The supremely waspy Gasparilla Inn & Club on Gasparilla Island in Boca Grande, Florida, has had a dress code since its inception in 1913, is owned by the William S. Farish Jr. family, has pink-and-green guest rooms and cottages, and is closed each year from July 8 through October 12. What’s not to love? 877.403.0599; the-gasparilla-inn.com.

The Dorothy Draper School of Decorating with designer Carleton Varney, at the venerable Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia (established 1778). Varney is the president of Dorothy Draper — the firm that designed the baroque interiors of The Greenbrier in 1946. Week-long decorating packages start April 29 and June 10. And the Greenbrier has a Cold War–era bunker carved in the side of a mountain. No spies can get in here to learn your decorating secrets. 855.453.4858; greenbrier.com.

Pink Sands Resort on Harbour Island, Bahamas. Mick and Jerry used to stay here, and the interiors were designed by the owner of London’s swinging shop Biba. Enough for us. 800.407.4776; pinksandsresort.com.
