Toasty fireplaces. S'Mores. Scenic Views. Hot Tubs. If any of these sound good to you, check out these NYC weekend escapes.

01

Winvian Farm

155 Alain White Rd, Morris, CT 06763

01

Set on 113 acres and bordering extensive woods and lakes, Winvian Farm in the Litchfield Hills was created to recharge and indulge. Eighteen unique resort cottages and the Hadley Suite were designed by 15 different architects, each offering the unexpected—a night in a treehouse, a greenhouse, a musical conservatory, and other unique options. Bikes wait by every cottage door for exploring the grounds, or walk the winding paths and awaken the senses in the glorious organic gardens. The 5-star cuisine, wines, spa, and service are also just as pleasant as the experiences that you enjoy.

02

Scribner's Catskill Lodge

13 Scribner Hollow Rd, Hunter, NY 12442

Scribner's Catskill Lodge

The Catskills are going through a revival and Scribner's is the perfect case study. The vibe of the guests here feels akin to that of the Bedford L stop, and it's intentional. Scribner's was founded specifically to excite urbanites about the lush escape that heading 'upstate' provides. With thoughtful design, friendly service, and great food and drinks, it's easy to understand why. In addition to their 38 guest rooms and suites, they offer a locally-inspired restaurant and over 20 acres of mountainside to explore, including skiing and skating in the winter.

03

Urban Cowboy Lodge

37 Alpine Rd, Big Indian, NY 12410

Urban Cowboy Lodge

37 Alpine Rd, Big Indian, NY 12410

Set on 68 sprawling acres in the Catskills, The Urban Cowboy Lodge is actually five stylish stand-alone buildings where you can immerse yourself in Lyon Porter’s signature design of bold patterns and hand-picked Americana antiques. Many of the suites feature clawfoot bathtubs for two and pot belly stoves, while a select few include outdoor cedar soaking tubs on their private decks. Spend the day hiking the trails, swimming in streams, or working remotely with strong WiFi and flexible workspaces. This is the perfect getaway, especially if you can stay longer than a weekend.

04

The DeBruce

982 Debruce Rd, Livingston Manor, NY 12758

04

Nestled in one of the great sleepy river valleys in the United States, The DeBruce sits on a ledge that overlooks both the Willowemoc Valley as well as its namesake river in upstate New York's Catskill Park. As a guest, enjoy hiking, birding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing-- whatever outdoor trek your heart desires, as you have access to 600 acres of nature, across two mountains. This hotel has 14 guest rooms (all of which are charming; think clawfoot tubs), an award-winning restaurant (deemed one of the best in America by Esquire), and a private pool. Don't just take our word for it; Conde Nast Traveler calls it one of the 'Best New Hotels in the World.'

05

Miraval Berkshires

55 Lee Rd, Lenox, MA 01240

Miraval Berkshires

If the idea of a device-free resort scares you, rest assured, The Miraval Berkshires is the place to do it. This luxury resort is known for its nature, spa treatments, and dining. Start your morning with a crisp hike, then perhaps a stretch class to release the tension, and of course, top it all of with one of their many spa offerings. When you find your fingers scrolling on your phantom phone, opt for one of their complimentary meditation sessions instead, take up cooking lessons in a culinary workshop, or even just grab a healthy, farm-to-table meal at the restaurant.

06

Getaway

Catskill, NY 12414

Getaway

Catskill, NY 12414

You know those cozy, picturesque cabins you keep seeing on Instagram? These are them. Grab your S.O., and escape the city in a Getaway House— a custom one-room cabin that includes a fire pit, outdoor dining space, a kitchenette, bathroom, and comfy beds. Turn off your phone, silence your mind, and just be.

07

Whiteface Lodge

7 Whiteface Inn Ln, Lake Placid, NY 12946

07

With rustic timber walls and ceilings, and chandeliers made of antlers, Whiteface Lodge feels like you stepped into a log cabin from the Gilded Age. Its perfect blend of opulence and coziness all lends to its charm. On site, enjoy amenities like the spa and game room. Offsite, partake in everything from skiing, to scenic gondola rides, to bobsledding.

08

Buttermilk Falls Inn

220 N Rd, Milton, NY 12547

Buttermilk Falls Inn

Picturesque Buttermilk Falls feels like something straight out of a postcard. While you can opt to ski at nearby mountains, if you crave a winter escape that's a little less active and a little more relaxing, this is the spot to do it. In the colder months, explore the 75-acre property via rentable snowshoes. Indoors, enjoy a world-class spa, a farm-to-table restaurant, and a cozy fireplace. If you miss your fur babies at home--there's even an animal rescue sanctuary. Stay in one of the 10 beautiful guest rooms or opt for a luxurious cottage for some extra space and added privacy. Explore the shops in the quaint town of Milton, which is just minutes away. Best of all? You can get here easily via MetroNorth.

09

Hutton Brickyards

200 North St, Kingston, NY 12401

Hutton Brickyards

200 North St, Kingston, NY 12401

Though known for its picturesque location and unobstructed views of the Hudson River, in the colder months, Huxton Brickyards transforms in an indoor, cozy oasis. Spend your time here relaxing in the The Winter Pavillion -- a dining space with living music and entertainment, and world-class fare created by Chef Dan Silverman. With elevated cuisine, spa treatments, and beautiful waterfront views which you can enjoy from the warmth of your own private luxury cabin, we have full confidence you'll find your zen.

10

Mohonk Mountain House

1000 Mountain Rest Rd, New Paltz, NY 12561

10

As fun as it to pretend our NYC abodes are actually castles, the only thing they typically share in common is the plumbing and sense of Stockholm Syndrome. Behold: a real castle. Founded by the Smiley Family in 1869, Mohonk Mountain House is a Victorian resort nestled in the Hudson Valley. Surrounded by 40,000 acres of pristine forest, this National Historic Landmark offers farm-to-table cuisine, a heated indoor pool, and an award-winning spa. And if your royalty who needs no saving, try their more adventurous onsite activities like cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, winter hiking, or ice skating.
