Upstate Getaway: Eastwind Hotel & Bar
In our series of Upstate Getaways, we’re covering the best hotels with new things to do and upcoming events, inspiring your next weekend trip away from the hustle and bustle of New York City. This week, we’re introducing you to the brand new Eastwind Hotel & Bar, opening on June 1, 2018.
Located in the Catskill Mountains in Windham – just a two-hour drive from the city – the property has been transformed from a 1920s bunkhouse into an upscale boutique hotel. While still honoring its original charming features, Eastwind Hotel & Bar features the kind of urban luxury – and aesthetic – you would usually find in Scandinavia.
Cabins take inspiration from the region’s glamorous notion of camping, “glamping”, fitted with minimalistic yet warm furnishings, while a window spans across one wall to give you calming views over Windham Mountain. The hotel’s guest rooms boast a similar relaxing atmosphere, featuring all-white walls, tons of natural light and ensuite bathrooms with walk-in showers.
With a large barrel hot tub, sauna and cocktail bar on site, Eastwind Hotel & Bar definitely helps you unplug and unwind, but the surrounding area offers plenty of things to do as well. From hiking and biking on the mountain to exploring the boutiques and art galleries in the village’s Main Street – Eastwind Hotel & Bar is ideal for both adventurers and low-key wanderers. Oh, and if you’re struggling to finish that personal project or genius business plan, book one of the writer’s studio – yes, that’s a thing.
