Soaking in the tub at Urban Cowboy Catskills in winter in Big Indian New York

Located in Big Indian, near Phoenecia, this is one of the best picks for where to stay in the Catskills if you’re looking for a the perfect R&R on your Catskills getaway. This Bavarian Alpine Lodge was owned by the same German-American family for 70 years before they sold it to the current owners, a couple of creatives who started their first property in their Brooklyn apartment and after the popularity of their Nashville location.

This wilderness lodge experience is one of the most unique Catskills attractions and experiences there is. Each room has something special to offer and is individually designed and is what aesthetic dreams are made of not to mention the clawfoot bathtubs next to a fireplace next to the giant windows overlooking the snowy mountains.

Urban Cowboy Catskills is a place to unplug and unwind, rooms have no televisions, instead, bring a little speaker, turn on some tunes and soak in the tub with the view or play one of the board games they lend out, or in the winter you can borrow their sleds, and snowshoes for some outdoor fun, and unwind with great cocktails and delicious food! 10/10 recommend and we will be hoping to visit again.

One of the best picks for where to stay in the Catskills as far as resorts go if you want something incredibly unique is staying at the famous Roxbury Motel or The Roxbury at Stratton Falls, two theme properties where each room is an experience of its own!

The Roxbury Hotel is every movie lover’s dream or anyone looking for something not so cookie cutter and wildly fun and eccentric. There are two properties that makeup the Roxbury Experience, the Roxbury Motel and The Roxbury at Stratton Falls. The two properties are located one town apart from each other, about 2 miles or a 3-minute drive.

The most famous property are the unique rooms at the Roxbury Motel. If you love Gilligan’s Island, you will love the room named “Maryann’s Coconut Cream Pie”. This room features a ceiling designed to look like whipped cream. It also has some pie crust crown molding and a pretty pie circular bed.

Love the Wizard of Oz? There’s a room at the Roxbury for you complete with a yellow brick roadbed and a wall size painting of the Emerald City.

At the Roxbury at Stratton Falls, you can choose between the quirky Tower Cottages and gorgeously themed Mansion Rooms plus enjoy the glistening cascades at Stratton Falls.

This hotel offers easy access to Catskills Park along with the forest preserve, exhilarating hiking trails, a spa at both locations, and a pool at the Stratton Falls location.
