New York has no shortage of fabulous places to stay, but if you're looking for something truly unique—whether it's because of the one-of-a-kind decor or the fascinating history—these lodging options will put a special twist on your upcoming New York State getaway.
The Adelphi Hotel
This 140-year-old gem just got a facelift with a three-and-a-half year restoration. The Adelphi Hotel is the last surviving hotel of Saratoga Springs’ “golden age” and it’s located perfectly for exploring downtown by foot.
Scribner’s Catskill Lodge
Scribner’s Catskills Lodge has been welcoming adventurers since 1966, and all of the 38 rooms in this swanky ski lodge include features like sunken living rooms, lofted sleeping areas, or fireplaces. Guests don’t have to travel far from their rooms for excellent dining as on-site restaurant Prospect serves up yummy cocktails and tasty dinners nightly.
Foxfire Mountain House
Looking for a storybook getaway? Head to Foxfire Mountain House for a boho-chic Catskill hideaway that’s more than 100 years old—though it’s been operating in its current incarnation since 2016. The ten-acre site is hopping with photo opportunities, from the natural lily pool to the beautiful guest rooms stocked with hand-made furniture. It’s no wonder this place tends to book up with weddings during the summer. (Translation: Book your stay now!)
Mill House Inn
Check out the Mill House Inn in the Hamptons for your home away from home in this iconic summer community—which also happens to be pretty lovely in the winter. Here you’ll wake up to home-baked cookies, freshly squeezed juice, and a warm welcome from the friendly innkeepers.
Union Gables Inn
Every room in the Queen Anne style mansion Union Gables Inn is unique, decked out with vintage furnishings and fixtures. But this kid- and pet-friendly place is far from stuffy—it’s been awarded the TripAdvisor Award of Excellence and is certified as a GreenLeader Hotel.
The 1850 House Inn & Tavern
The 1850 House Inn and Tavern is not your average B&B. This legendary Ulster County Hotel has a rich history within Rosendale, having been open for two centuries. Within its 10 guest rooms, you’ll discover oversized antique photographs and postcards from the collections of Rosendale families.
Red Coach Inn
The Red Coach Inn is the perfect destination for vacationers looking for a great stay near Niagara Falls. And when we say “near," we mean it’s approximately 300 yards from the falls itself! Opened for business in 1923, this English style inn is the perfect escape for the whole family.
The Graham and Co.
Located near the legendary Pheonicia Diner, this boutique hotel is a beautifully understated Catskills escape, welcoming vacationers looking for a relaxing weekend in the woods. At the Graham and Co., enjoy amenities like free bikes, swimming, badminton courts, firepits, tubing, and skiing.
