We live in a fast-paced world where unplugging and slowing down is getting more and more difficult each day. Amid the chaos, what if you could make more time for self-love and introspection? And what if you could do it in a place where mountain air, gorgeous natural surroundings, and healing sessions are abundant? Welcome to Wellness in the Catskills.



Situated in the tranquil Catskills Mountains our wellness lodge welcomes urban explorers to the beautiful year-round destination of the Catskills. With thoughtful design, friendly service, and delicious food and drinks, this will be the perfect basecamp for our escape to the outdoors.


Kingston, NY

We will head into Kingston for a delicious, healthy, and well-deserved meal after our hike of Giant Ledge. Enjoying conversation and maybe some quick shopping, you’ll have time to experience the town and the slower pace of life before heading back to the Lodge.



We will visit a healing sound bath - A beautiful meditation where harmonic vibrations are created by singing bowls, gongs, and other resonant instruments. While you sit or lie down, a bath of sound waves stimulates your alpha and theta brain waves which are associated with a deep meditative state. Sound healing synchronizes your brain and body, releases stress, and enhances inner peace and relaxation.


Nature & Beauty

Spend the morning participating in a wellness workshop focused herbal medicine. Our guide will discuss using simple herbal preparations for glowing beauty. Herbs for beauty are made into teas and potions that have side benefits of increasing energy, digestion, as well as prevention of disease. She will also go over the topical use of herbs for brilliant skin and healthy hair. This class will guide you in nurturing your own unique loveliness, and help you expand and clarify your own definition of beauty.
