Tripsy Gypsy Kirsten Woodward at the Genie's Bottle room, Roxbury Hotel, Roxbury, NY

Living the Dream in a Genie-Inspired NY Theme Hotel

Blink hard and you may feel like you’re starring in an episode of the classic TV sitcom.

  • Location: The Roxbury Motel is three hours north of New York City in the delightful Catskills town of Roxbury, NY, which offers idyllic postcard charm. Famous for its art, antiques, shopping, and farm to table dining, it is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts who love everything from snow skiing to hiking to fishing and water sports.
  • Amenities: Full-service spa; swimming pool; trails that lead to a 50-foot waterfall; surrounded by gorgeous Catskill Mountain scenery; the property is a visual wonderland. Note that booking at the Roxbury Motel gives guests complimentary access to their sister location, The Roxbury Stratton Falls, 2 miles down the road. This larger location houses the full-service spa, swimming pool and waterfall.
  • Tripsy Gypsy’s Musings: The Roxbury Motel includes a variety of themed rooms as well as an archaeology-themed cottage. There are suites inspired by the Partridge Family bus, Bewitched, the Flintstones, Charlie’s Angels, the Jetsons, Star Trek, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, or you can step right into Miss Kitty’s Saloon. I chose the Genie’s Bottle room, and I literally felt like I had been sucked down into a life-size version of the iconic “I Dream of Jeannie” bottle. Very roomy at 800 square feet, the suite had two queen-size bedrooms; one full and one half bath; full living room; and a kitchen and dining area. An explosion of neon pinks, purples and oranges, all accented with gold and silver, it’s the polar opposite of minimalist. Picture pink cheetah and silver brocade sofas and streams of gauze fabric magically floating from the ceilings. The Genie’s Bottle bathroom is perfectly spherical and made of marble dust and glitter glass mosaic tiles sloping up to the “mouth” of the bottle, which is actually a solar tube cutting through the roof. It houses a 70-gallon Japanese soaking tub, where one can recline while watching television and sipping a beverage. The balcony outside the suite gives guests direct access to the upper deck and the glass firepit. George’s Spacepad, the adjoining suite, may also be rented for a larger group, or to perhaps separate the boys from the girls.
  • Cost: $$$. Optional add-ons available when you book, such as charcuterie board, champagne, etc.
