Well, it is not what you think! Sure there is the word hotel, but it doesn't interfere with the experience at all.

Three different Scandinavian A-frame cabins house convenient and comfortable bedding, private bathrooms, sauna, barbecue, and even Wi-Fi so out there in the wild.

It does feel like a home away from home, and there is just so much for you to do too, such as reading, arranging for a large campfire at night, and doing some exploration if you feel like it.

Address: 5088 NY-23, Windham, NY 12496.

You get access to the wondrous stretch of private land in the Catskills, and it is about a 2-hour drive from New York City, so it is reasonably far from the city but not too far.

You can rent as many sites as you want or depending on how many people are with you. Each site provides you with a luxury bed, fire pit with a grill, shower and restroom, and beautiful natural surroundings all around you.
