NYC Weekend Getaway – Out Top Picks! It’s been quite challenging for the past few months, and now that sweater weather is here, it’s a good idea to take a little breather and enjoy the autumn season (of course, by still following health protocols in place).


NYC Weekend Getaway


What are some places you spend a perfect long weekend outside New York? Here’s a list:


Hudson, New York


Hudson is located two hours north of New York on the Hudson River. It is a creativity mecca with galleries, shops, restaurants, and other architectural gems.


Spending the weekend in Hudson is a weekend well spent because of the vibrant artistic community that is off to give you the respite you need.


Where to Stay?


We’d say you stay at the Marker Hotel. It is an intimate 11-room property housed in three historical buildings in the heart of Hudson – the place itself is a spectacle to behold.


The hotel owners Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg curated the place with a combination of antiques and bohemian design – a combination that will lure you back to the 19th century Industrial, La Belle Epoque, Art Deco, and Mid-Century periods.


What to Eat?


You don’t need to go any further because the Marker’s Cafe is ready to serve you for breakfast and lunch. Enjoy their fresh pastries, viennoiseries, soups, and salads.


You can also try Backbar, an outdoor restaurant that offers a pan-Asian menu focusing on Malaysian, Thailand, and Vietnam dishes. Grab a beer and try their Black Pepper Wings. Dan Dan Noodles or their Sweet Potato Curry.


The Berkshires


The Berkshires offer scenic sceneries from beautiful landscapes and pastoral hikes. It’s also a cultural mecca, as it is known for the abundance of art and culture.


The Berkshires is located in the Massachusetts country and stretches from Williamstown in the north and Great Barrington in the south.


Where to Stay?


Located in a 20-acre land surrounded by woodlands, orchards, and gardens and a remarkable view of the green Berkshire Hills, The Inn at Kenmore Hall is just the place to be for a long weekend.


However, it’s not only the view outside that melts your worries away because the interiors were transformed into a magnificent blend of antiquity and modernity.


Another great place to stay in the Granville House. It is an intimate place to stay with only five rooms available. Granville House is your home away from home because its innkeepers, Terry and Terri Coughlin, creates this personal space as your weekend oasis.


What to Eat?


Complete your weekend getaway by dining at Chef Daniel Boulud’s Michelin-starred restaurant – Cafe Boulud. Enjoy their French-inspired classics with ingredients from local farms. Their vegetable-driven dishes are a must-try, too!


Missed Mark Firth’s dishes for Dinner and Marlow & Sons? Well, miss it no more because firth opened the Prairie Whale in Great Barrington, Mass. Specializing in farm to table meals, you’ll surely indulge yourself with the region’s fresh produce.


Litchfield Country, Connecticut


Litchfield Country is heaven for New York’s fashion media and finance experts who like a low-key, calm but chic place for a getaway. With colonial towns, splendid landscapes, and a lot of places to shop, Litchfield Country is a good place to spend your long weekend in.


Where to Stay?


The Mayflower Inn and Spa underwater a renovation that transformed the property into something even more beautiful. The whimsy and artsy mix of New York designer Celerie Kemble breath a new life to this property.


It also has a 20,000 square foot spa, which is located in the woods – a sanctuary of serenity as you enjoy a massage and a facial.


Where to Eat?


The Garden Room, Mayflower, and Spa’s new fine dining restaurant will have April Bloomfield over the fall season. Complement your wonderful stay and relaxing spa experience by enjoying their signature steak tartare, cauliflower Tikka Masala, grilled heritage pork loin, and sticky toffee pudding.


You should also give Arethusa al tavalo a visit. It is part of the Arethusa dairy and farm mini-empire of George Malkemus. Their menu changes daily, but it is nothing short of sumptuous.


Prepare to be pleasantly surprised with their desserts can blow your mind, too. Try their almond and toasted coconut homemade ice cream.
