During my last visit, I traveled to Canyon Ranch for 5 days - my friend flew into the Albany airport (CR picked her up) and I drove from home. I have been many times in the past as a solo travel and other trips there with friends. This was my first visit in the summer and I really enjoyed it. I went kayaking - the lake they took us to was very calm and anyone could do it. The hikes are always fantastic - provided for all levels - and I liked sitting by the pool or on the patio and reading.
The rooms are very comfortable and cozy - lots of ammenitites in the rooms and in the locker rooms too.
Make sure to look at the schedule before booking spa appointments - you dont want to miss your favorite classes! I enjoyed some of the beading classes this trip and made a bracelet that I wear everyday that serves of a reminder to have some of the calm I got at CR everyday.
I really like the food - it is defnitely fiber packed! At all meals - there is a salad bar - fruit/yogurt, etc at breakfast and traditional salad stuff at lunch and dinner. The staff is so accomodating - dont forget that you can order 1/2 orders or double orders - the food is delish and the menus all change daily. I enjoyed the Cafe Jardon- an outdoor lunch option - with BBQ food and salads (ice cream cones too!).
I also went to Tanglewood - which is a beautiful outdoor theater in the area - we saw Train play. CR helped us book tickets, brought us chairs/snacks/drinks (its mostly lawn seats) and scoped out a great area for us to sit - as well as providing transportation. This was really nice because there is usually VERY little to do after dinner at CR and I enjoyed going to the concert - both for the music and the venue.
There are really good outlets about 10 minutes away - I always plan to go but get caught up with all the activities at the ranch and always find goodies at the CR boutique.
