Catskills + Hudson Valley

Hotels in Catskills + Hudson Valley

The three-bedroom guesthouse at Apple Pond Farm comes with a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of toys that will delight the kids. Rooms from $420 (five people, two nights).

The property was built in 1883 and underwent a restoration in 2010. The inn’s bar and restaurant feel almost Southern, like something out of a Mark Twain Mississippi tale. Only the sumptuous murals of nearby inlets done in the lush and romantic Hudson River School style remind you where you are.

The stone-and-timber modernized hunting lodge was built in the ‘60s. Ask for a room in the Stone Lodges with views of Hessian Lake.

Cross the Hudson on the nearby Beacon Bridge and dine 100 feet from the water at this Cold Spring property, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a hotel since 1832. The restaurant specializes in dry-aged prime beef.

Family-owned and operated since 1869, the 251-room Mohonk Mountain House resembles a Victorian castle—albeit one known for its daily outdoor activities.

At Kate’s Lazy Meadow Motel, the quirky personality of Kate Pierson, one of the lead singers for the B-52’s, shines through in every detail.

An updated homestead from the 17th century set on 70 lush green acres along the banks of the Hudson River, Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa has 18 individualized guest rooms and suites, all with fireplaces and most with whirlpool baths and views of the Hudson Valley.

The highlight of this animal farm is Apple, the potbellied pig whose bristly coat is an almost meditative pleasure to pet and who may very well try to eat you (in a good-natured piggy way). Human accommodations are entirely unpretentious, with rooms facing out to the distant peaks.

Built and designed by its owners, the bed and breakfast has an eccentric Victorian vibe with rooms full of antiques.
