It’s a fairy tale come true.

With this month marking the 70th anniversary of the animated film Cinderella, fans might be looking for a way to celebrate. And one hotel in the Catskills wants to help in the grandest of ways. The Roxbury at Stratton Falls just launched a brand-new themed cottage—Cinderella’s Gown—fit for a fairy tale stay.

“If we had the ability, we would give you a fairy godmother during your stay who would wave a wand and magically adorn you in a resplendent outfit,” reads the description. “But because we can’t do that, we came up with the idea to give you a cottage with other features to help you live the fairy tale.”

Upon entering, you’re greeted by an 18-foot ball gown, doubling as a bedroom canopy and an enormous pumpkin morphing into a golden-carriage style bathroom. The 17th-century European-inspired design fills the cottage, as well as the original, repurposed 1848 beams to give the space the feel of time-traveling. Just outside, princesses and princes will enjoy stellar views of the nearby meadow and distant Catskills Mountains, as well as quick access to nature trails built just for The Roxbury property, which wind around the famous Stratton Falls with a fairytale aesthetic.

Other features of the cottage include two queen en-suite bedrooms and a fireplace in the downstairs bedroom, making it the only cottage with a fireplace. The common space also has a sleeper sofa making it possible for a total of six guests to stay in the suite. There’s also a screened-in back-porch with outdoor dining tables so that you can enjoy a meal with a stunning view.

“Life is not always a fairy tale,” the hotel points out. “But isn’t that all the more reason why it might be nice to escape into a fairy tale for a weekend or even one night?”

The cost to live like a princess for the night? Room rates range from $600 to $775 per night.
