The Urban Cowboy hospitality brand is no stranger to making city-adjacent stays feel a little more country. The newest addition to the roster, The Chalet, goes a rustic-chic step further at The Urban Cowboy property in the Catskills, New York.


The new mountain escape, nestled on some 68 acres of Big Indian Wilderness within 700,000 acres of Catskills Park, debuted in March 2020, and is ready to truly wow guests with its high-style designs and luxury accommodations deep in the woods.

Enjoy a romantic weekend away in the woods at any of Urban Cowboy’s suites or go all out with The Chalet, a standalone escape. The Urban Cowboy Lodge is the ultimate getaway and crowd-pleaser for rustic, nature-loving vibes mixed with high-end luxury and unquestionable style.

Step into The Chalet and feel transported into a cozy escape, complete with a fireplace, full kitchen, custom hand-printed wallpaper encasing the room and plush, luxury trimmings. Make space for more guests and utilize the optional second bedroom, or spread out and enjoy the time away in a cabin you can call home, starting at $199 a night.

In addition to the cabin’s insanely chic layout (we cannot stress this aspect enough), the location is everything for outdoor adventurers. A five-minute drive from Belleayre Mountain, guests of the lodge can enjoy exclusive access to the ski slopes nearly anytime they wish. Check out the mountain’s 171 skiable acres, 50 trails, two parks and eight lifts, covering a variety of expertise levels and experiences.

The Dandelion Pub: Cozy Family Dining in Philadelphia

With indoor dining finally (mostly) reopened in Philadelphia, my mom, sister and I were able to enjoy a day roaming around the city, eager for a warm place to enjoy a late lunch after a cold day out and about. For anyone who recently enjoyed the creativity and ingenuity of the city’s outdoor winter dining, an indoor space with heat, cozy furniture and rich wood walls is a much-appreciated semblance of normalcy.
