Mochi is a undeniably a city dog, but once in a while we love escaping the hustle and bustle of NYC for open spaces and scenic views. It's not always easy to find dog-friendly accommodations, but luckily Glamping with Pets has made it simple to book pet-friendly getaways. Mochi isn't exactly the type of dog who likes to "rough it" in the great outdoors, so "glamping" (glamorous camping) is the perfect solution to going on a little adventure while still having the comforts of home (wifi, wine, and king sized beds - yes, please)!
We recently ventured 2 hours north of NYC to Barn on the Pond - a pet-friendly luxury barn with a 4,200 square foot pond and stunning views of the Catskill Mountains. Located between Saugerties and Woodstock, this glamping spot is quite idyllic. Between exploring the 4 acre property to cooking meals in the gourmet kitchen to cuddling by the fire, Mochi had the best time during our city escape!
It snowed the day before we arrived at Barn on the Pond so Mochi made sure to bundle up and wear snow booties to protect her paws. Even though it was cold outside, Mochi had a blast running around the property and exploring the area.
In addition to the king-size master bedroom and several other bedrooms / sleeping areas in the main barn, there is also an airstream camper on site to sleep additional guests. We were lucky to have the property to ourselves for a few days, but it would be also great place to stay if you had a big group of friends or family - and dogs, obviously!
Since we live in NYC and are used to having a relatively small city apartment, it was amazing to have to much open space while we were glamping. To keep things cozy, the barn features both indoor and outdoor fireplaces as well as a big fire pit in the backyard.
We had so much fun at this glamping site that we didn't want to leave! We'd love to visit again - perhaps in the spring or fall when the weather is warmer and we can explore the area a bit more. If you're looking for a luxury pet-friendly getaway in the Hudson Valley area, we'd definitely recommend you check out Barn on the Pond!
