- Best places to stay in New York State
Stretching across 55,000 square miles of spectacular lake and mountain scenery, New York State – aka the Empire State – is a study in contrast, the biggest being between the vibrant metropolis of New York City and the tranquil beauty of its rural hinterland. Geographically close, but entirely different from the manic buzz of downtown Manhattan and the 8.5 million population of greater New York City, the best places to stay in New York state are those that offer access to the state’s superlative offering of family-friendly outdoor adventure and nature, combining with history, art and culture and many culinary highlights.
From majestic mountains, cities and lakes to rolling pastoral farmlands and vineyards, New York State has a thrilling combination of components that add up to one of the US’s most exciting holiday destinations, but a well-kept secret from many travellers from outside the country.
From Long Island to the Hudson Valley, Niagara to the Catskills and the Capital/Saratoga district, the Adirondacks, Finger Lakes and Thousand Islands Seaway, this constantly surprising heartland has so much to love, and is ideal for every kind of holiday experience.
From the fabulous skiing in Lake Placid (host of the 1980 Winter Olympics) to other strenuously outdoorsy walking and water-borne experiences, to the romantic, to the kid-friendly and supremely relaxing: The best places to stay in New York reflect that wonderful diversity right on the doorstep of one of the world’s great cities.
For a luxury rural retreat
- One of the grandest properties in the 6 million-acre Adirondack Park, Whiteface Lodge, Lake Placid is a byword for homely luxury. It is only a couple of decades old but is the elite choice for winter sports, spa experiences and soaking up the grandeur of the mountain scenery in all seasons.
- Oheka Castle, Huntingdon, Long Island, was built by a Gatsby-like figure in 1919 as the backdrop to his lavish parties, and this astonishing French chateau and its gorgeous formal gardens dominate Long Island’s gold coast. Surely one of the US’s grandest and most distinctive historic hotels, winning multiple awards for service.
- More European-inspiration is in evidence at the Mirbeau Inn and Spa, Skaneateles. This one taking its cute landscaping cues from the paintings of Monet and other French painters. World class spa and fitness centre, fine dining and all a short drive from Rochester and Syracuse.
For upstate explorers
- Looking like a quaint British country pub, located deep in the Finger Lakes wine country, Morgan Samuels Inn, a delightful early19th century house with a strong historical backstory, offers a distinctive away-from-it-all welcome, in which fire-lit rooms, stunning views and sophisticated cuisine are just some of the elements that make up a magical experience.
- A grand Victorian mansion and the city’s original and award-winning boutique hotel, The Mansion on Delaware Avenue, Buffalo is the ideal location to explore this attractive city. Perfect for the Niagara Falls and that great American arts treasure house the Albright-Knox gallery.
- Formerly a university club building, The Inn on Broadway, Rochester, is a relatively recent development that has already built up a strong following in this pleasant academic town on the shores of Lake Ontario. Old world charm is retained, though modern conveniences abound.
And for those who just want a handy weekend escape from the city…
- Why not try The Graham & Co, an authentic and unpretentious Catskills experience, just a couple of hours from NYC. Swimming pool, hammocks… need we say more?
- Or for something a bit more upmarket, how about The Quogue Club at Quogue, in the Hamptons. Lovely location, great sea views, and only 90 mins from downtown.
