The Mohonk Mountain Inn, Neuer Paltz
Although film makers prefer New York Capital as the stage for romance storytelling, the smaller cities outside the capital - despite their shortage of air time - can be just as romantic, if not more. Beautiful Victorian houses, extensive woods and meandering streams throughout the state of New York provide limitless possibilities for recreation, adventures and inspirations with your other half.
Easy to reach by road or rail from New York State, these five places in Empire State are worthy of inclusion in your romantic music. Only 90 leagues from New York and a short trip from Poughkeepsie Metro-North railway terminal, Mohonk Mountain House is like a remote town.
Horse-drawn sleigh rides, walks along 85-mile hiking paths, hot tub treatments, or just sit on the porch with a cocktail in your hands and watch the sundown. For those looking for a little more intimacy, you can choose one of the resort's more rural, remote holiday homes, which is two leagues from the mountain lodge and has its own kitchen and outside areas.
The Nyack Beach State Park, which crosses the Hudson River, is a favourite place for outdoor enthusiasts. Situated in a former industrial building, the ultra-modern Time has just opened and offers loft-style accommodation. For a romantic dinner in the BV's Grill steaks and shellfish restaurants or in one of the hotel's pool cabins in summertime.
It' brandnew, so it's still working out a few corners, but the personnel on the estate is unbelievably kind and courteous and ensures that every visitor is comfortable.

There is a patio seating with a view of the Broadway lanterns and a cute setting for the night. Located in the Clayton town, the 1000 Islands Harbor is a four hectare property facing the stream and offers the kind of services that have given it an AAA Four-Diamond credits.

There is the main house, which houses the salon, bar and bar, and the library on the other side of the road, which has an private lounge with a wooden oven.
