In the Catskills Mountains of New York just about two hours from the city comes a new boutique hotel that’s perfect for outdoorsy travelers. Called the Eastwind Hotel and Bar, this former 1920s bunk house draws on the property’s rich history and fuses it with Scandinavian inspiration.
Guests can choose to reside in King, Queen, or Writer’s Studio suites with Frette linens, Maysaya & Co. furniture, wool blankets, hand-woven Turkish rugs, wireless speakers, bath products, and custom-designed bed frames. For those interested in an upscale “glamping” experience though, guests can opt into one of three “Lushna Cabins”. These cabins are minimalist A-frame huts that don’t sacrifice comforts, and are fully insulated to weather all four seasons in New York.
At Eastwind, guests can enjoy activities like guided foraging walks, nearby hiking trails, historical walking tours, biking paths, and fantastic nearby restaurants, including The Windham Local and Phoenicia Diner. There are plenty of seasonal events at Eastwind too; this fall, guests can also go to different food and wind festivals, farms, corn mazes, and more. In the winter, of course, guests are able to partake in world-class skiing opportunities and views.
Eastwind also emphasizes community and communal spaces with fire pits for s’mores, books and games on property, and mingling opportunities at the cocktail and wine bar.
With rates starting at $159/night, the Eastwind Hotel & Bar is the perfect New York fall getaway. For more information, call them at (518) 734-0553 or visit the website at www.eastwindny.com. To make a reservation or compare rooms and rates, click here.
