Hudson Valley, New York
Wildflower Farms, Auberge Resorts Collection
What it is
An idyllic new 140-acre retreat of 65 stylish cabins and 5 suites, plus three fiercely locavore restaurants and a wellness-oriented pool and spa.
What it isn't
Your granddad’s farm. Exquisite on-site activities range from whipping up your own Instagrammable floral focaccia to hiking their three miles of trails.
What we think
If a young Martha Stewart were reincarnated as a Hudson Valley getaway, she would look something like this: an aesthetically perfect retreat that pulls out all the stops to pamper its guests. Every single room offering is worthy of a magazine spread, with their ornate bed quilts, terrace set over the rushing Shawangunk River, and bewitching tree views out every expansive window. Cabins start at a roomy 475 square feet; if you’re bringing the family or old friends, book a 2-Bedroom Meadow Cottage for a 1,500 square foot floor plan complete with its own private garden, two terraces, and spa–like bathrooms with free-range sun through the skylights, radiant heat flooring and deep soaking tubs.
You're here because
The primary restaurant, Clay, is the type of place New York City’s best chefs can only dream about—with produce pulled from the on-site gardens and dishes like black Angus tartare with shiso and burnt sourdough.
After your morning trudge through dewy fields and a quick dip in the pool, you’re ready for your spa treatment: a 90-minute botanical massage with poultices filled with herbs lovingly and ethically plucked from the region’s fields. Bliss.
Restaurants & Bars
Clay - Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the rustic new American menu pairs seasonal vegetables grown from local farms and onsite in clay rich soils, with well-sourced animal proteins for a dining experience that celebrates the region’s bounty.
The Great Porch - Mornings begin with relaxed coffee and pastries, the afternoon brings light, shareable bites before evolving into a destination for pre-dinner cocktails. Satisfying bar snacks accompany the evening drinks, which call for gathering around the fire with friends after a leisurely dinner.
Dew Bar - Offered at our outdoor pool from May until September, Dew Bar serves refreshing cocktails to complement the small bites and lunch throughout warm afternoons.
Less than two hours drive north of Midtown Manhattan, just down the road from the misty waterfalls at Minnewaska State Park Preserve.
