Save a horse, ride an Urban Cowboy…or just check into one. Bursting at the seams with rustic charm, from antler-fashioned chandeliers to robust stone hearths, this Upstate, New York lodging takes the log cabin vibes to seriously cool new heights. It’s tucked away on 68 acres of sprawling mountainside, where you can truly let it all go and bask in the beauty of nature. After setting off on an outdoor adventure, you (and your getaway guest) can get steamy in the sauna, take an al fresco forest plunge, or sit back and soak in a retro clawfoot bathtub that’s surely big enough for two. Don’t forget to end the evening by curling up – and stripping down – by the fireplace. Yee-haw.

A little bit of magic and mystery meld at this sensually atmospheric jewel box of an inn nestled in the heart of Hudson, New York. Its name nods to its artsy ambiance and slew of stylish creatives who frequent the place, as well as its eclectic array of vintage furnishings and decor inspired by the high-design eras of La Belle Époque, Art Deco, and Mid-Century Modern. What better locale to channel your inner bad-gal bohemian while you saunter into the leather-clad lounge and sip a whiskey on the rocks? By night you can play footsie in a candlelit corner, and by day you can feel free to peruse your room’s library or sample a spritz of the hotel’s signature fragrance collection, which sets the mood in more ways than one.

Gilded Age glamour meets the elegance of the English countryside at this expansive estate in the Berkshires, which has served as a seasonal sanctuary for socialites and aristocrats for over 100 years. If you’re looking for a sophisticated escape where old-school luxury reigns supreme, you’ll find it at Wheatleigh. Swipe on your poshest scarlet pout and prepare to put your most rich b*tch foot forward as you traipse around the property’s sweeping grounds, dine in the private wine cellar, and explore its maze of corridors, no doubt full of high-society secrets. Of course, you also can’t go wrong retiring to your perfectly palatial suite early — trust us, you’ll have plenty to do behind those grand closed doors.

Damsel in distress? Never heard of her. At this sumptuous chateau, you’ll feel more like the Queen of the Castle. The Gold Coast of Long Island is dotted with lavish mansions, but none hold a candle to the opulent playground that is Oheka Castle. A true gem of the Jazz Age, the home-turned-hotel played host to a rotation of raucous fetes throughout the Roaring Twenties, so where better to get your Gatsby on while indulging in some plush pampering and refined festivities of your own? Get lost among the greenery of the meticulously manicured gardens, call in a private massage for two in the comfort of your boudoir, and then get dressed in your glitziest best for a cheeky nightcap of bubbly beneath a canopy of crystal chandeliers.

The Hamptons may be swingin’ in the summer, but we’ll let you in on a little secret: Don’t sleep on it during the off season. A breezy, moody beachside weekend is a must for the fall, especially if you’re checking into Gurney’s Montauk. Setting the scene with warm, nautical interiors and a hefty dose of modern luxury, the all-in-one hotel and spa supplies everything you need for a romantic retreat by the ocean. Pack your bikini and get ready to disrobe for a day spent floating in the saltwater bath house with your boo, and perhaps spring for a facial before stepping out for an Italian-inspired dinner for two. And when the sun goes down, you’ll no doubt want to cozy up under the stars by one of the flickering outdoor fire pits, taking in the relaxing sounds of the waves hitting the sand.
