Eastwind Hotel & Bar
5088 Rte. 23, Windham
The Eastwind Hotel is another wonderful result of the Catskills renaissance. Nestled into Windham Mountain—two hours from New York City (depending on traffic)—this boutique hotel is ideal for those looking to unplug, get in touch with nature, or enjoy a romantic getaway. There are only nineteen cozy guest rooms and suites, which really makes it more of a B&B than a full-on hotel, designed with a mix of contemporary and vintage that fits in seamlessly with its natural surroundings. There are loads of outdoorsy things to do—hiking, skiing, horseback riding—or you can just post up in the oversized hot tub.
