set by the very demanding Backroads team.

While our Casual Inns are comfortably informal, they meet a rigorous checklist of criteria from the Backroads team, including authenticity, scenic settings, proximity to where we pursue our activities, and amenities such as swimming pools.
