It’s pretty incredible how a two night escape from the city can do wonders for the soul. In dire need of a recharge, the three of us escaped Brooklyn for a few nights and headed to one of my favorite drives outside the city, Woodstock, NY.

We rented the most charming airbnb, where Nate happily ran around without us chasing after him. We ate fresh apple cider donuts, got to see the vibrant changing leaves and actually returned feeling recharged. Going to sleep at 10PM (versus midnight) really does make a difference. We vowed to make this a tradition and eventually, make it a goal to own a little home near there. I love living in the city, but escaping to the country is almost necessary!

Where We Stayed: We rented this cottage and it was perfect for our family of 3. Quaint, incredibly charming, beautifully decorated (a perfect mix of old and new) and 5 minutes from town. The best part is that the home is set on sprawling property that faces a stream and waterfall. So peaceful and relaxing! For Nate, we took a pack n’ play (with a mattress addition) and he slept in one room and we slept in the other.

We ate most of our meals in town and our favorite restaurants were Oriole 9 for breakfast and lunch (ate there twice), Garden Cafe which is Vegan, but so good, you don’t even notice (Keith is a steak guy and admitted how good it was)! We also ate at Red Onion for dinner and it was a drop fancier with a toddler, but perfectly fine if you go nice and early. So many great restaurants!
