Hudson Valley, NY
The Dutchess isn’t a place you stumble across while researching upstate getaways, and it’s virtually impossible to book without an “in”. In fact, all guests are connected by a common thread—knowing either a person who is going, or one who has stayed at the hotel previously. This extended social web is one of the things that makes weekends at The Duchess a special experience. Every guest is in on the secret, and there’s nothing like a shared secret to enhance bonding. In many ways it conforms to the blueprint of a retreat center, but with a twist. For every group, the team curates (or co-curates with a host) a unique experience based around a particular theme. They’ve organized Vipassana silent meditation, and turned the property into a mini France, with language lessons and a scavenger hunt conducted entirely in French
Livingston Manor Fly Fishing Club
Livingston Manor, NY
Livingston Manor Fly Fishing Club lies on the banks of the Willowemoc River, the birthplace of dry fly fishing in America, and is built on this very idea. But rather than limit themselves to the sport of fly fishing, they aim to introduce guests and members to a slower pace of life - more connected to the natural environment. The club is housed in two lovingly restored buildings in the heart of the quaint town of Livingston Manor, and extends to five acres of riverfront estate. The property has been designed to meld the comforts of home with the beauty of nature and encourage those that stay there to explore, get inspired, make, relax, and connect with one another and their environment.
