Putnam County, less than 60 miles north of Manhattan, might be an unlikely getaway destination but if you are looking to take a break from the hustle and bustle of NYC, here's a fun idea for a mini-vacation (or bachelorette weekend!) in Carmel, New York!

Friday: Rent this "tree house" AirBnB with a few of your closest friends. Grab an early dinner at Thai Golden (get the roti appetizer!), then head over to Jar Worthy where you can blend your own signature scent and then pour your own candle. While your candle sets, walk over to The Art of Healing for some relaxing yet rejuvenating yoga. Then pick up your custom candle and head back to the tree house for late night snacks and some serious girl talk on the deck.
Saturday: After grabbing coffee at The Pantry, stroll through Cold Spring and enjoy some amazing antiquing and equally amazing views of the Hudson River or go for a hike at Fahnestock State Park or on the treehouse's property. For dinner, pick up some locally raised meats at Marbled to create your own culinary masterpiece at the treehouse or just grab some Indian take-out from the Curry House (try the gobi!).
Sunday: Sleep late, enjoy some fresh air, then head back to NYC.
Jar Worthy and the Art of Healing have paired up for a fun candle making/yoga event on this Friday night from 6:30 to 8:30. Tickets are $30 per person. Sign up here!
Hope to see you in Putnam County soon!
