Escape to the past.
Welcome to the Hudson Valley, a home for former New Yorkers and a weekend holiday home for current ones to get away from the hustle & bustle of a big city! A mere 1.5 hrs drive will bring you to a completely opposite world, where life moves a little bit slower and reflects a simpler life.
Treat yourself to a relaxing outdoor weekend exploring Catskills mountains. Breathtaking natural attractions and fantastic views are everywhere around you! Catskills are also known for its number of well-maintained hiking trails just waiting for you to explore! Moreover, did you know that there are more than 98 peaks around here?
To sum up, this weekend is all about reconnection in a stress-free zone. Daily yoga sessions will empower you in the morning and restore you in the evening. Yoga sessions are taught by a certified yoga instructor and are agreed upon the groups’ abilities, whether it is a family holiday or a group of individuals. In short, our aim is to cater to your needs while focusing on meditation and relaxation. In between the day, you can join in some of the guided hikes around the area that will offer you a portion of the much-needed exercise and bring fresh thoughts in your mind!
Our weekend program does not require any previous yoga/hiking skills and is suitable for families or individuals. The outside of our lodge offers a peaceful environment and tranquillity, where you can chill, meditate, do yoga, eat, read, or simply enjoy the vibrant powers coming from surrounding nature. Being located so close to nature, we encourage disconnection from everyday jobs. Focusing on ourselves, our comfort and wellness is the priority during this weekend away from the city.
Your safety is our priority!
We understand your travel anxiety in these times, that is why we created this perfect worry-free, short travel trip in the adventure capital of NYC – Catskills! We believe nature heals everything and a good old-fashioned chill in the countryside relieves you from all the stress and worries.
Local travel, private departures, private & high standard accommodation, small groups, and organic food is there for you! We carefully disinfect all the equipment and accommodation after every use, while the area itself, takes care of the rest. Play safe in the outdoors was always our moto!
Your Catskills dream lodge
Our lodge near Hudson Valley comes with all modern amenities and provides a much-needed respite from the city!
Located in the heart of Catskills, there are a few places that are more remote and safer than this one. Our chalet is located right on the border with the forest and offers numerous options to unwind and soothe your soul.
The house was designed with your enjoyment and relaxation in mind. This space is perfect for retreats, as it boasts with a grand kitchen, where your in-house chef will prepare you delicious meals, a big and open area for dining and a cozy lounge room for hanging together at the fireplace in the evening.
Furthermore, rooming is organized per family (same household together) or on a double room basis for two people. You can always choose to upgrade into a single room at an additional cost.
Meals are organized in the lodge itself. Breakfast is on a self-service basis, focusing on organic food with vegan options too. Throughout the day, there is fresh fruit available in the kitchen and some healthy snacks to boost your energy. Lunch is free and optional, you can always check out the nearby restaurants, that we recommend. Dinner is included in the price and is prepared by our local, in-house chef.
