Inn pursuit: A Spa Week deal worth chasing


Buttermilk Inn & Spa in Ulster County
The Buttermilk Inn & Spa in Ulster County dates to 1680

New York celebrates Spa Week October 12-18, when treatments at participating spas are just $50 and a city-wide frenzy ensues to land one. Joining the roster of spas this year is bucolic Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa, just 90 miles from the city in Ulster County. Its 70 Hudson River-fronting acres make it just outside your spa-deal- seeking competition.

Why skip town to get the deals? The eco-friendly inn with 13 rooms and three charming cottages is already affordable: Rooms start at $225 (some have fireplaces, balconies, and whirlpool tubs). And the discounted $50 treatments (book ahead) are fairly substantial, such as a 45-minute Virgin Coconut Oil Massage, 45-minute Refreshing Jurlique Facial, and a 50-minute Pumpkin Enzyme Pedicure. A bit of perspective: Cost of a one-night stay and all three treatments approximate that of a Deep Tissue Massage and gratuity at The Peninsula Spa by ESPA in Manhattan.

But wait, there’s more: The massage therapists here are a solid group (wish we could say that about all the places participating in Spa Week), just like those at Buttermilks’s city sister spa, Great Jones. And treatments buy you access to the spa’s mineral-water indoor pool, sauna, and steam room (all of which run on geothermal and solar power), as well as yoga classes, which are occasionally offered. Note that the Inn only serves breakfast (eggs come from free-range chickens whom you may meet during your stay and produce from on-site organic gardens) and afternoon tea. Still, if you can get away midweek, this might be one of the best Spa Week deals yet.

Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa, 220 North Road, Milton, NY; 845-795-1310 (inn) or 845-795-4050 (spa); www.buttermilkfallsinn.com
