Earlier this year I wrote about a terrific wellness weekend I attended at the Woodstock Inn & Resort in Woodstock, VT. I’m happy to let you know that this very successful weekend is being repeated April 26-28, 2013 AND there’s an early-bird discount of 10 percent being offered through the end of August. Last spring I arrived in Woodstock in need of a break after several weeks of nonstop deadlines. A couple of days later I returned home refreshed and renewed thanks to the stress-free atmosphere, a relaxing facial in the spa, morning yoga and pilates, and some excellent advice from physicians and health-care providers on how to stay healthy while living a fast-paced life. Of course the inn’s excellent food, prepared with an eye toward healthy choices (which I’m happy to say included the nutritional benefits of chocolate!) added to the weekend’s enjoyment. For more information visit wellnessweekends.net, or book your space at the inn by calling 1-800-448-7900. And do check out my book, Backroads & Byways of New England: Drives, Day Trips & Weekend Excursions for more information about the inn and all the interesting things to do in the Woodstock area. You can find it at most bookstores or at amazon.com and it’s also available for your Kindle.
