As you may or may not know about me, I am majorly #dbsobsessed with Canyon Ranch in Tucson, AZ. This week I was lucky enough to be able to experience their location in Lenox, MA, in the Berkshires. While there are some things about this location that could be improved upon, and Tucson remains my favorite, there are some wonderful things about this place as well!
The grounds of this locations are really stunning. Pictured here is the front lawn of the property, as well as the ropes course, both located just in front of the Bellfontaine Mansion, which was restored by the owners of Canyon Ranch and houses the dining rooms and library.
The rooms all have views of the luscious outdoors, making for a beautiful backdrop.
Another excellent part of this location is the proximity to many lakes and ponds, allowing for a number of outdoor activities that celebrate the area. We have hiked the Appellation Trail, canoed Goose Pond and done stand-up paddleboarding on Lake Mahkeenac!
Finally, there s THE FOOD! I have been really impressed with the array of options here, as well as the quality of the food. From Bison Short Ribs and sliders with heirloom tomatoes (pictured above), to Elk Steak with Chimichurri and Mustard-Crusted Chicken, almost everything we have tried has been incredible. The secret to eating healthy here? A combination of what I would call 'real' food, and portion control. Now, if only we can all do this at home! Wish me luck! More to come...
