Last-Minute Getaway

Get a group together for a woodland getaway this weekend in Cold Spring

If this week's heatwave has you itching to get out of the city, we think we've found the perfect antidote, in the form of this cozy "woodland retreat" property, located near the Cold Spring and Beacon Metro North stops upstate and still accepting reservations for this coming weekend.

The four-bedroom, two-bath home sleeps eight guests, and is asking $575/night (for a minimum stay of two nights), meaning it's best suited to a renter with a crew of friends (or a pair of families) ready to rally for a last-minute trip. It sits on an 11-acre property, meaning plenty of opportunity for scenic hikes, but there's also space to enjoy at home, in the form of a large living room and kitchen area, a separate living room on the lower level, and a backyard patio with sitting space and a grill:


On top of that, there appears to be a separate deck for sitting and soaking in the views, as well as a more fenced in—but comfortably appointed—outdoor sitting area:

The listing notes that the kitchen is fully stocked with any appliances and equipment you might need, and the bedrooms look to be spacious, and filled with natural light thanks to large windows:

One of the bathrooms has a large shower, and there's a jacuzzi tub in the other:

The listing notes free wifi, as well as proximity to attractions including Dia: Beacon, Storm King, Fahnestock State Park, and various other options for hiking, swimming, antiquing, and more. Not a bad way to come back from a week of stifling city temperatures, and incessant "air quality" warnings.
