• A Hoboken Girl Getaway to Woodstock Way in Woodstock, NY

    Work hard, play hard — the motto of the Hoboken Girl team. To live true to our words, we recently took a little office staff getaway to Woodstock, NY and made a weekend {well – few weekdays} of glamping happen at Woodstock Way, the newly-built hotel in the center of this hip town. Read on for a peek at our stay at Woodstock Way, a bit about Woodstock, and all the things to do in this area of the Hudson Valley for a quick weekend getaway:

    How to Get There

    Take 95 North to 17 — pretty much the whole way. The trip is about an hour and a half to two hours depending on traffic — which is not bad with some good tunes and snacks, OFC.

    Woodstock Way

    You’ll hit country roads a bit before arriving at Woodstock Way, and though it feels like WW is in the middle of nowhere upon parking, there’s an adorable village about a stone’s throw from check-in — aka the main drag of Woodstock — filled with shops, eateries, and even a few bars. And yes, you’ll still have cell service, so you can post pics like this:

    The lobby at check-in sets the tone for the glamping that is about to go down. And the term ‘glamping’ might even be a stretch — people, this is serious luxury. The newly-built rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, curated rustic-chic decor, heated bathroom floors, and luxe Brook Linen sheets. And a rose gold copper bathtub if you stay in room 309.

    Clearly the owners, one of them a Hoboken resident {Jesse Halliburtons of Prime Real Estate}, did not skimp on design. Record players and classic records perch atop each cabin’s table, ready to be played, with world-renown artists such as The Beatles and The Stones in the collections. But back to the heated floors…OMG. You will leave the bathroom in a blissful state wondering why all floors are not built this way.
    There are currently 12 rooms, but it sounds as if a lot more are to come, as Jesse noted the Hudson Valley area is really seeing a resurgence, with more and more visitors {and long-term residents} as of late.

    In the mornings, Jesse and his team offer complimentary coffee and endless recs for what to do in the area. A morning hike is at the top of the list, as well as a few cute spots for breakfast.

    ^^ We took advantage of the fire pit by making s’mores *obvi*
    Woodstock Way has a newly-constructed fire pit and lounge area near the lobby that overlooks the small waterfall and river running through Woodstock. Roast marshmallows and drinks some vino, then retreat to your Brook Linen sheets for the most restful sleep ever {yes, they actually have soundproof walls and doors — so you’ll barely be able to hear even the waterfall outside}.

    Things to Do in Woodstock

    Food + Drink

    Walk about two minutes from the lobby, and you’ll be on the Main Street of Woodstock. There you’ll find an array of places to peek into, and of course, eat. A few notables:

    SILVIA {42 Mill Hill Road}

    Farm-to-table restaurant, SILVIA is touted as the best new restaurant in the Woodstock area. On the menu, they’ll note that you cannot substitute things, so those with allergies, come prepared. {There’s an array of vegan-friendly items, though.} Grass-fed steak is delicious, as are the array of desserts.

    Cucina {109 Mill Hill Road}

    A dimly-lit Italian-inspired restaurant, Cucina is a must-visit. Nestled in a cozy winter farmhouse, there are a variety of dishes include freshly-made pasta and an array of noteworthy menu items including burrata, octopus, and of course — an extensive wine list.

    Oriole Nine {17 Tinker Street}

    You’ll find yourself ordering off the specials menu at this breakfast and lunch spot and although they’re usually very busy, it seems they always have some room to squeeze in a big party. Opt for the corned beef hash, Reuben, or the French goat cheese omelet if you’re feeling like stepping up your breakfast game.

    Shindig {1 Tinker Street}

    In a nutshell: Comfort food heaven. If you go here for nothing else, order the grilled cheese. Melted with Havarti, cheddar, arugula and apricot preserve —it’s a sweet and savory dish that will have anyone thinking about it for weeks to come. Other notables at Shindig: The sweet potato waffle fries and the hamburger, but again, the grilled cheese is where it’s at. Order with a side of tomato soup and thank us later.

    Mud Club

    Newly-opened Mud Club is a clutch on-the-go breakfast spot for NY {or should we say NJ}-style bagels and coffee. Seriously though, they’re SO yum- crunchy toasted, not too big, not too small. At night, it also doubles as a wine bar. Win/win.

    Glo Spa {62 Ricks Road}

    This mini-retreat within a retreat is a heavenly oasis easy to miss for even a savvy traveler. The spa offers a ton of different services, from oxygen therapy to massage to facials to a sauna and steam room — and also a hair salon within called Le Shag for the finishing blowout touches post-spa glow. If you come here with a group, fear not: They accommodated our party of five with five different treatments simultaneously. PERFECT for a bachelorette party or getaway with friends. ‘Twas so relaxing.

    Nearby

    There are so many other noteworthy places to enjoy in Woodstock. Explore, poke around, shop — anyone who comes here will leave feeling refreshed, relaxed and rejuvenated. Head to a cidery or distillery 30 minutes away, hit up some hiking trails near Mohonk Mountain, take a day trip to New Paltz — the options are endless.
