This two-story cottage might be only a two-hour drive from Manhattan, but it's worlds away from the bustle of city life. For about $200 per night, guests can stay in the two-bedroom rental that began life as a Quonset hut in the 1980s before an extensive renovation added taller ceilings and alcove windows. Now, the interior is full of amenities that would make grandma proud: hand-made quilts; rocking chairs; and lace curtains create a perfect retreat for "dancing, playing games, yoga, and meditation." Outside, five acres of old-growth Catskill forest beckons, and the rental also comes with a screened-in gazebo, rain garden, gas grill, and fire pit. Just don't forget your bird-watching binoculars and fresh-baked pastries.
