Enjoy a romantic weekend away in the woods at any of Urban Cowboy’s suites or go all out with The Chalet, a standalone escape. The Urban Cowboy Lodge is the ultimate getaway and a crowd-pleaser for rustic, nature-loving vibes mixed with high-end luxury and unquestionable style.

Step into The Chalet and enjoy a cozy escape, complete with a fireplace, full kitchen, custom, hand-printed wallpaper encasing the room, and plush, luxury trimmings. Make space for more guests with the optional second bedroom or spread out and enjoy the time away in a cabin you can call home, starting at $199 a night.

A five-minute drive from Belleayre Mountain, guests of the lodge enjoy exclusive access to the ski slopes nearly anytime they wish. Check out the mountain’s 171 skiable acres, 50 trails, two parks and eight lifts, covering a variety of expertise levels and experiences. Enjoy all the seasonal snow sports you can handle; check out pass prices here.

For the ultimate mountain experience, Urban Cowboy Lodge guests can rent out Plattekill Mountain for the day to the tune of $4,500.

While these fashionable gems embody the fantasy Paris sojourn, InterContinental Paris Le Grand Hotel & Spa can as well, even as it houses 458 suites and rooms. It’s worth noting there are also marked advantages to its size (as a stellar spot for destination weddings and business conferences) and central location in the 9th arrondissment.
