Cozy Winter Weekend Getaways from New York - An indoor pool at sunset, light streaming through the dozens of windows that make up the walls.

1. The Lodge at Woodloch in Hawley, PA

  • Distance from NYC: 2 hours, 15 minutes
  • Why We Recommend It: super cozy, plentiful outdoor activities, luxurious amenities
  • Rate: call to inquire

This Lodge takes the cake when it comes to comfy, wrap-me-up-in-a-blanket winter feels: It boasts 11 cozy fireplaces or firepits throughout, an indoor HydroMassage Waterwall and a year-round, Horizon Edge Whirlpool with both forest and lake views. Aside from the well-celebrated spa, you may enjoy eagle watching (yup, it’s a thing), ice fishing and snowshoeing. The property also recently opened a salt sauna, cold water bucket shower and snow room, designed to be used together in order to melt away stress and boost wellness.

2. Ocean House in Westerly, RI

  • Distance from NYC: 3 hours
  • Why We Recommend It: spectacular ocean views, five-star restaurant and spa
  • Rate: call to inquire

The ocean may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of a winter getaway, but in the treasured Rhode Island hideaway of Watch Hill (also frequented by the likes of Taylor Swift, who owns a home here), something just makes it feel right. Plus, what’s more eerily romantic than seeing the ocean waves crash against the sand during chilly temps from the safety of your warm cocoon? Featuring a piano, a grand stone-faced fireplace, architectural columns and antique furniture in the lobby, rooms upstairs are coastal cozy with plush beds and tasteful décor. Bonus: Many rooms feature soaking tubs.

3. Urban Cowboy Lodge in Big Indian, NY

  • Distance from NYC: 2 hours and 30 minutes
  • Why We Recommend It: fire pits, decadent soaking tubs, great for hiking
  • Rate: from $200/night

A wilderness retreat reminiscent of a dude ranch (with a decidedly contemporary and trendy twist), this special property boasts 28 guest rooms, plus an adorable freestanding chalet and cabin. Taxidermy details, weathered woods, mixed prints, pot belly stoves, roaring fireplaces and picture windows exposing views of the surrounding Catskill mountains make this one a charmer. Tip: Book one of the two Alpine bathing suites with a black and rose gold gilded soaking tub to really elevate the experience.

4. The Inns of Aurora Resort & Spa in Aurora, NY

  • Distance from NYC: 4 hours
  • Why We Recommend It: impeccably designed rooms in gorgeously restored turn of the century buildings, state-of-the-art spa with a focus on hydrotherapy
  • Rate: from $268/night

This Fingers Lakes treasure is actually a collection of five properties, all built in the late 19th and early 20th century and restored to perfection (but often with quirky, modern sensibilities) within the past 20 years. Stay at the central Aurora Inn for a classic, elegant vibe or at the newly restored Wallcourt Hall (formerly a girls’ dormitory) for a more casual, modern getaway. There’s a farm-to-table restaurant on-site, not to mention the state-of-the-art spa—book a treatment and get full-day access to the saunas, hydrotherapy pools, indoor and outdoor plunge pools and complimentary café. And don’t leave the area without stopping at one of the region’s top wineries, known for Rieslings and Cabernet Francs.

  • Distance from NYC: 2 hours, 10 minutes
  • Why We Recommend It: pond-side rooms, outdoor fire pits, dining packages inclusive of daily breakfast, beer/wine happy hour and three-course dinner
  • Rate: from $450/night

If you’re looking for a place to get deep into a new book, we think we’ve found it. Grab a blanket, cozy up next to the stone fireplace and be amazed at how quickly the stress of city living dissolves. It’s worth knowing that a select number of Foxfire’s rooms have shared bathrooms, but there are also six queen rooms with their own ensuite bathrooms. Either way, with plenty of places to spread out (including our fave: the outdoor glass house atrium overlooking a fire pit), you’ll feel like you have the place to yourself.

  • Distance from NYC: 2 hours and 30 minutes
  • Why We Recommend It: extensive food options, great outdoor exploring, newly renovated
  • Rate: from $225/night

This is what we call peak hygge. This upstate favorite is convenient to Hunter Mountain, but we wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to skip the slopes and go straight for the après-ski menu of hot pretzels, crab dip and a burnt maple old fashioned at the on-site restaurant, Prospect. The well-curated common areas, filled with books, tchotchkes and a contemporary fireplace are always a hit with guests, as is the outdoor fire pit. There is even a beautiful garden that guests can walk through regardless of season called Scribner’s Garden, where some of the restaurant’s produce is grown.

  • Why We Recommend It: stunning forest views, private home, sledding on-site
  • Rate: from $216/night

Full of peace, tranquility and plenty of solitude, Indian Lake is quieter in the winter months, when the popular wilderness camping area thins out. At Bear Lodge, you can enjoy the vibe of camping and keep warm and cozy in a log cabin, complete with cathedral chandeliers, plenty of wood details, antler chandeliers, taxidermy, a wood stove and three (!) outdoor fire pits. The home has vintage cabin decor and plenty of nostalgia to warm up your soul, too. A furry pup (or up to four, actually) can accompany you on your trip since the property is pet-friendly. The home is located on 11 acres backed by state land, meaning it has phenomenal sledding hills, and guests can ski at the nearby Gore Mountain, too.

A brick fireplace, dark wood moldings, crisp white and cream walls, reading nooks with packed bookshelves and plenty of comfy chairs to slink into are just a few of the details that make this property in Hudson, NY a charmer. Woman-owned, the expertly converted Queen Anne-style property has an emphasis on feng shui, which we of course appreciate, and luxe details, like Frette bath towels and Lockwood New York bath products. With just eight airy, well-appointed rooms, you can keep to yourself or make friends with the neighbors.

The bucolic town of Williamstown is surrounded by forested paradise, and the obvious setting for a boutique property modeled after a classic American farmhouse.

Stay for the contemporary art, which includes photography, paintings, pottery and sculptures sprinkled throughout. Alongside fireplaces and fire pits and other places to keep warm, The Williams Inn has quick access to nature and lots of cycling, canoeing, kayaking and rock climbing if you’re so inclined.

  • Why We Recommend It: holiday festivities, free sport rentals, easy walk to rest of town
  • Rate: from $229/night

No matter the season, Kennebunkport is one of those towns in coastal Maine that will transport you to a different world, especially when a roaring fire is in view. Located in the downtown area, guests will find a resort that goes the extra mile for the holiday season—in fact, you might even turn up to find festive decorations in your guest room. In the earlier winter months, the hotel turns into a Christmas Village, complete with a curling rink, festive decor, intimate igloos and private gondolas on the outdoor patio, where you can scoop up warm Maine lobster dip, Rockefeller oysters or chocolate and peppermint hot chocolate.

When we dream about having our very own reading nook, this is what we picture. And it happens to be inside a renovated 18th-century country estate where Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway and Ralph Waldo Emerson once stayed. The Barns at Troutbeck is Troutbeck’s sparkling new wellness facility offering guests a suite of treatments, like trauma resolution, meditation, facial acupuncture, dry saunas, yoga and more. Natural beauty and a woodland paradise surround the historic property, all of which can be enjoyed from the outstanding on-site restaurant and cocktail bar.

  • Rate: from $275/night

This former summer camp has been transformed by a sister duo into a luxurious retreat with a variety of accommodations. Our favorite? The snuggly cabins featuring fireplaces, outdoor patios and heated floors. There’s also a picture-perfect secluded lakefront cottage, plus a large farmhouse for bigger families and groups of friends, and camp-style houses with bunk beds if that’s more your vibe. This winter, the property’s garden will transform into an ice skating rink, which will double as a place for magical private dinners, with tables set on a carpet right on the ice, surrounded by twinkling white lights.

  • Distance from NYC: 1 hour, 45 minutes
  • Why We Recommend It: affordable, great local farms and breweries, an infrared sauna
  • Rate: from $227/night

There are four distinct buildings that make up this luxurious hotel. The main building of this sleek escape in the historic uptown of Kingston was notably once the federal bank of New York. Its stately vibe remains, but chic details, like the wood-paneled bar, plush velvet sofas and lush greenery, set it over the top. The vibrant hotel restaurant is led by a James Beard-award winning restaurateur and guests can now co-work through a partnership with Barnfox, which means you can take advantage of lower mid-week rates and get some work done too.
