The kitchen is the heart of any home. Even on vacation, it’s where we tend to gather and connect. Whether you’re cooking up a big breakfast to share before a day of adventures or grabbing a late-night snack, having a beautiful kitchen adds a special something to any vacation home.
With a portfolio of nearly 500 stunning Inspirato homes around the world, it can be hard to choose favorites. But when it comes to kitchens, these would inspire even the most reluctant home chefs to break out their aprons. (P.S. If cooking isn’t something you’re interested in on vacation, ask your Destination Concierge to arrange a private chef so you can still enjoy the beauty of these kitchens without any of the effort.)
Lusso Moderno — Florence, Italy
Featured in Architectural Digest and the design edition of Vanity Fair, every detail of this home is artfully crafted—the full chef-grade kitchen being no exception. This stainless-steel masterpiece has a 12-burner range, two ovens, a commercial-grade hood, and a wall of windows that looks out to a serene outdoor courtyard.
Davenport — Savannah, Georgia
This charming home located in Savannah’s Historic Landmark District features ornate and original details throughout. Though the kitchen is freshly updated, sporting navy blue hues, it still hints at its historic roots with exposed brick serving as the backdrop.
Marmot Ridge — Telluride, Colorado
It’s easy to picture your whole family hanging out in this striking open-concept kitchen/dining/living space of this home. The crisp and modern kitchen looks out to the coziest living area with fireplace, and dining area with a live-edge table that seats eight. The entire space is enveloped in mature Aspen trees with views of Telluride’s incredible mountains peeking through.
Casa Tropical — Tulum, Mexico
One of our newest homes in Mexico, Casa Tropical has a warm and calming minimalist vibe. Featuring high ceilings, mid-mod wood paneling, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open the tropical outdoors—this light-filled kitchen is the perfect place to whip up a pitcher of margaritas before heading to the property’s meditation tree house.
Scarlet Sage — Rosemary Beach, Florida
This home is not your typical Rosemary Beach residence. Though exquisitely decorated in modern design throughout, the kitchen might be our favorite part. Featuring a large marble island that can seat five, the open-concept kitchen has a unique cooking range, and two stunning chandeliers.
Podere Panico — Tuscany, Italy
The kitchen in this restored 400-year-old Tuscan farmhouse sparks the most romantic Old-World notions. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped back into simpler times while you sip wine and cook pizza in the wood-fired oven, with the stone fireplace roaring nearby, and views of the rolling Tuscan hillside just outside of your arched window frame.
Jessamine — Kiawah Island, South Carolina
The bright and airy gourmet kitchen in this Kiawah Island home is what Lowcountry dreams are made of. Its beautifully classic design features a Wolf cooking range, wine fridge, and an island that seats four.
Mulberry — St. Michaels, Maryland
A perfect gathering space for your crew, this home’s spacious gourmet kitchen has a dining table big enough for 12 of your favorite people. The exposed wooden ceiling beams juxtaposed with the dark kitchen cabinets and white subway tile on the walls deserve a chef’s kiss!
Casa Fuentes — San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
Casa Fuentes is an artistic, moody, and mysterious home in the center of San Miguel. We love the kitchen for its striking countertops, hammered metal ceiling, and unique floor tiles. Not to mention the French kitchen doors that open to a wonderfully dramatic dining room.
Obsidian — Big Sky, Montana
A modern mountain dream, Obsidian’s kitchen is an ideal space to unwind and enjoy some après-ski apps and drinks. It’s sleek and sophisticated design is complemented by a glass-enclosed wine room, chic dining and living area with floor-to-ceiling windows, and a cozy fireplace that all work together to envelop the space.
