You Wood

New Yorkers enjoy the solitude of an upstate getaway, but in the evening’s silence can find themselves perversely missing the warbles of New York’s indigenous species — like the livery cabus towncarius, and its telltale mating call, “Arecibo, Arecibo.”

Get the solitude you seek, but with the lifestyle you depend on, at the William Brown Cabin.

Just-now-opened two hours north of the city, the William Brown Cabin is an incredibly stylish “Jappo/Scando American Hunting” lodge designed by a Wallpaper photographer slash GQ contributor slash men’s lifestyle blogger.

Nestled on 130 acres of verdant countryside complete with hiking trails and a spring-fed swimming hole, the one-bed cabin boasts a Japanese soaking tub, french press locally-roasted coffee, a porch fireplace, and available in-cabin dining from a local farm-to-table caterer.

What there’s not — no TV, no Wi-Fi, no cell service and, for ten miles, no artificial light to sully the night sky.

For recreation, hit nearby Callicoon’s antique shops and cheese/winemakers, or just relax on the porch with a drink from the provided whiskey flask, sourced from the proprietor’s own personal stash.

Sure beats raiding the mini-bar.
