Even die-hard New Yorkers will admit that it’s nice to get out of the city—especially during the summer, when the hot sun is beating down on the sidewalks. Approximately 100 miles north of Manhattan in the scenic Catskills, model and shop owner Sunny Ruffalo has found a sweet retreat with her husband, Academy Award-nominated actor Mark Ruffalo, and their three children: son Keen, 18, and daughters Bella-Noche, 14, and Odette, 11. Their property in Narrowsburg, a tiny hamlet in Sullivan County, is a modernist lodge made of beautiful bluestone, featuring a hemlock-clad exterior surrounded by apple trees and a bountiful garden, with a fence built by Mark using found wood and branches. “We invested a lot of time and love into the house to make it exactly what we wanted it to be,” Sunny says. “The Catskills wound up becoming our heaven.” Here, she shares her essentials to pack for a weekend getaway upstate.
