Healthy lifestyle company The Ranch expands its portfolio with the brand’s first-ever East Coast property in New York’s Hudson Valley. Slated to open summer 2023, the 25-guestroom Ranch Hudson Valley will lie just 45 minutes from New York City.
“We are thrilled to be expanding to the East Coast! The Ranch Hudson Valley is ideally situated less than an hour from New York City, Connecticut and New Jersey,” said Alex Glasscock, founder and CEO, The Ranch. “We wanted to respect and satisfy the ongoing demand from our East Coast guests to open a property closer to them. Given its idyllic location, we also hope it becomes the perfect destination for corporate groups looking to integrate a more health-minded approach to their offsite retreats, meetings and incentive travel programs.”
Situated on 200 acres of a historic lakefront estate, The Ranch Hudson Valley immerses guests in nature as they experience the core elements of The Ranch program: hiking, fitness classes, yoga, deep-tissue passage and a plant-based diet. The Ranch Hudson Valley will offer three-day and four-day wellness programs of varying intensity.
While the daily schedules of the three-day and four-day programs vary, afternoons in both programs include naptime, strength training, restorative yoga and a daily massage. The Ranch’s menu consists of a nutrient-dense, plant-based diet with much of the ingredients harvested from the on-site organic garden or supplied by local, organic farms. The Ranch Hudson Valley will also feature The Ranch Private, a personalized program done separate from the large group. The property also serves as a retreat for corporate groups wanting to create a private and customizable, health-centric experience for employees or clients.
