This Charming Inn Is One of the Coziest Bed-and-breakfasts in New York’s Catskills, and It Just Added New Vacation Rentals

The minute I unlocked to New York’s Shandaken Inn almost four years earlier, I felt like I entered the really definition of hygge. As one of its first visitors back in February 2020, the 15-room bed-and-breakfast in the Catskill Mountains drew me in, reassuring me with its luxe-meets-rustic design, accompanied by the most simple yet doting service. Case in point: After a night of roasting marshmallows in the outside fire pit and playing games by the fireplace in the comfortable lounge, I awakened the next morning to discover that the innkeeper had actually left me a hand-drawn map path because I had actually told him I wanted to go for a run.
Now the upstate New York getaway, about a 2.5-hour drive northwest of New York City, has actually expanded its offerings with 3 brand-new personal homes, which simply debuted recently. Each provides more than 1,300 square feet of area with 2 bed rooms equipped with king-size beds, appropriate for four guests (or six for an additional charge), in addition to full-equipped kitchen spaces; in-unit washers and clothes dryers; and living rooms with gas fireplaces and televisions. The bathrooms are geared up with rains showers, Portico ceramic tiles, Blackman components, and Malin + Goetz facilities.
