That time-honored saying in real estate—location, location, location—applies perfectly to Troutbeck, which is super convenient to skiing and snowtubing outings to Mohawk Mountain Ski Area, Catamount Mountain Resort, and Butternut Ski & Tubing Center. Experienced cross-country skiers and snowshoers, your adventure awaits at Wethersfield Estate & Garden in Stanfordville. Afterwards, hit the sauna at The Barns for a steam. Troutbeck’s Winter Wander incentive includes a $50 hotel credit per night of stay and breakfast daily. (Use code “winterwander” through March 31 to book a stay through the end of March. Excludes New Year’s weekend.) troutbeck.com

Foxfire Mountain House

Mount Tremper

Skiing is practically synonymous with winter in the Catskills, but Foxfire Mountain House offers the perfect landing pad for anyone more prone to hole up and hang out indoors. The main lounge features a giant river stone-framed fireplace where guests enjoy reading or playing board games with a drink in hand. Firepits abound, including one next to the property’s iconic glass house, which is another common space to unwind. Beyond the 11 rooms in Foxfire’s main inn, guests can reserve a private four-bedroom cottage with a full kitchen and two wood-burning fireplaces. Plus, it’s a 25-minute drive from popular ski destination Belleayre Mountain. foxfiremountainhouse.com

Wildflower Farms

The mix of cabins, cottages, and suites at Wildflower Farms were designed with expansive windows to flood the spaces with natural light, intentionally blurring the boundary between inside and out. Craft an ideal to-do list with spa treatments at Thistle, hands-on workshops (floral focaccia classes? Yes, please!), and a half-or full-day winter hiking excursion with a skilled local guide in the Mohonk Preserve or Minnewaska State Park. Savoring the new American menu at on-site restaurant Clay is a sublime way to ease into evening, then wrap up the day with a nightcap around the fire on The Great Porch. aubergeresorts.com/wildflower-farms

Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa

Milton

Serenity is the unofficial motto at this luxurious, picturesque retreat. The 75-acre estate offers 10 rooms in the main house, plus eight unique private cottages, some of which are pet-friendly if you want to bring your dog. Though the on-site spa is currently being renovated, massages, facials, and other treatments are being offered in an alternate location overlooking the Hudson River. Proximity to some of the area’s big draws—such as the Walkway Over the Hudson, the Culinary Institute of America, Dia: Beacon, Whitecliff Vineyard, Benmarl Winery, and the Bardavon 1869 Opera House—makes Buttermilk Falls an appealing home base for a weekend. buttermilkfallsinn.com
