Hasbrouck House

Dubbed “The Americas’ Most Romantic Retreat” by World Boutique Hotel Awards, this luxurious respite is steeped in history with all the modern trimmings making it the perfect spot for a weekend away. Accessible in less than two hours by car, the hotel offers luxury suites, an in-house farm-to-table restaurant, a wellness program including yoga and in-room massage, even a Tesla car charger. Enjoy the wood-burning fireplace during the cooler months.

The Arnold House

Just two hours north of New York City, you’ll find The Arnold House located on Shandalee Mountain near Livingston Manor. Escape to this expansive retreat on 7-acres of lush forest complete with hiking trails, a barn and greenhouse. Roam the grounds or spend some time in the tavern or at the spa. Whatever type of escape you need, The Arnold House is sure to cover it. 

839 Shandelee Rd, Livingston Manor, NY; T. (845) 439-5070

Deer Mountain Inn

Perched in the hills above Tannersville, you’ll find Deer Mountain Inn overlooking the Catskill Mountains. Surrounded by forest and an abundance of hiking trails, Deer Mountain Inn is a refuge from urban living. The feeling of urban escape is only reinforced by the classic and cozy log cabin aesthetic. Setting this inn apart from the others is its restaurant; with Michelin-starred chef Ryan Tate running the show, you may want to visit DMI just for its dinner. 

790 County Route 25, Tannersville, NY; T. (518) 589-6268; Restaurant open Thursday-Sunday

Scribner’s

Modern in influence, Scribner’s mountain lodge aims to serve as a basecamp for city dwellers looking to explore the Catskills region in comfort and style. Its location in Hunter, NY, puts you in close proximity to some of the best skiing areas, waterfalls and hiking areas in the Catskills. And if you prefer to stay put, you can always roam the 20-acre property for a good dose of nature, and visit the on-site restaurant, Prospect, for some Alpine-inspired cuisine. 

13 Scribner Hollow Rd, Hunter, NY; (518) 628-5130

Rivertown Lodge

Located on the main street of Hudson, close to the action but far enough away to maintain that relaxed holiday glow, Rivertown Lodge is an independently owned 27-room boutique hotel housed in a former 1920s movie theatre. The interior style is refined retro meets cozy American living with oak floors, utilitarian fixtures, and custom-made furniture. The in-house Tavern, open Friday through Tuesday from 5pm, offers a seasonal menu inspired by the flavors of North Africa and Morocco. 

731 Warren Street, Hudson, NY 12534; T. (518) 512-0954

Troutbeck Inn

This 250-acre estate hotel and one-time homestead in the 1700s is all rustic charm, river views and fresh air. It has long been a gathering place for the romantics and the thinkers with notables guests including the likes of Ernest Hemingway and Ralph Waldo Emerson, among others. Recent renovations promise luxury amenities, and features like the wood-burning fireplace and cozy aesthetic make it a haven for those looking for a weekend getaway during winter. The restaurant led by Michelin-starred Chef Gabe McMackin serves contemporary American fare with locally sourced produce from local farms and purveyors. A two-hour drive or train ride from Grand Central will get you there.

515 Leedsville Rd, Amenia, NY 12501: T. (845) 789-1555
