Whenever you find yourself trotting in a stress arena, you stay in the race by telling yourself to hay in there until you can Escape. Get back in the saddle of the simple life and gallop out of the gates to Folkston, Georgia, for a two-night stay at the Newell Lodge.

The horse lover's haven in the midst of 60 acres features cozy cottages shaded under sprawling oak trees and Spanish moss—the ideal place for you and a plus one ($339) or three friends or family members ($523) to rein in relaxation.

Tie your four-wheel stallion up in front of your cottage, hop on your rented golf cart, and drop by the lodge's general store to pick up supplies with your ten-percent discount.

In the morning, let your nose lead the way to an included breakfast before making your way to the barn, where you'll be matched up with one of 26 horses for a one-hour ride on the property's trails.

The next day, brush your mane out of your face and hop aboard the complimentary transportation service to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge for a 90- to 120-minute tour—a must for any wildlife enthusiast. If you want to explore further on your own, rent a canoe or kayak from the lodge—the swamp is an angler's paradise (boasting 39 species of fish).

Later that night, stirr-up a feast in the kitchen and serve your catch of the day—with a side of carrots—for dinner. When it comes to crisp air, calm surroundings, and carefree fun, this Escape is a treasure trough.

  • "In addition to horseback riding, you can also hunt on the property and fish nearby. Total peace and quiet. At night it becomes magical when about 40 of the oaks on the property are lighted with tiny lights. This place is a gem."
