You Can Live Out Your 'Game of Thrones' Fantasy at This Themed Cottage

You can visit Winterfell, just three hours from New York City.

Live out your Game of Thrones fantasies — or create new ones — with a stay at The Roxbury at Stratton Falls in New York's Catskill Mountains. Elaborately themed cottages include the "Crown of the Pendragon" with an 85-gallon circular bathtub set amid stone walls under a 20-foot, three-tiered chandelier.

Are you more of the vampire, Gothic-horror type? Stay in next-door "Dracula's Fangs," darkly decorated with plenty of blood-red touches, lush velvet, and a winding staircase leading to a vampire throne chamber.

Then there's "Galileo's Gate," which combines Renaissance-style decor on the first floor with an "alien galaxy" on a second level as well as an octagonal glass observation deck, complete with a telescope for evening stargazing. Beware the glow-in-the-dark alien in the walk-in shower.

Or perhaps something bright and whimsical is more your style, like "Cinderella's Gown," which features an 18-foot ball gown bed canopy and huge pumpkin-shaped bathroom.

Or rest your head in "The Lost Horizon," which is all about old Hollywood glitz and glamor — and plenty of shiny art deco accents.

The themed Tower Cottages became part of The Roxbury at Stratton Falls in 2014, adding to the original Roxbury Motel down the road. The entire "Roxbury Experience" also includes the Mansion with seven themed guest rooms, each with ensuite bathroom and mountain views. A spa, pool, hot tub, recreation room, and gaming area are among the amenities.

Outside your fantasy cottage, you'll find plenty to do. Don't miss the short trek to Stratton Falls, a pretty 50-foot cascade on the property that's only accessible to resort guests. There's also a network of hiking trails to explore. Otherwise, more hiking trails, mountain biking, fishing, and golf are nearby. Area Catskill towns offer plenty of restaurants, cafes, and brewpubs, plus museums, antique shops, and the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
