Antique furniture, roaring fireplaces and an impressive art collection come together at this new, 11-room bohemian hotel in Hudson, a village that hums with activity. Rooms are spread across three buildings, each an artful mashup of periods. Interiors were conceived by co-owners Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg, who also co-founded global beauty brand Fresh. The painted ceilings, mosaic floors and stained-glass windows are all original features that mingle with historical pieces and curios made by local craftspeople. Several of the rooms – which start at $400 for the night – take on creative personalities. The Artist room’s walls are covered in paintings, while the Writer suite has a private library. Downstairs, the hotel restaurant is located in a glass conservatory and next to a cocktail lounge set inside a restored 19th-century carriage house.

Several hotels in the Woodstock area pay homage to the city’s musical roots, but none do it better than the Hotel Dylan. For the interior design, owner Paul Covello turned to one-time Hamptonites Robert and Cortney Novogratz. They cite Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom as a source of inspiration, imbuing the hotel with a sense of play and artistic freedom. All 22 rooms offer true bohemian sophistication thanks to design a strategy that paid meticulous attention to every detail. The resulting ambiance parallels the easy, laid-back character of Woodstock and the locals who call it home. Each room, starting at $135 per night, is named after one of the rock n’ roll greats associated with the Woodstock Nation. Iconic artwork by Elliott Landy and Michael De Feo grace the walls. A winter visit guarantees plenty of cozy evenings as well as many outdoor activities thanks to the nearby Windham Mountain Resort and Belleayre Mountain.

515 Leesville Rd, Amenia, NY / Website

Positioned between the Hudson Valley and New England, Troutbeck is a picturesque portal to the Dutchess County’s remarkable riches. Dating to 1765, the Tudor-style estate hotel has attracted artists, conservationists and politicos for centuries, hosting the likes of Mark Twain, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson and the naturalist, John Burroughs. In addition to its impressive pedigree, Troutbeck is home to beautiful grounds and interior design that delights with cozy nooks and stunning guest rooms, which start at $250 per night. Narrow hallways and sitting rooms with fireplaces complete the vibe. Grab a drink at the hotel bar, then dine at The Restaurant that serves contemporary American fare, a result of a mindful dialogue between source, preparation and plate. Outside, the 250-acre estate has tons of space to roam, too. Amenities include riverside bonfires and gazebo, an enormous stone wall-enclosed garden, and The Barns' newly-opened wellness space which offers studio classes by appointment only. Troutbeck is truly the ultimate oasis just a couple of hours away from the Hamptons.
