- Fireplaces: add a touch of romance to each spacious suite, and there's a fully equipped kitchen and a comfy living room with a pull-out couch
- Ski-lodge ambiance: There's a rustic feel to the accommodations, with the knotted-pine paneling, wood furniture, and rustic decor
Windham, New York: Catskill Mountains Town near Skiing and Wineries
The town of Windham is tiny, but it's at least big enough to have two nicknames: "Gem of the Catskills" and "Land in the Sky." That might tell you a bit what Windham is like—it's set down in stunningly pretty country, amid the rolling Catskill Mountains, with forests and vistas everywhere. Windham boasts its own ski resort, [Windham Mountain](http://www.windhammountain.com/, which features 52 trails and 279 acres, along with five terrain parks and 12 lifts. It's the town's star attraction, pulling in skiers and snowboarders each season from New York City and beyond.
In Windham, you'll also be close to the Shawangunk Hudson Valley Wine Trail, a winding road that links 14 wineries offering year-round tours and tastings. It's worth it to take the family for a trip to nearby Cooperstown, home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, especially if you're related to any baseball nerds.
