City got you feeling a bit fried? You might want to seriously consider taking off for a romantic and quasi-rustic getaway at this cozy 700-square-foot cottage near Woodstock, New York, renting for $255 per night this weekend. Located on 10 private acres, this one-bedroom is set stream-side on the edge of the woods, and a nearby state park provides more opportunities for taking in larger swaths of nature.  Other nice touches include a renovated kitchen and skylights above the bed for stargazing as you drift off.

Sure, it's a little on the "cozy" side, but what New Yorker isn't used to that? Plus, we can guarantee that the sounds of a babbling brook beat those of sirens and honking horns when you want to catch up on your reading, and resting.

Civilization is not too far away, either: the town of Woodstock, with restaurants, galleries and shops is a quick 10-minute drive. And you don’t have to unplug completely or lose your cool here; this cabin comes equipped with high speed internet and A/C, too.
