Get your zen on this awesome Catskills getaway

Vacations can be great, but there are a lot of times when you literally need a vacation. You spend time running, trying to fit all kinds of fun things into your days off, and by the time you get back to work you’re exhausted. Have you ever thought about taking a truly zen vacation? You can do it right here in the Hudson Valley.

Joy Cottage is a newly renovated Zen home located in Catskill, New York, designed with inspiration from the wabi-sabi aesthetic. The chalet is located on the site of the Mahayana temple. Built in 1962, the Mahayana Temple in Leeds is the oldest Buddhist temple in the eastern United States. And you will have full access to the temple retreat if you stay at Joy Cottage. Want to see what Zen looks like? Even the images are calming.
