THE HUBERT HOUSE || An Escape From Ordinary

Many visitors to New York City want to see the bustling scenes of the city, and The Hubert House is a hidden gem where one can leave their stressful city lives behind. With various nearby activities to choose from and also on site amenities to ensure a relaxing stay, it's a great weekend getaway for you and a few friends. Equipped with 4 bedrooms, there is plenty of room to accommodate a family outing as well.

Start your morning with a book in the hammock, bask in the afternoon sun in the pool, prep a healthy salad lunch for the crew in the spacious kitchen, relax the tension in your body with a soak in the hot tub (and perhaps a glass of champagne), and cozy up next to the outdoor fire pit in the evening. It already sounds like a promising vacation right?

While a key selling point of The Hubert House is its secluded 20-acre oasis, many sights and getaways are within a short drive's distance, such as Bethel Woods, the iconic location of the Woodstock Music Festival, which is only a 7 minute drive away.

A casual eatery nearby, The Arnold House, comes highly recommended by the owners of The Hubert House. With windows stretching from floor to ceiling, the dining area is warmed by natural light.
