What better way to spend winter than by cozying up under the fireplace, soaking in the bathtub, and enjoying breakfast in (an ultra-comfy) bed? These three idyllic hotels — all in the northeast U.S. — set the scene for a cozy getaway.
Idyllic Hotel #1: Cedar Lakes Estate (@thesistersofcedarlakes)
The expansive Hudson Valley property — a former summer camp — has completely transformed into a chic retreat. Guests can easily enhance their stay with private dinners, sunset viewings, mixology courses, and more. Accommodations here range from rustic-chic cottages, luxe poolside cabanas with all-wood interiors, retro-inspired, dark-red-painted bunkhouses, sleek modern suites, and more. While it’s tempting to stay in bed all day, the property chock-full of winter-esque activities like sledding, snowshoeing, and ice skating, to name a few. Visit the property’s Treehouse Lounge — outfitted with a fireplace, spacious outdoor deck, black-and-white wood flooring, and oversized sofas you’ll want to sink into — for wintery cocktails and trivia.
Idyllic Hotel #2: Scribner’s Catskill Lodge (@scribnerslodge)
This Catskills hideaway, which spans 23 scenic acres, is among the most design-forward properties on the list. Despite the retro-inspired furnishings and chic touches, the 38-room boutique hotel is anything but stuffy or intimidating. From the exciting drinking and dining options to the on-site ice skating rink (seasonal), the property oozes style and fun at the same time. Expect mountain views, dark maple flooring, vintage rugs, and warm fireplaces. Check out the Library Lounge, which boasts hundreds of carefully curated books, and Whiskey Lounge.
Idyllic Hotel #3: Weekapaug Inn (@weekapauginn)
From a friendly game of shuffleboard to nightly s’mores by the firepit, Rhode Island’s Weekapaug Inn is ideal for travelers of all ages. The laid-back vibe is apparent throughout the coastal property, which boasts 31 elegantly appointed, coastal-inspired rooms and suites — some of which are even with sitting areas and soaking tubs.There are three on-site restaurants, the most famous being The Restaurant (of which it is so aptly named), is renowned for its New England-inspired cuisine (think clam chowder and crab cakes).
