This out-of-this-world campsite in a galaxy far far away is just a two-hour drive from the Capital Region. If you want to unplug but have some upgraded camping amenities then this Airbnb is for you. You don't have to be a Star Wars fan to book this campsite, but if you are, then you appreciate the attention to detail. The campsite includes 2 canvas safari tents, each with a queen-sized bunk bed, 2 pop-up tents for additional campers, 2 picnic tables, fire pits, and Adirondack chairs to soak up the lake view. It also has two outhouses that are environmentally friendly. Plus there is a Coleman sun shower to rinse off.
There's a quaint tiny home hotel that is only an hour and a half from the Capital Region where you will feel like you are in the middle of nature. It's called Hurley House and it is a new retreat on the grounds of the old Twin Lakes resort in Hurley, NY. There are tiny homes set up all throughout the rolling hills in the shadow of the Catskill Mountains alongside a beautiful lake. These 400 square-foot homes have everything you need for a relaxing stay. They all have floor-to-ceiling windows to enjoy the scenery along with a skylight in the bathroom for natural light. Hurley House is set to open this spring.
Adam Sandler, the comedic-acting genius behind Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, The Waterboy and The Wedding Singer (just to name a few) released a schedule of stand-up comedy tour dates. While it appears that he'll only be making a handful of appearances in 2019, one stop on his "100% Fresher" tour will be well within driving distance of the Capital Region.
