while i'm a true city dog, there's nothing quite like getting out-of-borough to appreciate all that nyc has to offer a pup. one of my family's favorite escapes is to head north to the catskill mountains and hudson valley. while i used to think the hamptons was the best nyc escape, heading north to the mountains has become equally as fabulous and we've found it to be quite a bit dog friendlier then the beach.
my fave places i've stayed (so far!):
this highly Instagram-able lodge on hunter mountain is the epitome of catskill chic living. the rooms are insanely comfy (opt for one with a fire place in chillier weather to maximize the cozy factor). the bed is insane, casper mattresses topped in frette linens made every night (and nap) especially snuggle-worthy.
every night, the staff lights up the campfires around the property and pass out s'more kits. after dinner, you can huddle around the campfire, roast s'mores and make new friends. the on-site restaurant, prospect, smelled yummy (the humans report the food was awesome) and i was welcome to dine with them on the terrace.
we just spent memorial day weekend at scribners and plan to return as soon as possible!
we've done airbnb a handful of times and always have a blast. our fave chic and comfy houses:
modern pastoral farmhouse: we loved this one so much that we're going back this summer! this farmhouse was built in the 1860s and the renovations renovations are gorgeous, down to the detailed hand plastered walls.
ultra modern glass house: the description says it all! this house is ideal if you want to be surrounded by trees - it was ideal during the fall to see all the colorful trees. the huge kitchen is a highlight if you love to cook!
