There comes a time every year when the weekend getaway shifts in overall theme.

Becomes less about enjoying the great outdoors and more about enjoying a view of the great outdoors.

From in front of a roaring fire. Hot toddy firmly in hand.

We’ve got just the venue: The Arnold House, now taking reservations for your next Catskills retreat.

Borscht Belt tavern this is not.

Recently revamped, Arnold House is a century-old lodging house where kicking back in a chunky sweater and woolly socks just seems fitting. Here, have a look.

Cozy digs filled with countrified bric-a-brac, a massive glass-walled great room from which to enjoy views of the wooded surroundings, and a piney in-house tavern for shooting pool, sipping cocktails and singing along to the Allmans on the jukebox.

Also: an on-site spa offering massage and acupuncture, as well as private yoga sessions — if that’s your thing.

Plus Arnold House hosts a variety of themed weekend stays with cooking classes, live music or even a big Thanksgiving dinner for those looking to eschew family craziness for something more laid-back.

And yes, the Tavern has football on the telly.

Only nine rooms here. Better get to it.

Great time of year if ever there was one.
