The 10 Best Destinations for  a Winter Workcation

Narrowsburg, New York

The Catskills are an easy and accessible destination for anyone coming by way of NYC who wants to go somewhere but doesn’t necessarily want to travel. Where to stay: With a recently installed WFH office nook in the master bedroom, the Stardust Cottage would be an idyllic spot to take your Zoom calls and ride out the cold. Amenities include laundry, wifi and a full kitchen. Typically $158/night, you can save 20% at booking on any stay in excess of 7 days.

Best for a Cozy, Winter-y Winter

Los Lunas, New Mexico

Los Lunas, New Mexico is located 20 miles south of Albuquerque — around a 30-minute drive — along the banks of the Rio Grande and just off historic Route 66.  Where to stay: The Lux Mini Farm House is only a 20-minute drive from the Albuquerque International Sunport and — quite literally — on a farm. There’s an onsite restaurant (where they serve fare from said farm) and a Euro-inspired coffee house, which means you never have to leave the premises.

Best for Year-Round Outdoorspeople

Breckenridge, Colorado

If you’re interested in heading to Colorado for a long period of time in the dead of winter, we have to assume it’s probably to ski or snowboard. In Breckenridge, you’re looking at temperatures in the low 30s until April, with frequent snowfalls to match. Where to stay: For $376/night, you can wake up to these stunning views in your own private condo, located right at the base of Peak 9. You can ski in and out, as well as enjoy the outdoor hot tub after a long day on the slopes — or work, rather.

Best for Aspiring Ski Bums

San Juan, Puerto Rico

If the beach falls at the top of your remote stay list of criteria, San Juan, Puerto Rico, could be an optimal location for you to hunker down. Round trip flights to PR are extremely inexpensive out of most major cities, and the San Juan airport is a quick Uber from just about anywhere you’d need to go within the city once you get there. Where to stay: About a 10-minute drive from the San Juan airport, stay at your very own private retreat, just a short walking distance from the beach.

Best for the Work-Hours Beachgoer

Newport, Oregon

At the (metaphorical) intersection of New England and the West Coast, you’ll find Newport, Oregon, a quiet city on the Beaver State’s central coast. Check out Nye Beach or Beverly Beach State Park (the latter of which is a likely spot to catch a glimpse of migrating whales in the right season). Where to stay: This cozy, seaside retreat is a little more than an hour and a half from Eugene Airport, but only a short walk from Nye Beach — “the Gem of the Oregon Coast.”

Best for Quiet Coastal Living

To call these elongated stays a vacation doesn’t feel quite right. Noticeably absent are the long days of sightseeing and late nights of fine dining, bar hopping and meeting new people in a city you’ve never visited before. In their place, you’ll have plenty of time to shack up, lay low and get some work done.
