Where to Stay for Presidents Day Weekend 2017

By Chloe Stein

It's 2017, and President's Day is just around the bend! You know, that Monday in February when you have off and the weekend instantly becomes twice as nice? Oh yes, that one.

But before you start planning your Sunday night shenanigans, be sure to check out these properties. Because what better way to spend your three-day weekend than at an all-American cabin or an undeniably bold dome in Idywilld, California?

Check out these top five glamping sites, inspired by our first five executive powerhouses, the charm of their puffy wigs, and even one highlighting a quite prominent First Lady.

1. George Washington - Virginia

This cabin has two things in common with our beloved founding father: it is located in the first President's home state, and it's ivory white exterior gleams just like Washington's infamous (not-actually-made-of-wood) dentures.

2. John Adams - New England

As the first president to officially live in the White House, we're pairing up John Adams with this villa in Vermont. Set in the endearing New England region, it overlooks the Green Mountains and boasts a regal presence that just screams executive glamping.

3. Thomas Jefferson - Virginia

As a lover of both innovation and technology—of his time—we believe that this alternative, two-story tree house is the perfect Jefferson pick. Additionally, it comes certifiably tech-approved with a 40-inch LED HD television, a Blu-ray player, and even Netflix. House of Cards and chill, anyone?

4. James Madison - California

Fourth on our list goes out to James Madison's main squeeze, Dolley Madison. Popularly known as Washington D.C.'s most killer hostess, we're dedicating this California dome to her. Why's that? Well, she singlehandedly saved some of Washington's most coveted documents, during the British invasion of 1814. Her brave actions can only be expressed by the boldest of glamping sites—this dome in Idyllwild.

5. James Monroe - Louisiana

For our fifth and final pick, we're venturing down South. As the head negotiator for the Louisiana Purchase, this glamping site embodies James Monroe's Lousiana triumph and is located on a historic bayou near the oh so charming French-influenced New Orleans. Fit for a President, it is chic, spacious and, dare we say, très beau.
