If you’re yearning to safely step out of your home, there’s hope. While travel to many destinations may have been put on pause, the Hudson Valley is making sure that not all getaways have to be put on hold. There are plenty of exciting adventures to explore close to home. Here’s a sampling!

Join us for a day, a weekend, or an extended retreat

Buttermilk Falls’ extraordinary 75-acre Hudson River estate offers a remarkable selection of lodgings, a world-class spa, Henry’s at the Farm restaurant, an organic kitchen garden and orchard, trails, and an animal sanctuary. The 1764 Main Inn offers ten beautiful rooms, along with eight unique private cottages, carriage suites, and guest houses. Weddings and Meetings staff and services offer indoor and outdoor reception and conference sites — some with Hudson River vistas. Guests and visitors are welcome to stroll through the orchards, gardens, and visit the Livestock Barn and Aviary House. Visit for the day, an evening, a weekend, a week-long retreat …or for your very special event.

Explore a hidden treasure

Surrounded by the splendor of the Catskill Mountains and the Esopus Creek, the Emerson Resort & Spa is a hidden treasure located a mere two hours from Manhattan. You don’t need to be an overnight guest to explore the Emerson.  Book a treatment at the nature-inspired Spa, get some retail love at The Shops at Emerson, see the Kaleidoshow at the World’s Largest Kaleidoscope, or enjoy a meal at the Emerson’s signature restaurant, Woodnotes Grille. Overnight guests can choose from the cozy comfort of the Lodge or the spacious rooms of the contemporary Inn. Dogs are welcome at this ideal road-trip getaway.

Try a new dining destination

After operating the famed Il Barilotto in the village of Fishkill for almost two decades, restaurateur, Scott Rosenberg has moved down the street to open “Il Figlio Enoteca.”  Il Figlio (translates to “the son”) is a multi-level restaurant focusing on bringing the flavors of Italy and the Mediterranean to the Hudson Valley. Combine that with an expansive cocktail and wine program and you have one of the most anticipated restaurant openings for 2021!
