US-based luxury health and wellness brand The Ranch is going to launch its first East Coast destination in the Lower Hudson Valley near Tuxedo Park, New York.

The Ranch currently operates two Californian retreats in Malibu and Sonoma but is gearing up to open its third property – just 45 minutes from New York City – in the middle of 2023.

The Ranch Hudson Valley will be set amidst 200 forested acres in a historic 40,000sq ft lakefront estate. It will offer three-day and four-day wellness programmes of varying intensities which blend hiking, fitness classes, yoga, deep tissue massages and a plant-based diet.

“We wanted to respect and satisfy the ongoing demand from our East Coast guests to open a property closer to them,” says Alex Glasscock, founder and CEO of The Ranch, “and The Ranch Hudson Valley is ideally situated less than an hour from New York City, Connecticut and New Jersey.

“Given its idyllic location, we also hope it becomes the perfect destination for corporate groups looking to integrate a more health-minded approach to their offsite retreats, meetings and incentive travel programmes.”

At The Ranch Hudson Valley, guests will be able to select the stay and intensity that suits their schedule and goals.

The Ranch 3.0 – a new three-day programme available Monday through Thursday – has been designed to provide a gentle immersion into The Ranch programme with a later wake-up time and an active daily schedule of four hours of low-impact exercise centred around a shortened two-hour hike each morning.

Meanwhile, The Ranch 4.0 programme is a challenging four-day weekend reset offered Thursday through Monday and features the brand’s no-options active daily schedule of six hours of low-impact exercise - centred around a varied four-hour hike each morning.

Afternoons in both programmes include naptime, strength training, restorative yoga and a daily massage.

As at the Ranch’s Malibu flagship, the menu will consist of a nutrient-dense, plant-based diet, with much of the ingredients to be harvested from the onsite organic garden or supplied by local, organic farms.

The Ranch Private – a personalised programme done separate from the larger group – will also be available in this location. Additionally, corporate groups will be able to create a private and customisable, health-centric experience for employees or clients.

“As demand continues to increase for wellness travel, The Ranch Hudson Valley allows for the opportunity to diversify our programming,” notes Glasscock.

“By introducing a less intense version of The Ranch experience through The Ranch 3.0, we hope to attract those that may have previously felt apprehensive to do the program. Alternatively with The Ranch 4.0, guests can challenge themselves over a long weekend with our signature daily schedule.

“Regardless of the programme they choose, guests are able to jumpstart a path towards better health and achieve profound physical and mental improvements in their overall wellness.”

The Ranch Hudson Valley will be set on Table Rock Estate – originally built in 1902 by JP Morgan for his daughter as a wedding gift when she married the great-grandson of Alexander Hamilton.

The detailed stonework and facade were quarried onsite and constructed by Italian masons, while the interiors feature rich woods, expansive fireplaces and intricately carved plaster ceilings.

Treestone Architecture and Construction has been tapped to restore and preserve the property’s extraordinary architectural features.

The estate is surrounded by the 4,000-acre Ringwood State Park, which will give guests access to hundreds of miles of trails, while the nearby 40,000-acre Harriman State Park will offer an alternative for morning hiking.

Interiors and design will be completed by New York designer, Steven Gambrel, principal of SR Gambrel.

In this project, he will be overseeing the layout and design of all spaces, including the property’s 25 guest rooms, a dining room overlooking the onsite lake and gardens, a spa and the transformation of the 2,000sq ft ballroom into the gym for afternoon fitness, yoga and meditation classes.

The property will also include a 5,000sq ft Solarium, adjacent to the estate and overlooking the grounds, with year-round exercise and pool facilities.

There will also be an outdoor pool, to accompany the property’s lake, for water activities to be incorporated into fitness programming in the Summer months.
