At Club Getaway you can Get Out and Play every sport under the sun. Head out on new adventures. Take lessons from a Pro. Dine on an abundance of delicious food. Socialize. Dance all night. Laugh. Relax. And just have fun. The beautiful and rustic Weekend Resort is located on 300 acres overlooking a sparkling lake. In the nearby Berkshire Mountains of Kent, CT, Club Getaway is just 90 minutes from New York by car or Getaway bus. Just grab a buddy, or come by yourself and make friends everywhere you go.
Meet your match in basketball, volleyball or tennis. Hit the road with one of our Specialized road bikes or the lake for a little waterskiing. Share a keg at our co-ed softball game or team up for an action packed game of dodgeball.
Climb the Berkshire Mountains and rappel down a rock ledge. Hike along the Appalachian Trail or up Kent Falls. Discover the rush of soaring through the air on a flying trapeze or the 350-foot aerial zip line.
Stimulate your senses with the arts, food and wine. Become a salsa sensation in dance class. Let chefs from the Connecticut Culinary Institute show you how to cook up delicious dishes. Take a class in wine tasting.
Take a short walk to the charming town of Kent, Connecticut to enjoy an ice cream cone and browse through the antique shops. Lounge by the lake with a good book. Take a yoga or massage class. Tour a local vineyard in the Litchfield Hills.
Share the day’s adventure at Happy Hour by the lake with live music, great drinks, and a complimentary BBQ. Dance in the Boat House Club. Play volleyball under the stars. Join strumming guitars and s’mores around the campfire.
You are welcome to drive or arrange a car pool. But the bus most of us will be taking leaves from 63rd Street & 1st Avenue at 6:00 PM on Friday (please arrive at 5:30 PM for check-in). The bus leaves Club Getaway at 4:00 PM on Sunday and returns to the same location approximately 6:00 PM. The cost for the bus ride is $45 per person round trip… and wine is included!
Please note that reservations for the bus must be made in advance.
Overlooking our lake and mountains, our classic country cabins have a wonderfully rustic feel, but you’ll never feel like you’re “roughing it.” With air conditioning and a private bath, plus daily housekeeping, you’ll be one comfy camper. The cabins sleep four, but for those who’d like more privacy:
- For an extra $15 per person per night (total cost $90 extra) your cabin will only sleep three.
- For an extra $25 per person per night (total cost $100 extra) your cabin will only sleep two.
Dining at The Club
Dining at The Club is a special occasion. Our chefs will tempt you with the freshest ingredients, the tastiest dishes and the most tempting desserts. Breakfasts are hot and cold buffets with everything you can imagine. Lunch barbecues and international buffets are served outdoors. Wine and conversation flow freely at dinner tables of eight. And if you crave an afternoon snack, we’ve got you covered at the grill.
Our International Cast of Characters
In addition to our Pro Team, you’ll love meeting the rest of our characters. Many go from being doctors, teachers and business people during the week to sailing instructors, volleyball coaches, and mountain biking guides on weekends. Many others come from around the world to give our place a cool international vibe.
When you decide to spend this all-inclusive weekend with us, the only things that aren’t included are soft drinks or additional alcohol.
That means, for the entire weekend, you’ll be getting six meals (and wine with dinner), all aforementioned activities, and of course your accommodations.
You get all that for just $298.45 (not including the bus, or the “privacy” surcharges) when you mention that you’re going with the New York Asian Professionals Meetup (NYAPM).
(The normal rate is $279 + 17.5% tax & gratuities, for a total of $327.83. You save $29.38 just by being a part of the NYAPM — or knowing someone who’s a member. )
Or call Club Getaway at (877) 777-6055 and mention the New York Asian Professionals Meetup.
