This weekend we invite all members of all ages who love fresh air, exploring and relaxing!

The House:

The house is a modern and clean chalet style house in a wooded area in Highland, NY.  It is in between Poughkeepsie, New Paltz and Kingston, NY.   A beautiful train ride from NYC or a 90 minute drive from Manhattan.  There are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. A huge wraparound deck, a big fire pit, BBQ grill, meditation paths, a cool tree house games and plenty of room to unwind! Space is limited to 6 (plus Dave & additional host). Take a virtual tour of the property
