Do you have any travel plans this summer? I’m eyeing The Glen Wilde, which opened this weekend in upstate New York and looks really cool. Take a peek…
In the 1950’s, the property had been a vacation community called Paradise Cove. Families visited every summer, but over the years, the place grew dilapidated and closed down. Now two friends — Josh Farley and Jeremy Floto — are bringing it back to life.
“Renovating the cabins was surreal,” Farley told us. “People who had rented every summer had gradually stopped coming. We found original Star Wars bedsheets still tucked onto beds. And great vintage mugs and plates that we’re now reusing.”
One- and two-bedroom bungalows are spread around 11 acres, less than two hours from New York City. The grounds have fire pits, hammocks and a big picnic table. It would be so fun and relaxed to go with friends.
Nearby, there are apple orchards, wineries, antique stores, a brewery and a swimming hole with a waterfall. “One of the best surprises, which we didn’t realize when we purchased it, is that the property backs up onto woods with hiking trails,” says Farley. “Plus a river and a great two-mile trek that puts you right into a cool old-school playground.”
Wouldn’t you love to go? Where else are you planning to travel this summer?
