Do you miss the gold ol’ days, where “vacation” wasn’t a concept that instilled anxiety about trying to keep up with your social network on who travels to the most exotic location ever? We do too. It’s just too much pressure! Whether you are traveling 50 miles or 4000, we all want to experience the same thing – disconnect from the stresses of daily life and have some genuine fun. This is what the Hotel Dylan is all about.
Located in Woodstock, NY, less than two hours away from New York City, this retreat is about simple, authentic fun. Inspired by Woodstock’s history and natural surroundings, the Hotel Dylan offers ping pong, beautiful trails to explore, a fire-pit, and live music. And don’t worry, if you’re a foodie, your high standards will be met by the hotel’s trendy gastropub. Basically, you’ll enjoy fresh ingredients alongside an amazing New England micro-brew while listening to one of many weekly unplugged performances. Sounds pretty amazing to us.
But, we’ve been skipping over the best part about the Hotel Dylan – its psychedelic design, put together by Bob & Cortney Novogratz. Inspired by Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, Bob & Cortney merged vintage camping style with a 1960s rock-n’-roll punch. Bright white rooms are filled with bold patterns, artwork inspired by that iconic summer of ’69, and a hint of humor that only the Novogratz can pull off. It goes without saying that if you’re feeling the need for a design pick-me-up, Hotel Dylan will be a welcomed retreat – a place where you can enjoy a good night’s rest while also envisioning yourself as Wes Anderson’s latest muse. And since it’s all within a couple of hours of NYC, you can tell your friends that your next getaway won’t involve jet-lag.
