We’re running out of space for our next

We’re running out of space for our next trip to Club Getaway on Labor Day Weekend. The 3 night/4 day holiday weekend always sells out.

Please give me a call today at 212-579-4844 to discuss about still joining our group in our very special upgraded LakeView cabins 🙂 Of course, available only to our friends.

If you need help planning anything else to make the most of your final summer weekends, you can always call me for ideas/suggestions.

Did you have any fun this past weekend? Come and have some FUN!

We’re headed back to Club Getaway for another amazing summer of all-inclusive weekends at the best sports resort in the Northeast!

Tucked away in the Berkshire Mountains of Kent, CT but just 90 minutes from NYC, Club Getaway offers the perfect alternative to a Hamptons weekend. Your trip includes lodging, meals, dozens of daytime sports and activities, and thrilling nightlife every evening!

When you book through, you are eligible for our exclusive reduced rates, preference on cabin selections and roommate matching with others from our group.

The ultimate weekend vacation awaits you at Club Getaway: an all-inclusive sports and adventure resort on 300 acres overlooking a sparkling lake in the Berkshire Mountains.
Rediscover your sense of adventure with mountain biking, rock climbing, zip-lining and the flying trapeze. Slip into your swimsuit and try water sports like sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, water-skiing and wake boarding. Or lace up your sneakers and play basketball, tennis, volleyball or pick up a glove and a mug for the famous keg softball game. Give your body a little reprieve and awaken your creativity with some of The Club’s non-sports activities. Take a dance lesson, a yoga or fitness class or create arts and crafts on the lakefront deck. Party the night away with new friends at the Boathouse Club or enjoy a sing-along with acoustic guitar at the campfire with s’mores for all!

The amenities at Club Getaway are like nothing you remember from camp. Enjoy meals prepared by chefs from the Connecticut Culinary Institute that include free-flowing wine at dinner. Your picturesque cabin features air conditioning and daily housekeeping.

The Fall Finale is our very special
This is our FAVORITE weekend to end the season.  The mountains are covered in beautiful, fall foliage.  It is amazing how colorful the leaves, flora and fora are.
Bring your costume and be prepared to enter our very scary HAUNTED HOUSE.
This is truly a weekend EXTRAVAGANZA!

Additional promotions may be available on select weekends.

At night time, they have seated dinners, entertainment, live music, DJ, dancing and parties.

It’s a great balance between doing activities and socializing. Of course, you can choose to do a lot of just relax by the lake with a drink in hand, which is where you’ll find me
