Four offbeat getaways

Spend the night in a lighthouse, travel back in time in a vintage trailer, hit the hay at a farm or sleep in a tree.

Kate's Lazy Meadow; Mt. Tremper, NY
Travel time: About two hours from NYC by car
Owned and operated by Kate Pierson of the B-52s and her life partner of eight years (Monica Coleman), this nine-acre property brings comfort, and a bit of kitsch, to the countryside. In addition to its retro-styled cabin suites, a cabin and lodge, there are two quirkier options for your stay: classic Airstream trailers and a cozy wooden shack. Every creekside trailer has a legit bed, bathroom and kitchenette, plus a picnic table, charcoal grill for cooking and a TV/DVD player. With no internet or TV connectivity, the brook-adjacent shack offers a more off-the-grid experience. Cell reception is dicey here, so you won't be tempted to check work e-mails—instead, enjoy the solitude by practicing your fly fishing at Esopus Creek or sketching the bucolic surroundings. 845-688-7200, Trailers $175--$200 per night; suites $175--$300 per night; shack, cabin and lodge $300–$550 per night.
