Pulse: How We Spend: Weekend Getaway: Rekindle in NY

This lower Hudson Valley hotel is close, and offers low-key charming accommodations

Why: The lower Hudson Valley is close, low-key and charming. The new Glenmere Mansion hotel is the definition of fuss-free opulence.
Rooms: Each of the 19 boudoirs in this restored 1911 Italianate mansion is singular, with dream-inducing bedding, original art, fireplaces, lake views and marble baths. From $550 per night.
Dining: The cozy Frog’s End Tavern has fig-and-blue-cheese pizzas and brownie sundaes; the Supper Room’s upscale menu has filet and pork.
Activities: Hike, canoe, and play golf, tennis, bocce and croquet. Get a cooking lesson from the chef. Go antiquing in Nyack. Shop the high-end outlets at Woodbury Commons. Or just hibernate.
Travel time: 2.5 hours from Center City by car. Glenmeremansion.com
