By November 18, 2015April 5th, 2019No Comments


The Catskills have long been a place to escape the city for some well deserved R&R. In the 19th century the Overlook Mountain House and Mead’s Mountain House in Woodstock, provided a warm welcome for those seeking to escape the heat and unhealthy air of New York City during the summer. Today, there are numerous world class spas to be found.

GLO Spa (formally River Rock Health Spa) located in the heart of Woodstock, is a full service unisex spa, brining together the most up-to-date, luxurious skin & body treatments in the Hudson Valley under one gorgeous roof.

A 20 minute drive from Woodstock, The Emerson Spa overs a wide range of treatments & services including massage, body treatments, facial & skin care & a hair salon in a gorgeous setting. It’s a very chill atmosphere & once the treatment has finished you are welcome to relax in the hot tub or on the deck overlooking the river.

The Mohonk Mountain House Spa, is a 30 minute drive from Woodstock. The spa recently topped lists in Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure, making it a premier spa destination in upstate New York. Featuring 16 restorative treatment rooms, a solarium with stone fireplace, an outdoor heated mineral pool & a comprehensive fitness center. You can always make a day of it & include lunch and take a hike along the numerous hiking paths located at the resort.

If you don’t even want to leave the house – we wouldn’t blame you for that! Have a massage come to you.

Kari Hoyt, locally born-and-raised, has been practicing massage in the area for 11 years.  She will happily bring her table to your home-away-from-home, and take you to the next level of relaxation and rejuvenation. While her work tends to the slower, more deeply effective, she incorporates a variety of modalities and custom-tailors her work to your in-the-moment needs, encouraging you to guide the session (or not) as you feel the need.

Wherever you decide to go we know that once you return to your home-away-from-home you will continue the relaxation snuggling up in front of the wood burning fire!
