Sometimes you just need to call it quits on a Thursday and get out of town. So we’ve found your next weekend getaway: A bucolic weekend in the Catskills at the Foxfire Mountain House. While a search for “Catskills inns” won’t have you lacking in results, the romantically rustic charms of this boutique stay sets it apart from your traditional East Coast bed and breakfast.
Located about a two-hour drive from New York City, you’ll arrive to find a large main house with a bar and restaurant, plus a three-bedroom cottage for those who prefer a more exclusive stay. The guest rooms feature cozy, reclaimed wood pieces and vintage finds, while public spaces enjoy an eclectic mix of styles from mid-century to Victorian. On the grounds, find analog-era amusements like bocce, horseshoe and hammocks, socialize with other guests in the former pool house-turned-gazebo, or roast a marshmallow in the bonfire pit.
While the area is known for endless trails of hiking, old-school diners, indie boutiques and galleries, you don’t have to go far for a great meal or craft brew -0 this Catskills inn has a restaurant and bar on site. The hotel’s owner, a former chef, serves up relaxed but inspired dishes like smoked-trout fritters, lamb kofta in sumac broth and chili-lime roasted acorn squash, just to name a few. Book now and enjoy a complimentary buffet breakfast, plus happy-hour wine, cheese and lemonade on Saturdays.
Whether your upstate getaway is a solo jaunt or a 72-hour date night with your partner, you’ll find a serene and romantic retreat worth shouting from the (Catskills) mountain tops.
