Can You Stay At The Rayburn House From 'Bloodline'? The Real Hotel Is Just As Gorgeous As It Looks On Netflix
If these past two seasons of the Netflix thriller series Bloodline has taught us anything it's that being a member of the Rayburn family is no easy task. In fact, between covering up Danny's murder and keeping all the lies straight, the whole thing seems just downright stressful, which is ironic considering that the location of the Rayburn house is supposed to be a place of relaxation. I'm referring, of course, to the tropical, idyllic inn located in the Florida Keys that made the Rayburn name such a respected pillar in the community. And while the family itself may just be made up of fictional characters, the plantation itself is very real. So real, in fact, that you can stay at the Rayburn house from Bloodline in real life if you wanted to.
Located in Islamorada, Florida, this 18-acre property is actually called The Moorings Village & Spa, according to FoxNews.com, and offers the same breathtaking views and beachfront access that we see in almost every episode of Bloodline. As far as prices go, guests can stay in one of their many gorgeous one-bedroom cottages and villas, which ranges anywhere from $359-$1,249 per night. Or if you really want to experience life as a Rayburn, you could stay at the main two-story plantation itself where Robert and Sally Rayburn raised their kids. In reality, it's referred to as The Blue Charlotte House and is valued at $2,500 per night.
Aside from the sleeping accommodations and tropical atmosphere, this establishment also offers up a wide array of amenities to go with your stay. Though Sally mentioned in Season 2 that the inn doesn't come with any spa offerings, the real-life location has no such restrictions. From facials and massages to daily yoga classes, visitors have access to the ultimate pampering treatments that will drive all of your workday worries away. (Something that I think we can all agree the Rayburns are in desperate need of these days.)
And the fun doesn't stop there. Moorings also offers a heated pool, fitness center, paddle boarding, a tennis court, and a front row seat to the ocean. Basically, it's the type of paradise we all dream of retiring to. In fact, I have half a mind to pack up everything and move there right now. (Retiring at the age of 29 is totally a thing, right?) You don't even have to be a Bloodline fan to want to go visit this place. If anything, it'll just make you enjoy the place even more without all the lies, secrets, and memories of murder to weigh you down.
But even that can't take from how phenomenal this place is. I never thought I'd ever be jealous of the Rayburns, but after seeing these real-life images of this place, my green-eyed monster is kicking up a fuss. It may not have been the happiest place for them to grow up, but it certainly was the prettiest. Anyone else up for a road trip?
