Gardiner Barn Holiday Rental, $173/night
It might be torturous to rent this place in winter when it looks out on a pool and tennis courts (unless you’re planning to join the Polar Bear Club on New Year’s Eve). Butwith those mountain views and that nice kitchen, might be worth it. You don’t actually rent the entire 173-foot-long barn, but rather a two-bedroom apartment within the barn. It’s in Gardiner, near New Paltz. We haven’t made it to Gardiner but have heard good things about it from someone who has a second home there. You can also hire a “natural, gourmet cook” to bring your relaxation to the next level.
