Why not take a spontaneous trip this weekend, to get away, turn off your phones and just enjoy being in the moment. Here are some fun getaway ideas.
DeBruce Inn, Livingston Manor NY
This 14-room inn offers old school vibes with plaid wallpaper, leather chairs and the odd piece of taxidermy here and there. For fun activities, try fly-fishing in the famous trout-filled waters of Willowemoc Creek or go on a nature walk. The restaurant’s Saturday night nine-course tasting dinner, will certainly impress, using only freshly caught ingredients from the surrounding areas. After? It’s whiskey around the bonfire.
Milk Barn Hankins, NY
Located in the Delaware River Valley, this converted 1880’s dairy barn features a main house and two guesthouses, decorated in a homely rustic way: soft luxurious beds with amazing blankets, greet each guest in their room. The open chef’s kitchen is ideal for long lingering DIY meals while the living room’s massive stone fireplace and vintage stereo will keep the party going late night.
Mystic Lodge, Bovina Center, NY
Set on five acres of beautiful rolling hills, these two kitted-out teepees feature wood-burning stoves, antique chests, queen sized-beds as well as the usual backyard suspects: axe, hatchet, bison skulls, tea light candles, sage, palo santo and dreamcatchers. Have a hot cocoa around the fire pit or take a plunge in the redwood-fired hot tub. Both spots are ideal for stargazing.
