The Barn at Nutten Hook | Stuyvesant, NY

Just 15 minutes north of Hudson, this barn overlooks 15 acres of land and the Hudson River. In the warmer months, guests can enjoy its 70-foot-long salt water lap pool, a tree house for kids, and a greenhouse in a beautiful walled garden as well as canoeing. In the cooler months, guests can enjoy their time inside the 4,500-square-foot late Dutch barn built in 1883 for the Scott Ice Company on the Hudson River to service the work horses that pulled ice cakes off the river in winter. The last time it was used as a farm was the early 2000s as the Weid Dairy farm. Now it has 12x40 hemlock beams with soaring 27-foot ceilings that gives views to the most sensational sunsets, the hosts say. It can accommodate up to 10 guests across five bedrooms.

Cristman Barn | Ilion, NY

This late 19th-century barn is a whopping 10,000 square feet on a sprawling 35 acre-property with three spring-fed ponds. Able to sleep up to 16 guests, the barn was purchased in 1991 by a family who had planned to turn it into a bed and breakfast. The family fell in love with it and decided to live there until a new owner finally put it to the use it was re-designed for. Despite its renovation, the barn is full of 120-year-old beams, reclaimed siding for walls, stones from age-old outdoor walls to make the foundation walls that come together to create a unique, cozy, and rustic feel. Note from the hosts: There are geese on the property, so the lawn does have goose poop. That's barn livin', folks.

$551 a night.

Don't worry, there's a brand-new heating system in the barn, so keeping warm won't be an issue.

Milk Barn | Hankins, NY

Set on 15 private acres in the heart of the Catskills and Delaware River Valley, this converted dairy barn dates back to 1873. Its European influence is obvious with its giant, tiled soaking tub in the basement, intricately etched window-doors between rooms, beautifully tiled marble floors or the nude bas relief in the master bath. In the entrance, stained glass pocket doors open to the modern chef’s kitchen. A more modern touch—a vintage sound system is complemented by a perfect vinyl selection—is available to use as are acoustic guitars and a drum kit. A full wall television projector allows for cozy movie nights, too. The barn can accommodate up to seven people across three bedrooms.

$550 a night; three-night minimum

Six unique Airbnbs you can rent in NYC

Travel

After being cooped up in our apartments for almost four months, New Yorkers are craving a change of scenery. And while we can't really travel that many places right now (since the EU has banned us), we're looking closer to home for possible getaways. 

Airbnb is one option people are using to get out of their respective Groundhog Day-like situations. Staying in a new neighborhood can help cure that wanderlust for a bit and make you feel like a tourist in your own city.

RECOMMENDED: The best Airbnb New York City rentals  

And while it's best to stay at home right now, Airbnb does has an optional protocol, including a 40-page manual on proper cleaning practices, that suggests keeping at least 24 hours between rentals, among other things. So if you're going to rent an Airbnb, make sure to find out how the host is sanitizing the space and if masks are required.

We also highly recommend booking an entire place, not a room, as the former will demand less human interaction. And bring your own cleaning supplies to do a quick clean after check in.

All that being said, there are some incredible lodging options across the city worth checking into, from a houseboat stay to one with full skyline views and a private, outdoor cinema experience. Below are some of our favorites.
