Looking for a drivable getaway that will leave you feeling refreshed and reenergized? The Roxbury is a dreamlike destination.

Tucked away in New York’s Catskill Mountains, The Roxbury Experience is a unique mid-19th-century mansion that takes theming to the next level, whether it’s the whimsical Superhero Incognito cottage influenced by the colorful works of American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein or the art deco Lost Horizon cottage, which is like stepping back into glamorous 1930s Hollywood. “Imagine if Alice in Wonderland married Willy Wonka and set up residence in Oz. That’s what we want The Roxbury Experience to be,” their website tells. Combining charming theme rooms with the peaceful mountain setting, this is a getaway like none other that is sure to leave you feeling rejuvenated.

There’s plenty of ways to connect with nature and recharge your social battery in the area as well. Surrounding The Roxbury is an extensive trail system leading to the base of a 50-foot waterfall. If you’re more of a thrill-seeker, a few miles down the road is Plattekill Mountain, a ski and snowtubing destination known for its long and challenging runs. Belleayre Mountain, only a 15-minute drive, boasts the longest skiable trail in the Catskills and is a great place for family lessons. In about 30 minutes, you can be snowboarding and night tubing at Windham Mountain.
