New Life Hiking Spa

New Life's News

From the “Best Retreat You Didn’t Know About” to #1

We feel extremely, extremely blessed to experience the growth we have in the past few years.

In 2013, Huffington Post included us in an article titled “8 Awesome Wellness Retreats You Didn’t Know About”.  Then, just three years later, we were on the Today Show as the #1 Destination Spa in the United States.

Our affordable price, incredible hiking, amazing staff, location in the heart of the Green Mountains, freshly prepared healthy food and our blissful massages have all come together to give us major recognition.   It’s this recognition that allows us to continue.  Thank you to the thousands of customers over the past 4 decades that have taken the time to vote for us and/or write a review.  We truly appreciate it!

We are still small enough to keep the same atmosphere we have always had.  We have the same incredible guest to staff ratio and the same schedule, offering 21 different hikes each week and a wide variety of fitness classes and cooking demos.  We aren’t changing, we are just filling-up faster.  You’ll still get the owners when you call to personally answer any questions.  Most likely, you’ll get Jimmy, who started New Life Hiking Spa in 1978!

It really is like camp for gown-ups with a nice room and a massage at the end of the day.  Founded forty summers ago, you won’t find another place in the country with the proven track record, affordable prices and as many return guests as New Life Hiking Spa.

What are you waiting for?  Book your 2017 New Life vacation this month and our prices start at just $189 per person/per night.  Yes, that includes everything…even a massage for each three nights you are there.  You’ve got to admit, that’s a pretty amazing deal!
