Treat yourself to some luxury lodging
Whether you’re looking to plan a multi-day vacation to the Hudson Valley or simply want to escape for a quick weekend getaway to the region, lodging options are copious. For a castle-like luxury resort experience, opt for the famous Mohonk Mountain House located in New Paltz in Ulster County. Perched upon the edge of the Shawangunk Ridge, the resort offers a day spa, a golf course, a farm-to-table restaurant, and 40,000 acres of forest for hiking and other outdoor activities.
If you’re looking for something a little quainter, check out the Blue Barn Bed and Breakfast located in Ulster County. This rustic 1830s cottage has four rooms, a library, and a lounge with a fireplace, games, and books. A full breakfast made with seasonal, local ingredients is served every morning, and a sampling of local bourbons, teas, and coffee is available for the after dinner crowd.
For a more modern boutique option, stay at Wm Farmer & Sons, which houses 13 rooms and suites in Columbia County. Guests can enjoy a common room that includes a backyard patio, couches, TV, and dining areas. In addition to the hotel, there’s also an onsite barroom and restaurant, which serves up raw oysters, grilled quail, spiced lamb, and specialty cocktails.
