Tucked away on nine private mountaintop acres, Casa Magda is the perfect spot for a cool-kids getaway to the Catskill Mountains. Inside the house, minimalist sensibility, mid-century treasures, and a playful collection of vintage furniture coexists to create a fun vibe; at night, the living room transforms into a dance floor, with the help of mood lighting consisting of neon lights, and of course, a disco ball. Use the hand-picked vinyl on hand (or a Sonos amp) for the perfect dance party soundtrack. All four bedrooms are located on the main level, while upstairs a loft has been transformed into an entertainment room and boasts a 100” projection screen. Guests can choose from a curated collection of Blu-Rays and DVDs from comedy to drama, horror to anime—movie night is made complete with a Bose surround sound system. This mountain retreat feels a world away from it all, but it's just 5 minutes into the town of Windham for supply runs, hiking, or winter sports at Windham Mountain. (Note: Windham is open in summer as well; check their website for events or take a skyride to hiking trails.) Further afoot, other nearby adventures include waterfalls, swimming holes, and charming towns throughout the Northern Catskills.

Outside, a sweet little yard that was once a pasture is now fenced in with a firepit, complete with a beautiful deck. Rainy day? Light up the stone fireplace in the living room and get cozy.

It was recently renovated by a guy in the film industry, so it's no surprise that there are delightful vignettes throughout the home–including the very planty bathroom, or the massive fireplace with a full-size skeleton lounging above it. A literally perfect getaway for big groups, especially in summer, with a bonfire pit, outdoor charcoal BBQ, and a private pond.
Antique shopping, cozy rooms, creekside bonfires, and eating like a king. This is the experience at The DeWitt Oak Hill, just 135 miles from New York City in the Great Northern Catskills. The four-room inn is loaded with antiques, collected by owners Dorothee Walliser and Diane Ormrod—and they're all for sale. (Well, almost all.) The constant flow of items ...
