Wintertime in the Hamptons

1/3

While the city’s well-heeled flock to the Hamptons to escape the stifling NYC summer heat, a winter visit is equally enjoyable with a stay at the Baker House 1650 B&B. The building is one of the oldest homes in the United States, dating back to a time when folks spent the majority of time in their homes and, as such, it possesses both old and modern comforts. Big bay windows are elegantly dressed and peek out unto views of the lovely gardens. Hand-hewn historic wood beams provide historic charm.

Light a fire and draw a bath for a long soak before settling into the luxurious Frette linens and down bedding that will keep you cozy even as the wind howls outside. In the morning, request for the organic homemade breakfast to be delivered to your room along with the morning paper for a bit of extra snuggle time in bed.

Relaxing in the heart of TriBeCa

1/3

Let’s face it– wintertime in New York City is only romantic in the movies. Outside, the streets are swimming in slush and the snow is grey before it ever hits the ground. A stay in the city is far less bleak with an indulgent stay at The Greenwich Hotel. This idyllic retreat in the middle of TriBeCa feels more like the home of a collector than a hotel.

Each room is completely different than the last but comprised of treasures brought back from around the world. Specialty beds have been flown in from Sweden and are considered the best in the world– with the curtains drawn to shroud you from daybreak, you could be in for the most restorative sleep of your life.

If you really don’t want to venture outside and risk ruining those covetable leather ankle boots, you’ll also find a Japanese spa onsite that can take up an entire afternoon before you settle back into bed for an early night with the fire crackling.

Warm up with a glass of Kentucky Bourbon

1/3

Located in one of the most beautiful small towns in the country, the historic 19th century Bourbon Manor B&B is a perfect adults-only winter escape. While Kentucky winters are blessedly mild compared to other states, it certainly gets cold enough to merit a few glasses of bourbon from the onsite Bunghole Bourbon Bar & Lounge.

Owners Todd and Tyler brim with warm Southern hospitality and serve up a hearty country breakfast for lucky guests every morning with everything from sticky buns to eggs in a basket satisfying all your warm winter food cravings. Some rooms have working fireplaces while others feature jacuzzi tubs and the elegant antique furnishings create a convivial atmosphere. The place is set up for a decadent winter day inside reading books while lounging in your four-poster bed dressed with a whopping seven layers of 600 thread-count Egyptian Cotton linens.

Winter wonderland in Maine

1/3

As the weather turns Maine white from snow and ice, a suitable stay to enjoy the storybook appeal and quiet stillness of winter in New England can be found at The White Barn Inn. Romantic sleigh beds are topped with fluffy white bedding that invites you to curl up early during the long winter nights with an enthralling book as your companion as the wild weather taps on the window outside.

The styling is a mix of country classic and old-world elegant with deep two-person soaking tubs carved out of Carrara marble. The fresh flowers and fruit brighten up the space, even on the coldest days. Should a white squall keep you away from joining dinner service in the namesake white barn restaurant onsite, room service can deliver straight to your door.

Gilded oceanview comfort in Newport

1/3

A gilded Vanderbilt mansion may feel too opulent to merit being called ‘cozy’ but a stay at The Chanler at Cliff Walk might change your definition of the word. Once you’ve taken in the lavish details, like heated bathroom floors, luxurious bathrobes, and featherbedding, that ‘cozy’ cabin in the woods will feel like miles away from true comfort.

The fabulous staff are always ready to elevate your experience — ask them to draw an aromatherapy bath while you are out on a winter beach walk so you can sink straight in upon your return. On a particularly blustery day, one of their famous hot toddies will warm even the deepest chills. It’s best enjoyed in the privacy of your room with the curtains drawn cozily around the four-poster bed.

A snug abode in the buzzy West Loop district

1/3

Even winter weather in Chicago won’t dampen your traveler spirit with a stay at the Publishing House Bed and Breakfast which is located amid many of the city’s current buzz spots in the West Loop. Once you’re back inside after a frigid day out, there’s plenty to admire: the exposed brick, massive windows, and bold artwork and rugs are the impeccable stylings of owners Shawn and Kimberley who live on site with their two dogs.

This spot garners extra cozy points because the pups welcome cozy cuddle sessions with animal-loving guests. Furthermore, clawfoot tubs, underfloor heating, and a third-floor communal living room with a fireplace and piano make this a lovely spot to get shelter from the cold. Plus, breakfast is included and rotates a series of modern breakfast specials including smashed avocado, some variation of pickled veggies, fresh fruit and wonderful loaves of bread.

Warm your soul with historic detailing in Wisconsin

1/3

A cozy ambiance is one of the fundamentals of a historic bed and breakfast. Welcoming guests to the Queen Anne-style Franklin Victorian B&B are hosts Jennifer and Steve. The property boasts a number of extra cozy factors including woodwork details, stained glass windows, and fresh homemade cookies that never seem to run out. Private bathrooms have jetted whirlpool tubs, body massage spray shower, fireplaces, and fluffy slippers and robes to get you into the lounging spirit.

Some rooms have window seating perfect for a leisurely afternoon reading a book or staring out at the trees. If you’ve forgotten your novel at home, the B&B has a number of great picks to lend or you can grab a coloring book, an activity that has recently come into fashion for adults as a way to de-stress.

Perhaps most appealing of all is how you can start your day at Franklin Victorian B&B.

Warm your heart at a Wisconsin jewel

1/3

Wisconsin winters are as bleak and brutal as they come. Luckily for winter visitors, the Audubon Inn is truly a cozy Midwestern gem of a stay if you should find yourself in this corner when the temperatures are below zero. You’ll be pleased to have an excuse to stay inside and enjoy the property whose design is reminiscent of a Wes Anderson film.

The guest rooms have soaring ceilings and four-poster beds with adorable little step stools to give you a boost up into the luxurious bedding. The snug berth is the perfect place to spend a dreary day. The bathrooms, like all the rooms, vary completely in design but all come with double whirlpool jacuzzi tubs and Aveda bath amenities. There’s also an onsite restaurant whose fabulous reputation has made it a destination in itself; but be forewarned that if you’re looking forward to enjoying their unique take on the flavors of New Orleans, dinner reservations are necessary.

Tiny cabin in the woods with extra amenities in Wyoming

1/3

There’s nothing scary about cabin fever when you’re staying in the rustic-chic, all-cabin Fireside Resort near the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort ski area and Grand Teton National Park. Your wood cabin comes stocked with all the snowed-in necessities like a fireplace, ground coffee in the full kitchens and goose-down pillows and duvets atop the bed. The rustic ambiance is not without its modern creature comforts with TV and WiFi available for movie marathons.

Prefer to surrender to a digital detox? As the area is known to get more than 100 inches of snow every year, seize the opportunity to build snowmen and romp outside. Even during winter, you can light the outdoor fire pit to toast marshmallows or take a soak with your hat and mittens on in the public hot tub.

Cozy down Japanese style in the Sonoma Valley

1/3

Tucked away in a Sonoma Valley hamlet is a surprising hotel which has brought the comforts of a Japanese Ryokan, a traditional Japanese inn, to American wine country. Everything at the Gaige House & Ryokan is infused with the flavor of Japan — they offer sake and matcha cookies by the front desk rather than the requisite chocolate chip variety found elsewhere.

In the suites, delightful cast-iron tea sets await for making tea. Small interior garden atriums have Zen rock gardens. Just like in a traditional Ryokan, the bathrooms have massive and extra deep granite soaking tubs and separate showers for two. There are delightful yukata robes with obi sashes as well as two sets of slippers — geta slippers for outdoors and zori slippers for indoors, Japanese style.

Winter wine season in Napa

1/3

The pace of Napa visitors during wintertime certainly slows, but with winery staff eager to entertain determined visitors, it’s a great time to visit when you’re looking to relax. The weather is milder than other parts of the country and although rain is frequent it turns the landscape a brilliant shade of emerald green. Looking out at the jewel-toned expanse of redwood woodlands and endless miles of vineyards is the Harvest Inn.

Here you won’t mind being stranded inside with a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy in your room and a room service menu to peruse for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The massive wood burning fireplaces emit a generous amount of heat and there’s no sound more relaxing than the crackle of the logs as you sip a local vino. Most rooms have king-size beds with feather bedding and bathrooms feature deep soaker tubs. Should you chose to explore beyond the inn, you’ll be safe from the cold with free car service to wineries within a three-mile radius.

A design-lover’s winter retreat on the Sonoma coastline

1/3

Hanging off a Sonoma bluff with prime views over both the winter surf and the dramatic landscape beloved by famed photographer Ansel Adams, Timber Cove Resort is a homage to all things cozy and chic. The mid-century construction was inspired by the organic architectural style of Frank Lloyd Wright and the local redwoods and stone. It’s a beautifully open, uncluttered space and the perfect spot to enjoy the blustery and foggy Northern California winter. You’ll greet rain like a friend thanks to its relaxing pitter-patter on the skylights of the lofty forest view rooms.

The spotless quarters come equipped with tea kettles and pour over coffee setups for endless cups to enjoy while you spin a curated selection of records on the record player or stretch out on a yoga mat for a few Vinyasa flows. Beds are dressed with plush duvets, wool tartan blankets and in the bathrooms, soaking tubs invite you to spend the afternoon almost afloat.
