This six bedroom luxury cabin, Pinewood Lodge by Stay at Lina, is located in Catskill, NY and sleeps up to 10 guests. The Pinewood's renovation was designed to include all the modern amenities you might find at a hotel — from its sparkling clean, freshly tiled bathrooms with rain showers, a primary suite with a soaking tub, and TV's in most bedrooms. Gather round the wood burning fireplace with your morning coffee or evening cocktail, then retire to the oversize hot tub overlooking a large yard surrounded by trees. A firepit at the back of the home is perfect for taking in starry nights.
This stunning midcentury modern home located in Newburgh, NY, was built in 1949 by the preeminent American architect Philip Johnson. Wolfhouse bears much in common with Johnson’s most famous home, The Glass House, erected the same year. Set atop a hillside just north of the Newburgh-Beacon bridge with panoramic views of the Hudson River, it was meticulously restored to its original condition in 2020. It’s most recently been reimagined as both a rental home, and also a cultural space with year-round arts programming.

Just 100 miles from NYC, newly opened boutique hotel The Rex was designed to bring a nature driven experience to Philadelphia and New York City urban-dwelling explorers and travelers alike. Set just outside the Promised Land State Park in the Poconos Mountains, access to the outdoors waits just outside your hotel room with the ability to hike, kayak, paddle board, mountain bike, snowshoe, snowmobile and cross country ski within a 20 minute radius of the Rex. (Or spend your days on the hotel grounds by the bonfire and soaking in the cedar tub — we won’t judge!)
