Warm Up Chill Out

When the leaves and snow begin to fall, the Hudson Valley offers the best in frosty fantasies: crackling fireplaces, thick hot chocolate, heavy down blankets, and warm, cozy getaways.

Nothing beats a warm hearth on a cold night, especially at one of our first-rate hotels, inns, or resorts. Emerson Resort and Spa combines charming exclusivity with breathtaking mountain views, each suite furnished with gas fireplaces, Swiss showers, and air-jetted tubs. The 18 individualized rooms at Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa also feature personal fireplaces for a warm winter’s night by a comforting hearth in a room of one’s own.

The Hudson Valley is home to some of the world’s most majestic mountains for hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, and leaf-peeping—the Catskill Mountains, the Hudson Highlands, and the Adirondacks attract high-altitude enthusiasts from all over. For an affordable resort with dozens of indoor and outdoor activity options, Mohonk Mountain House offers a variety of seasonal specials. Snowshoe or ski through the surrounding 40,000 acres of forest, then warm up in their world-class spa. Or, for easy access to the Catskill ski areas and an unforgettable lodging experience, book a stay at the Deer Mountain Inn in Tannersville. Steeped in local history, this rustic lodge is all about the tufted leather armchairs, luxuriously overstuffed floor pillows, and ways to get warm after a day’s expeditions.

A winter getaway means different things for different people. If you’re truly seeking to get away from the chaos of everyday life, The Garrison provides undisturbed solitude in meditative quiet, the soothing room colors and complimentary in-room gratuities providing the ideal environment for reflection while the snow gathers outside. For a getaway within walking distance of one of the most creative towns in America, The Woodstock Inn on the Millstream offers private country cottages with terraces and gardens that border Millstream in the gorgeous autumn colors or the quiet winter wonder.
