Hudson Valley Hotel Named Best Resort in New York State

Travel + Leisure recognizes one Hudson Valley hotel as New York State’s best resort in its 2023 World’s Best Awards.

Situated in the Greater Northern Catskills, Wylder Windham is a hotel unlike many others. This fully equipped resort tempts visitors with everything from pickleball courts and wood-fired saunas to electric and mountain bikes and, of course, snow sports at nearby Windham Mountain. Evidently, the hype about the resort destination has spread, and it recently garnered major accolades from noted travel publication Travel + Leisure. As part of the publication’s 2023 World’s Best Awards, the Hudson Valley haven received the prestigious #1 Best Resort in New York State title. On top of that, Wylder Windham was also named #8 Best Resort in the United States.

Previously the iconic Thompson House Resort, Wylder Hotels reimagined this vintage gem with a careful restoration intended to honor the heritage of the property. The result is Wylder Windham, a reinvigorated resort with a lot to offer to its new generation of upstate adventurers. Its 20 acres of land alongside the Batavia Kill River welcome tubers, skiers, bikers and those just looking to kick back and relax around the fire pit. The spirit of the Catskills is alive and well at Wylder Windham, captured in the timeless pleasures that the land has to offer.

The resort’s seven different lodging experiences have been lovingly restored by local craftsmen to accommodate modern needs while keeping their nostalgic flare. Oak floors, custom furniture and large balconies with views of Windham Mountain and the Batavia Kill River provide lavish comfort to guests staying in rooms and suites, while bigger parties can rent the Farmhouse to celebrate their gathering or occasion.
