MOHONK MOUNTAIN HOUSE AND CRANWELL RESORT
FALL INSPIRED TREATMENTS TO COMPLEMENT MAGNIFICENT FALL FOLIAGE
Two Historic Hotels in the Northeast incorporate fall harvest fruit in
spa treatments to celebrate the season
NEW PALTZ, NY: -Fall Foliage at Mohonk Mountain House and Cranwell Resort has inspired many offerings this season for guests to enjoy the great outdoors as well as give their skin some much needed attention after a summer in the sun. Autumn-with its endless sweep of red, gold, and orange-leaved trees- is the perfect time to revitalize and nourish the skin while surrounded by crisp mountain air. Mohonk Mountain House and Cranwell Resort, Spa and Golf Club have created special Spa offerings in celebration of fall foliage.
Mohonk Mountain House - Spa-tacular Fall Getaway
Mohonk Mountain House, a Victorian-castle resort only 90 miles north of New York City located in the heart of the Hudson Valley, has created a new fall-infused facial. The Heavenly Harvest Facial features pumpkin found in the autumn harvest to help bring the complexion back to a clear, radiant and velvety smooth texture. In addition Mohonk Mountain House has introduced a new Spa-tacular Fall Getaway Package available September 4-November 30, 2006 with nightly rates starting at $279 per person (double occupancy), per night, Sunday-Thursday. Guests will have access to 85 miles of hiking trials in the Shawangunk Mountains and enjoy a credit of $75 per person to be applied toward a service in the resort's new 30,000-square-foot Spa, a welcome gift of pumpkin butter, three meals daily prepared by award-winning chefs, along with Afternoon Tea and Cookies.
Cranwell Resort - Harvest Spa in the Pantry
In addition to offering a spectacular showing of fall foliage, the Spa at Cranwell, located in Lenox, Massachusetts overlooking the Berkshire Mountains, offers Spa in the Pantry, a group of spa treatment recipes that anyone can create at home from items found in their own kitchen. The Spa at Cranwell created a special Spa in the Pantry facial mask recipe using fresh apples people often enjoy during autumn when local apple orchards are at their peak. The recipe includes one medium sized apple (grated) mixed with five tablespoons of honey that is then smoothed over the skin. After ten minutes the mask is rinsed away with cool water and the skin is left softened and hydrated. The mask also helps control oil production, calms sensitivity, and tightens and firms the skin.
