Looking for a luxurious and restorative escape? Who isn’t? Just a two-hour drive from New York City, this estate isn’t Baby from “Dirty Dancing”‘s Catskills. Situated in the Beaverkill Valley, High Meadow Farm rests on over 61 acres of forest, trails, ponds, and boasts a private waterfall. But with all the modern amenities and sophisticated design, you certainly won’t be roughing it—not even close.

The custom cabin was built to blend harmoniously with the natural surroundings. Crisp interiors feature an effective combination of warm and dark woods and sturdy exposed metal stairways, perfect to lead you to one of the home’s five bedrooms, two gathering areas, and 3.5 baths. 

Peer out the living room’s wall of windows to the wildlife beyond. The home’s un-gated community prioritizes conservation, so your stake in the land protects the flora, fauna, fawns, etc. Sit back in front of the crackling fire and toast to yourself with that cup of cocoa. You’ve earned it!

An eat-in dining space is tucked next to the massive kitchen, ideal for entertaining guests on long weekends during any season. State of the art appliances, including a double refrigerator and professional stove, simplify your role as the perfect host.

Let’s talk about these bedrooms: Predictably, they’re all remarkably spacious (perfect for perfecting your dance routine). And with unique and indulgent features in each room, I’m not even sure which one I’d choose for my own slumber. Access to outdoor balconies, built-in shelves, a stone fireplace… can I try them all?!

And, of course, there are cathedral ceilings high enough for you and that dashing, misunderstood dance instructor from the neighboring resort to perfect “that” lift.

I know you’re staring at the standalone tub, so I’ll also mention the floating vanity, glass shower, and serene views to enjoy as you soak. Dry off and join your guests in the second gathering room with an adjoining wine cellar. Grab some blankets, kick off your shoes (though I do hope you did this after you returned from your morel-picking excursion), and grab a bottle or two. It’s vacation year-round here!

Sure, there’s an office space if you feel like working. I encourage you, at the very least, to take your laptop to the deck. But I get it. At $1,850,000, you’ve got to do something to finance this home. (It’s pricey, but also fully-furnished! How luxurious!) While you’ve got your e-mail open, promise to forward me an invitation for a weekend visit, okay? I’ll bring the s’mores.
