old-grist-mill-kent-connecticut-thomas-schoellerNestled in the Berkshire Mountains of Kent, Connecticut, this all-inclusive resort (located just 90 minutes from NY and 2.5 hours from Boston) offers comfortable lodging, delicious food, and a host of outdoor activities for all ages. And the fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Club Getaway is the place to be for happy hour and beyond; it even offers a nightclub on the lake. Rates include lodging, all meals (plus wine with dinner), sports and activities with instruction, and nightly entertainment.

Accommodations

A comfortable night’s sleep at Club Getaway means staying in an air-conditioned cabin overlooking the tranquil lake and mountains. Guests have access to private bathrooms and daily housekeeping.

Activities

Whether you want to enjoy an activity-packed vacation or simply breathe in the natural beauty, Club Getaway has something to do for every type of vacationer. The resort’s gem is the inviting lake, where guests are encouraged to swim, water ski, wakeboard, and kayak. Thrill seekers can get their fix by participating in the club’s offering of adventure sports, from rock climbing and zip lining to mountain biking. Guests are also welcome to get into shape while on vacation; Club Getaway offers yoga, Zumba, Pilates, and many other exercise classes. Sprawling 300 acres, Club Getaway is also ideal for off-site excursions.

Nightlife

If you still have energy after a full day’s fun, Club Getaway offers plenty of things to do when the sun goes down. Live music at the bar, beer garden karaoke, Texas hold’em, and watching the sunset are just a few of the activities you can participate in during happy hour. Guests can also enjoy dancing the night away at The Boathouse Club, a nightclub right on the lake, or relaxing around a late night campfire.

The Final Conclusion

Club Getaway is a beautiful retreat relatively close to home. We love it because you don’t have to stick to an itinerary, you don’t need transportation, and all meals and activities are included in the price! It’s a great way to enjoy a weekend in the wilderness without sacrificing comfort.
