Take Me Away - Glass Cabins In The Woods


above photo was by my husband when we arrived

It may sound corny to some but we enjoy following the traditional themes for anniversary gifts for marriage. So when we celebrated our "wood" anniversary this past June marking five years of marriage, I was stuck on what to gift my sweet guy who spoils me in every way possible. I truly love giving a gift of an experience and stumbled upon this glass cabin in the woods. I thought this would be the perfect getaway for him to unwind from work and our everyday life in the urban environment we live in. I immediately booked the trip to be enjoyed during the fall and soak up all the autumnal splendor we could. Our little airbnb in upstate, NY {Hillsdale, NY to be exact} did not disappoint. It seemed we hit the best week of the year weather wise as well as for the change of colors on the trees that surrounded us. I however will not lie... the complete darkness and silence of night had this city girl shaking in her boots. I however wouldn't trade anything in the world for the beauty we were surrounded by during the day. Long mornings lounging fireside soaking up the slight chill in the air and the falling leaves all around us...it was heaven!

The home was beautifully decorated with vintage pieces everywhere. The open concept living with all the walls being glass really allowed you to feel like you were living outside in the woods. Everywhere you turned was a stunning view. 



wouldn't an infinity pool on that little open land be perfection for summertime

the home was filled with rustic decor that gave it such a warm lived in feeling



how cute is this gallery wall, I especially love the shadow box filled with collars of beloved pets from  their past, such a sweet keepsake for our furry friends



an adorable barn house that was for sale down the street


we explored some of the farm fields near our house, can you spot us?


Since the house was about twenty five minutes from Hudson, NY we dined there every night. While it's known for it's excellent antiquing and home decor shops {we loved Hudson Home, Lili and Loo, Regan & Smith, 3 Forty Seven & Hudson Supermarket}. There also is a major food scene happening there that is worth visiting. We loved every single meal we had. 



Grazin Diner, our favorite meal of the trip was one of the best burgers we have ever had and it has a really awesome sustainable farming ethics as well as sources everything locally. 




Swoon Kitchen Bar was our last meal and it didn't disappoint. We indulged in homemade pappardelle with local beef bolognese, fried artichokes and a crispy kale salad. We left very happy to say the least!


Hudson Food Studio was our first meal in this historic little town and the asian fusion food was incredible. We loved the ramen and the curry. 


casual Mexican food at Mexican Radio for one night, we loved the chili and the spicy shredded chicken tacos


WM Farmer & Sons was by far the coolest restaurant we dined at. The ambience was fun and the food was stellar. Try the country ham board with homemade biscuits & pickles. It's divine.
