Start Your Day with a Morning Walk

Take a stroll beneath the red rock cliffs and stop to greet our friendly farm animals. It’s a simple way to start your day on a positive note.
Schedule a Health and Wellness Class
If you’re planning a wellness retreat with friends or another group, take things to a whole new level by scheduling a health or wellness class or two during your visit.
We offer a variety of types of classes catering to various needs. Whether you want to get your blood pumping or learn new skills to help you further your health and wellness journey when you get home, some courses and activities we have available include:
- Yoga classes
- HIIT classes
- Guided hikes and walks
- Cooking classes with excursions to farmer’s markets and garden
- Nutrition classes
- Guided breathing and meditation
You don’t have to have a wellness retreat in mind to schedule one of these classes. They are also a great addition to your itinerary for a corporate retreat, conference, or even a family reunion or wedding weekend.
Get Your Workout in at the Gym
Don’t want to miss your workout during your vacation? If you’re staying at the Lodge, you’ll have access to our full fitness facility. It features 2 treadmills, 2 ellipticals, a COncept 2 rower,as well as a weight tower, pull-up bar, and more.
When you’re done sweating it out, step into the included sauna and reward yourself with a more relaxing sweat session. There’s also a steam room available. The fitness facility makes it easy to treat your body inside and out during your visit, and keep up with your fitness routine.
Plan a Spa Day
Bring the spa to you by scheduling massages, facials, or other treatments during your trip. We can help you coordinate your spa party, customizing the experience for your group.
If your group will be renting out the Lodge during your stay, you can enhance your spa day with time in the steam room and sauna as well.
Relax in Your Casita
Just because you aren’t staying at the Lodge doesn’t mean that you won’t have plenty of opportunities for rest and relaxation; our Casitas provide the same luxury experience on a smaller, more intimate scale.
Sip coffee on your private deck or relax in your living room space. In the winter, the fireplace enhances the experience, while each Casita includes bathrobes for you to lounge around in comfort.
Lounge in the Hot Tub
No matter how you choose to spend your day, what better way to end it than with a soak in a hot tub? Relax, unwind, and enjoy time with friends or family as you soak in the hot tub beneath the stars.
For those staying in the Lodge, private hot tubs are available for some of the suites, while the rest have access to a community hot tub. Guests in the Casitas also have access to a community hot tub.
