Located in the Catskill Mountains just 2-3 hours north of New York City, Eastwind Hotel & Bar is a year-round boutique hotel complex inspired by nature and driven by Scandinavian aesthetics. Located in the quaint town of Windham, the sprawling getaway features cabins and mini A-frames by Slovenian eco-tourism focused manufacturer Lushna, as well as midcentury-inspired hotel guest rooms, a barrel sauna, bar, lounge, and a smattering of outdoor fire pits. In other words, it's an outdoor enthusiast's ideal retreat.
Opened in 2018, the Windham location's success led to the opening of two more glamping properties: Eastwind Lake Placidin New York's Adirondacks, and their most recent property, Eastwind Oliverea Valley, located in the Catskill Mountains outside of Phoenicia. While a midcentury-meets-cabincore aesthetic runs throughout all three properties, they differ slightly in their accommodations. Most notably, Oliverea Valley is the company's first ground-up build, while Eastwind Windham and Lake Placid feature a renovated hotel and motor lodge, respectively.
Besides the locations' hotel rooms, a number of Lushna cabin suites dot each property. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from the 190-square-foot Lushna Petite, a space just big enough for its plush king bed, to a 220-square-foot A-frame Lushna with a private bathroom, to the 400-square-foot Lushna Suite, a luxury cabin with a loft bed, writer's nook, and kitchenette.
Each Lushna is finished in a natural wood grain with picture windows offering mountain views from within upstate New York's most famous regions. Natural-inspired frette linens, wool blankets, and decor tie each cabin together.
Other amenities throughout the three properties include saunas, pools, complimentary bike rental, a vintage library at the Lake Placid location, and Oliverea Valley's Dandelion restaurant by chef Daniel Cipriani of renowned Brooklyn hot spots. Not to mention s'mores kits and access to that good upstate New York backcountry.
Currently, both Eastwind Windham and Lake Placid are open for bookings with prices ranging from $249/night for a Writer's Studio room to $479/night for a King Suite. The recently opened Eastwind Oliverea Valley is now taking bookings for early 2023.
