New York Times–Featured Catskill Cabin
Location: Catskill, New York
Rate: $175 per night

When both homeowners work in the arts (one's a historian, the other's a director), you're sure to be in for an interior-design treat. The 1930s cabin has been modernized to keep up with the times, but it still maintains some of its original charm (just check out those wood floors). You can go skiing or antiquing, but we recommend cooking a feast: That country-style kitchen is calling your name.
