(2017/4/12 10:18:51)

New York City isinfamously sweltering in summer, and most full-time residents begin thinking ofescape sometime in spring. While the Hamptons, Fire Island, Montauk, AsburyPark, et al are top priorities for some, there’s plenty of charm and relief ina beach-less getaway (provided there are pools, lakes or springs for you to dipin). From the Adirondacks to Saratoga Springs, Woodstock, and all up and downthe Hudson River, there are countless towns and hideaways across the state thatprovide welcome reprieve from the city—thanks to lush greenery, rolling hills,burbling streams and more. We have selected some of our favorite hotels andlodges that each serve as a much-needed oasis from the big city.

Brentwood Hotel,Saratoga Springs

Drivingonto the Brentwood Hotel’s gravel courtyard—which itself clamors with growls ofwelcome—one can’t help but let out a sigh of relief. It’s a four-hourcommitment from NYC, and the Taconic State Parkway doesn’t offer much to lookat (in the colder months). Despite the petite nature of these lodgings—at onestory, and 12 rooms—the reception desk makes a big impression with its highgloss black paint, antique furnishings, and tasteful gold embellishments. Amotel it isn’t, the Brentwood seems to be declaring despite its former life asone built in the 1970s (the only thing preserved is the L-shaped structure andits name). It is, however, a labor of love from its owners Studio Tack, whotook a break from designing other company’s properties to try out their own forthe first time.

Rivertown Lodge,Hudson

Whilethe Rivertown Lodge doesn’t look like much when you pull up (or walk the 20minutes from the Amtrak train station), it has a relaxed grandeur thatinstantaneously embraces those who walk inside. Formerly a 1920s movie theaterlater converted into a motel in 1958, the 27-room hotel on Warren Street isdecorated with custom and vintage finds, resulting in an eclectic but not fussyaesthetic. In the standard-sized rooms, guests will find no closets or bureaus(there’s a rod to hang jackets). All one needs in life is a bed, a comfyarmchair, a Bluetooth Marshall speaker, and a shelf to place keys and wallet.The visual message is: leave all your stuff behind at home and lose yourselfhere.

Whiteface Logs,Adirondacks

Thisfive-star hotel, named after one of the High Peaks, is without a doubt the mostluxurious accommodation in the Adirondacks. Whiteface Lodge does an impressivejob of keeping you entertained on-site, despite the hiking that beckons andnature that surrounds. There is a 56-seat movie theater that screens threefilms a night (with unlimited free popcorn), an old-school bowling alley andgame room, tennis courts, skating rink, nightly s’mores by the fire. Take theunderground tunnel to the pools and hot tubs; guests also have access to the spa’seucalyptus steam room and sauna. And because you’re in the middle of the woods,there’s a lot of space: the smallest room type is a one bedroom suite that canfit a family of four.

Graham &Hotel, Catskills

Designedby four NYC creatives who have long-preferred the Catskills to the Hamptonscrowd, Graham & Co. Hotel is an idyllic retreat: a rustic-yet-modernalternative to “grandma-ish spots” or expensive resorts. The former CobblestoneMotel is on a three-acre swath surrounded by mountains, sky and river. Sincerenovations incorporating minimalist design elements, rustic furnishings andintriguing barn-sale finds, it’s been transformed. The main block contains 13rooms, ranging from cozy singles to deluxe doubles. Some include kitchenettesand each has an iPod-enabled Tivoli radio. There are also bunk-style rooms andplenty of space outdoors for guests to sprawl on the lawn, hang in the hammock,read in Adirondack chairs by the fire-pit or swim in the pool.

Scribner’sCataskills Lodge, Hunter

Thishotel’s bones were constructed back in 1966 and the facility accrued a storiedhistory, all while falling into disrepair over the decades. That is, until itwas purchased by first-time hotelier Marc Chodock and hospitality veteranGlennon Travis. The two called upon Studio Tack design firm and the result is amid-century-inspired, 38-room mountain lodge with substantial amenities to keepeven the antsiest set of guests occupied. Set atop a hillside with a clear viewof Hunter Mountain, Scribner’s represents another stage forward for theCatskills and neighboring Hudson Valley. It’s an all-season destination thatembraces the region’s beauty. You can get there without a car, and bring yourpet along for it all—even to the impressive on-site restaurant. As much of thematerials on site as possible were sourced locally—the chairs, sofas and tableswere all produced in the region. All of the signature pine is sourced from alocal lumber yard. Regarding the aforementioned restaurant, known as Prospect,from the beer menu (which incorporates Arrowood Farm) to the ingredients,they’re striving to source within a certain radius around the hotel.

Deer Mountain Inn,Tannersville

Withonly six bedrooms (and two adjacent cottages), the Deer Mountain Inn yields anintimate, wooded sensation. Traditional luxury contrasts serenity, year round.Though, the on-site restaurant is definitely a social hub. Set among 168 acres,the inn’s property contains private trail which lead directly into neighboringstate parks. As for additional outdoor activities, Deer Mountain Inn is inclose proximity to plenty of advanced hiking trails, but a true regionalstand-out happens to be the Town Tinker tubing in Phoenicia, where one tripdown the river varies from relaxing to wild.
