The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Have a Shot in the Hudson Valley

Known for its beauty and wineries, the region is now home to several craft distilleries producing top-shelf spirits.


1. Where to Stay

Each of the Rhinecliff Hotel's nine rooms has a balcony overlooking the Hudson.  

Look out over the Hudson at the Rhinecliff Hotel (from $160), the recently renovated boutique hotel where rooms come with balconies, wide-board flooring, and giant whirlpool baths.

Be one of few guests at the Madalin Hotel (from $199), where Eastlake-style antiques are paired with flat-screen TVs in the eleven-room inn decorated by the team behind the Chelsea Hotel's renovation. Have a nightcap at the gorgeously restored, nineteen-foot-long 1909 bar downstairs.

Cook for yourself in the airy, high-ceilinged guest cottage at the Sheeley House Bed and Breakfast (from $200). The stately brick main house dates back to the 1830s.
