Hemlock Neversink might sound like something straight out of a fairytale, and, well, that’s because it pretty much is (though it’s actually named after a local tree and the area’s reservoir).
Located upstate in the stunning Catskill Mountains, about a two hour drive from NYC, this cozy resort is a place to escape reality and frolic within 200+ acres worth of woodsy elegance. It first opened in October of 2023, and it’s already making quite the name for itself.
The resort is made up of 34 rooms spread across five cabin-like buildings, ranging from single rooms fit for solo travelers to the grand suite complete with two large private deck patios and even a personal treatment room for private in-room spa services.
And even indoors you’ll feel one with nature as the color palette throughout the entire resort practically brings the naturalness of the outside in, with its neutral tones, wooden furniture, and overall simplicity and calmness.
What we mainly have our eye on though is all of the activities and wellness services the resort offers–it’s practically like an adult centric summer camp (but much, much better).
The 230 acre property comes equipped with six miles of trails for hiking and guided nature walks. You can even embark on a morning hike with their resident rescue goats!
There are also tennis courts and a number of creative activity offerings such as terrarium workshops, vision boarding, stargazing and cloud spotting, candle making, pine-needle weaving, and a Catskill honey and tea tasting with a local honey sommelier.
At the spa everything from riverstone massages and detox herbal wraps to scalp massages and custom facials can be enjoyed by guests in any of the spa’s twelve treatment rooms–all which offer stunning views of the surrounding woodlands.
In addition to traditional spa treatments, other wellness offerings include reiki and reflexology, drum circles, yoga, meditation, and dance classes. Or you can simply indulge in some R&R in the sauna or indoor pool.
Foster Supply Hospitality, the company behind Hemlock Neversink, even earned an “outstanding restaurateur” James Beard nomination earlier this year, and that definitely shows through Bittersweet, the resort’s dimly lit restaurant and bar.
Bittersweet takes a plant-forward approach, offering a prix fixe menu that changes daily and blends mindful eating with a fine dining sensibility.
Each four-course dinner begins with a “snack from the kitchen” before leading into dishes such as Roasted Persimmon, Flatbreads, Stews, Dumplings, and Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse.
And did we mention that the resort even offers cooking classes?! The classes are led by skilled chefs and nutrition experts and offer guests a unique opportunity to learn the art of preparing nutritious and delicious meals.
Nestled within a serene oasis filled with woodsy nooks and stunning wildflower meadows, Hemlock ticks off all the boxes of a cozy mountainside escape.
And the best part–your all-inclusive rate includes all meals, activities, workshops, and even a dedicated Experience Guide!
