Whether trying to nail down Valentine’s Day plans with your sweetie, or just looking for an excuse to escape to a cozy stay complete with a fireplace and ski slopes, Eastwind Hotel & Bar has you covered.

 

Couples, friends and families can retreat to Windham, New York, and book a luxurious, yet cozy suite (with an all-important fireplace) at Eastwind Hotel & Bar for all the warm, homey or romantic chalet vibes you’re looking for.

 

The Two King Suite, one of Eastwind’s 26 accommodations, offers 600 square feet of pet-friendly space. Located within the property’s Bunk House, the suite offers two king-sized beds, sleeping up to four guests — perfect for a couple, family or friends. Spread out in two seating areas and get cozy by the private fireplace with Faribault wool blankets.

If something along the lines of glamping is more your speed, Lushna Suites offer a standalone option, including space for up to four with a lofted, queen-sized bed and full-sized pullout couch. Enjoy views of the Catskill Mountains and surrounding meadows from the comfort of your bed, or bring the kids along, unfold the couch and enjoy a makeshift “camping” experience. Stay warm by the individual fire pit — s’mores and BBQ kits are available upon request.

No matter which suite you choose, Eastwind guests all enjoy easy access to Windham Mountain, five minutes from the hotel. The only issue? Good luck choosing from the mountain’s nearly 300 skiable acres, 54 trails spread over two peaks, six terrain parks and 11 lifts.

A Day at Nickelodeon Universe

If your family travel brings you to the greater New York City region, opt for a taste of nostalgia (or the grown-ups and fun and imagination for the kids at American Dream’s Nickelodeon Universe. Since I don’t have children, I recruited my best friend and her 6-year-old twins, Declan and Delaney, to help me check out the Nickelodeon-themed theme park and all the ways it brings to life favorite characters from cartoons both past and present, like Rugrats!, which I watched as a child, and Spongebob Square Pants, which is more Declan’s speed.

5 Family Volcano Adventures on Lanzarote

The island of Lanzarote, in Spain’s Canary Islands, endured a series of devastating volcanic eruptions in the mid-1700s.
