Copperhood stands apart from other destination spa experiences. This beautiful intimate getaway sits quietly along the serene Esopus Creek among woods, mountains, trails with views galore. If the location were not enough to relax you, the kindness of proprietress Elizabeth and her dedicated staff make sure that you get what you need.
I did the juice detox and the raw food option because I did want to change my lifestyle and start fresh physically. The juices were prepared fresh and were delicious blends of fruits and vegetables. I enjoyed how they tasted but more so how I felt after a few days- and I did not think I would. The raw food cuisine was EXCELLENT, as was everything served- every guest loved the food, both raw and cooked.
Daily hikes were fantastic- you could go at your own pace and walk alone or with others. The scenery was extraordinary and made me want to hike all over.
The massages and facials were also wonderful. There is a daily schedule with meditation, yoga, aqua aerobics, muscle toning, etc, all small in size and with lots of personal attention. You can opt in or out of anything here- the idea is to listen to your biody, relax, and rejuvenate. I met several other travelers and although we were all from different places and backgrounds, we became friends through the shared Copperhood experience.
I loved it. I lost weight. Cleared my head. Weeks later I feel fantastic. Elizabeth runs a wonderful nurturing place- I cannot wait to return again. :)
