Hot spots like Kingston, Woodstock, and Hudson all offer unique charms, so we rounded up a few of our favorite places to stay in the Hudson Valley and the the Catskills regions for summer and beyond. Read on for family friendly getaways, the best hotels for romantic retreats, and a few sprawling properties to spend time with friends in magical New York state surroundings.

Hudson Valley & Catskills Hotels

Eastwind Hotel and Bar, Windham

Eastwind Hotel and Bar

$400.00, Tablet Hotels

You’ll find plenty to do any season at the Eastwind Hotel and Bar. During the winter months, you can ski at nearby Windham and Hunter mountains, cook in front of a fire pit (with hotel-provided BBQ kits no less), or unwind in a Finnish style sauna. When weather allows, explore one of the many nearby hiking trails or partake in some outdoor yoga. The 1920s-era lodge, located in the so-called “gem of the Catskiils“ offers guests several experiences: Stay in a Lushna, one of the glamping cabins on the property, or book a more traditional guest room, decked out with high end linens and Scandinavian style vintage furniture.

Hutton Brickyards, Kingston

Hutton Brickyards

$370.00, Tablet Hotels

Less than two hours from NYC in the Hudson Valley, Kingston is full of industrial charm–and the Hutton Brickyards provides a healthy dose of it for those looking. Located on 73 acres of Hudson river-front landscape, a series of 31 cabins are a welcome change from average hotel rooms, with amenities like breakfast delivered to your door each morning. Spend your days at the spa, taking in a local nature walk, or dining at the on-site restaurant–all with prime views of the Hudson river.

INNESS, Accord


$755.00, INNESS

Opened last fall in the charming Ulster County town of Accord, INNESS is a similarly sprawling compound of cabins with a shop, restaurant, swimming pool, golf course, and a few tennis courts to keep you occupied—so much so that you might never have to leave the property. Just as impressive as the amenities are the design accolades–AD senior design editor Hannah Martin admired INNESS’s interiors on a trip during the hotel’s inaugural season last fall,” gnarled wood stools, Shaker-esque dining chairs, rustic ceramics—mix with new, clean-line designs, like a lighting collection made in partnership with Brooklyn-based Roll & Hill or seriously covetable kitchens by Plain English.”

Piaule, Catskill


$434.00, Piaule

Arguably one of the buzziest Catskills hotels opened in the last few years, celebs and design lovers flocked to Japandi influenced Piaule–with great reason–seemingly before the paint dried on the 50 acre property last summer. Enjoy the environs with slightly less hype this year, and be sure not to miss the breathtaking spa, where massages and healing sessions can be booked and visitors can submerge in the hot pool and mineral plunge while enjoying a panoramic view of the woods below.

Wylder Windham, Windham

Wylder Windham

$315.00, Wylder Windham

Another property situated near Windham Mountain, the very soon-to-be-reopened Wylder Windham will offer a distinct vibe for travelers looking to enjoy the area’s offerings starting July 13. A set of dwellings that includes a Victorian farmhouse, as well as several lodges cottages, and more traditional inn and motel structures, guests can fully choose their own adventure. Aside from the lodgings, pickleball courts, saunas, and river access can all be enjoyed in this picturesque setting, designed by the outdoor oriented Wylder Hotel group.

Mohonk Mountain House, New Paltz

Mohonk Mountain House

$932.00, Mohonk Mountain House

We’d be remiss not to feature the legendary Mohonk Mountain House resort, which has been welcoming guests to its mountaintop perch since the 1870s. The historic landmark is comprised of 259 guest rooms in a chalet style structure, situated alongside Lake Mohonk, where guests can enjoy kayaking or fly fishing.

The Maker, Hudson

The Maker

$475.00, The Maker

Former Clever editor Nora Taylor described Hudson’s The Maker hotel as ”the perfect escape for design lovers” and delighted in the property’s collection of over 1,000 lights and lamps. Most of the furniture in the revamped historical structures–there are three total–is reclaimed or restored vintage but without the kitsch factor and stocked with luxe accoutrements, including a high end gym and juice bar. When you venture out, you’re in the heart of all that downtown Hudson has to offer, including great food and antique shops.

Private Homes & Cabins

Floating Farmhouse, Narrowsburg

Floating Farmhouse

$1716.00, Vrbo

What’s the point of staying in the forest if you can’t see it? No worries on that front when it comes to this modernized farmhouse. Floor to ceiling windows, lounge chairs on the deck that overlook a private creek, and a charming gazebo and screened in barn space will give you plenty of vantage points to enjoy the scenery.

Chic Cabin on Callicoon Creek, Hortonville

Callicoon, New York

$229.00, Airbnb

Everything about this 1800s cabin, tastefully decorated in cozy Scandi style, is picture perfect, but the cedar barrel hot tub might just be the star of the show.

Modern Upstate Bliss, Cairo

Modern Upstate Bliss

$712.00, Vrbo

Warm wood, stone, and ample natural light will make this modern three bedroom your home away from home. The well maintained, six acre landscape features a gorgeous river for strolling along or swimming in and the seating options in the yard were designed for soaking in the night‘s sky. With a double height kitchen, an outdoor gas firepit and eight burner BBQ grill, as well as a comfortable office space with wifi, you might be tempted to move in.

The Lodge at June Farms, West Sandlake

The Lodge at June Farms

$318.00, Airbnb

Animal lovers, don’t miss your chance to stay at this heritage breed farm–without any of the hard work required. The open floor plan cabin overlooks the horse pasture at June Farms, which is also home to the Pony Barn, a popular restaurant that serves wood fired pizza and often hosts events during the summer season.
