1. The heart of Phoenicia in Phoenicia, NY
Distance from NYC: 2.5 hours
Where to ski: Belleayre and Hunter Mountains
Get the best of both worlds at this charming and stylish home. Not only will you be staying close to fantastic eateries (including the Phoenicia Diner and Woodstock Brewery), but you're a mere 15 minutes from the breathtaking Belleayre and Hunter Mountains, where ski season is incredibly goof. The host, Jay, has taken care to help guests feel right at home, with a healthy collection of vinyl to play on a vintage stereo, a smart TV, and a large campfire in the backyard. What else do you need? Snow, but you'll get that for sure. Remarkable scenes so close to Manhattan, don't you think?
