Driving Vacations In New York State

The Hamptons, Hudson Valley and the Adirondack Mountains all make for easy drives from New York City and are home to singular retreats for travelers looking for an escape from the city.

For an Adults-Only Weekend in the Country: Glenmere Mansion, Hudson Valley

Glenmere Mansion’s Lower Hudson Valley location encompasses 150 acres of manicured gardens, two Har-Tru tennis courts, a championship croquet court and a pool. This palazzo-style adults-only resort also has a gorgeous spa and emphasizes fine dining, so chances are you’ll be spending most of your time indulging in on-property experiences.

For a Destination Spa Near NYC: Shou Sugi Ban House, Water Mill

For travelers interested in a wellness getaway, the 13-room Shou Sugi Ban House offers programmed wellness trips along with daycations. The Japanese-inspired destination spa is a zen retreat with a ryokan-esque sense of place. Mads Refslund, co-founder of Copenhagen’s Noma, is behind the spa’s popular culinary program.

For an Authentic, Camp-Style Escape: The Point, Saranac Lake

On a 75-acre peninsula on Upper Saranac Lake, The Point is at once a luxurious 11-room sanctuary and a playground for outdoor enthusiasts. Guests stay in the property’s original log cabins (which once hosted the Rockefellers) with rustic-chic décor. Days are spent hiking, playing croquet or boating on the lake, followed by dinner in the elegant main dining room, which hosts black-tie dinners on Wednesdays and Fridays.

For a Private Multi-Generational Vacation: Lake Kora Resort, Raquette Lake

Lake Kora Resort—built by a New York lieutenant governor in the 1800s—is now a takeover-only resort, making it the ultimate private summer camp. The resort harmoniously blends historic design elements like timber walls and stone fireplaces with contemporary amenities. It is an outdoorsman’s dream, serving up remote camping, boating and hiking.

For a Relaxed Beach Vacation: Hero Beach Club or Gurney’s, Montauk
