Eastwind Hotel & Bar is a peaceful Catskill escape. Nestled in the northern range of the Catskill Mountains, this boutique hotel is a year round glamping getaway that eases you into unwinding. Founded in 2018, this retreat was built to foster a distinctive Scandinavian experience–a unique home away from home. With a variety of options including 2-person A-Frame cabins, larger suites, and studios, Eastwind offers the notion of camping without sacrificing comforts. From vacationing families to skiing couples or solo hikers, this is the perfect place to call your basecamp.

Upstater enjoyed a short stay in late June and got to sample just a few of the rustic amenities.
When staying in the Lushna A-Frame cabins, the sauna is just a walk (or bike ride) down a wildflower-strewn path. A sunset sauna is the perfect way to unwind at the end of the work week and get into staycation mode.
Only a balmy 140-degree sauna session could make us take off the complementary Pendleton robes.
“We wanted to create a cozy space where you can curl up after a day of hiking or skiing, and just relax.”
—Bjorn Boyer, Eastwind Co-Founder
After you work up an appetite wandering through the bucolic fields and across the wetlands, Eastwind boasts rustically charming food and drinks to restore your energy.
In the Main Hotel you’ll find a full bar, supper tables, and a roaring fireplace where you can enjoy carefully crafted cocktails and light snacks. Though if you can’t bear to leave your cabin, a tasty breakfast basket can be delivered to your door.
You can almost taste the chocolate croissants, fresh orange juice, and strawberries-in-yogurt.
Do you dream of dawn showers under the skylight? Because you will. Each Lushna Cabin includes a decadent private bathroom complete with Zenology bath products for another touch of comfort from the Netherlands.
Eastwind uses the tagline “So Much To Do, So Much Time”. This space really encourages a slower pace of life where one can take in each scent, taste, sound, and (breathtaking) view on site. With BBQ Kits, hammocks peppering the hillside, campfire pits, and additional weekly events like yoga and live music, there is no shortage of experiences but no rush to take it all in.
