Cozy Weekend Upstate

by Rebecca Darakhshan

Nov 15, 2023

I just got back from the most epic weekend in Upstate New York, and I’m excited to spill the details on our getaway to Hunter Mountain.

Picture this: an Airbnb straight out of our dreams, a pitstop at the Instagram-worthy Wildflower Farms, and enough chill time to rival a month of Sundays. Grab a cup of coffee (or a mimosa, no judgment here), and let’s dive into a perfect weekend escape.New York

We kick-started our road trip with Wildflower Farms, an Auberge property that’s basically a Pinterest board brought to life. Lunch at Clay, its on-site restaurant, was all about farm-to-table goodness and the kind of ambiance that makes you forget the chaos of city life. Post-lunch, we snagged a spot on The Great Porch, huddled around the fire pit and just soaked in the pretty views of the Shawangunk Ridge. I mean, talk about vibes. Afterwards, we hopped back in the car, blasting our road trip playlist toward our Airbnb.New York

Let me tell you about this Airbnb: It’s the stuff of legends. Private sauna? Check. Outdoor hot tub? Double-check. An outdoor projector for impromptu movie nights under the stars? Triple-check. And to top it off, a fire pit for those s’mores lovers. It was basically our adult playground.New York New York

Our days were a mix of culinary adventures (cooking like Gordon Ramsay, or at least attempting to), getting artsy with some candle making and, of course, keeping the wine flowing while having Gilmore Girls on repeat.New York

Sunday brunch at Inness, a luxury hotel & resort in Accord, New York, was the classiest farewell we could’ve asked for: bacon, egg & cheese and mimosas to cap off the weekend. Upstate New York, you’ve got a piece of our hearts, and we’ll definitely be back for more!
