Adirondack Cabin

You don't have to shelter yourself at home from frigid air this winter. Hunker down with a smile in the coziness of a cabin with a view, a fire, and your favorite people (or snuggle solo). New York has no shortage of unique rentals across the state. Here are six cabin getaways you won't want to miss out on this season. 

beacon

The Hudson Valley city of Beacon has blossomed into an art lover’s paradise and a popular weekend getaway thanks to the Dia Art Foundation converting a Nabisco box printing factory on the banks of the Hudson into Dia:Beacon (pictured) in 2003. Now visitors flock to this contemporary and modern art museum and to visit the galleries, restaurants, and bars that have helped make this such a lively community. While a trip up to Beacon is easily doable in a day from New York City, there’s so much more to enjoy, so why not plan your visit over a weekend (especially so you can leave time for a brewpub crawl)?
