There is a cure for summertime blues in the digital age: Find yourself a beautiful country inn, cabin or retreat far in spirit from the maddening crowds and distractions of daily life. Next, unplug, relax and don’t look back.

Two escapes a short drive from some of the country’s largest, busiest cities show travelers how it’s done. In Catskills, New York, 2.5 hours outside New York City, Urban Cowboy Lodge offers itself up as a mountain retreat where no cell service serves as one of its most alluring features. The boutique hotel is designed as a quiet rebellion to the rising influence of AI in travel, doubling down on its commitment to disconnect with an innovative, tech-less environment.

Upon receiving your reservation email (or upon check-in), you can opt into the digital detox and embrace the property’s technology-free side. You will trade your smartphones for a Polaroid camera, ensuring a true disconnection from the digital world. Once phones are securely locked away in a lock box, you receive a Digital Detox Kit, including a comprehensive printed guide with an exclusive checklist of activities to enjoy on the property, such as axe throwing, fly fishing, yoga, tarot reading and more, as well as a list of nearby hiking trails. Anybody who completes the digital detox will be rewarded with a 15 percent discount on a future stay and Urban Cowboy merchandise.

A couple of hours north of Chicago and tucked between Milwaukee and Green Bay, Tomczyk Cabin (the newest lodging in Destination Kohler’s cabin collection) provides weary travelers serenity, solitude and a few other excuses to get back to nature, disconnect from the world, and reconnect with simplicity and quiet. The lodging, built more than100 years ago in the Wisconsin wilderness, has been reborn as a private rustic retreat that captures and preserves a way of life that existed when its original owners moved in.

When staying at Tomczyk Cabin, disconnect from the world and modern amenities like electricity and running water in order to truly unplug and recharge. The cabin includes an outdoor pump for water, an outhouse, two queen beds, a sauna, lanterns, firewood, charcoal grill and more. Additionally, the cabin has unrivaled access to nature with access to Kohler’s River Wildlife Club, a naturally secluded sanctuary encompassing more than 500 acres of Wisconsin wilderness, 5 miles of the Sheboygan River and more than 18 miles of scenic woodland trails. In addition to self-guided hiking, activities here include canoeing, kayaking and cross-country skiing.
