Nestled on 140 secluded acres in New York’s Hudson Valley, Wildflower Farms is a verdant escape rooted in nature. The expansive grounds include orchards, animals, a namesake farm, and fields of wildflowers throughout. Nature framing design, bespoke cabins, cottages and suites, world-class, source-origin cuisine, a seasonally inspired spa, and unique outdoor experiences offer an oasis for urban visitors.
The property’s 9,000-square-foot wellness facility is named for the wild, health-supporting blooms that blanket summer’s fields in purple and blue. Thistle, an Auberge Spa harnesses the power of nature and its cycles to offer personalized seasonal treatment menus, combining age-old natural remedies and therapeutic bodywork with the life-enhancing principles of slow wellness.
Treatment menus are designed to nurture through three distinct yet integrated elements: a modern apothecary produces hand-harvested, small-batch botanical oils, scrubs and flower remedies in partnership with local botanical beauty line Cultivate Apothecary; immersive outdoor experiences focus on gently re-wilding the human spirit, and a considered aspect of joyful exploration is integrated into each treatment to impart an enduring sense of holistic wellbeing. Taking a hyper-customized approach to skin care, Thistle offers a treatment range in partnership with Biologique Recherche, whose clinical approach to beauty care uses pure, concentrated, and raw, active ingredients to produce immediate results.
As serene as the mountains it overlooks, the spa features six treatment rooms, outdoor hot tubs, and an indoor saltwater pool. Beyond the spa, the property’s expansive grounds are home to a 3,500-square-foot open-air fitness center, a movement studio offering daily classes, and three miles of hiking trails.
