Getaway
Cabin Interior

I always look forward to March: longer days, rising temperatures, more time to spend outside. This March has been a special one. Today we opened our first Outpost in the South — Getaway Atlanta.

We can often get so wrapped up in the hustle of our day-to-day lives that we don’t take moments to pause and reflect on what exactly we’re doing. So that’s what I’d like to do here: take a few seconds to appreciate what Getaway Atlanta means to me.

Atlanta

On the surface – a new location, more cabins, more guests getting to enjoy some precious time away from distractions. But in a deeper sense, we’re doubling down on our commitment to provide our future guests the opportunity for a mindful renewal in nature. It’s something we’ll continue to do throughout the year. I couldn’t be happier to kick it off with Atlanta.

Beyond Atlanta, our busy month started with the National Day of Unplugging. We hosted meditation sessions with our friends at The Assemblage in New York, so workers could enjoy a few moments of calm before and after their workdays. A week later, we celebrated International Women’s Day with She’s the First, a non-profit that offers educational opportunities to women who are the first to receive secondary education in their families.

Even during these busy months, the team and I always obsess about reading all of your feedback. The whole team reads every email, comment, and notification that comes through. It helps make us better, keeps us on our toes, and ensures that we never lose sight of why we’re doing what we’re doing. Here are a few highlights from March for me:

Women around campfire

“Getaway was more than I could have imagined. It was a separation and isolation I didn’t even know I needed. I didn’t realize how dependent I had become on TV and internet. It was liberating to just do nothing. It was great to catch up with the friend I went with. We learned so much about each other but yet had our individual moments of rest.” – Jeraldin G., The June

“I’ve honestly never had a better weekend. This was everything I needed and I can’t stop talking about it.” Lisa W., The Sophie

“Loved the getaway- my boyfriend actually proposed to me when we were there and I am so thankful for the cabin. With our phones locked away, the getaway took the pressure off immediately sharing our news on social media. We got to enjoy the moment and our new chapter together then quietly re-enter the world.” Ellen C., The Robert

As always, feel free to get in touch if you have any feedback or ideas.

Be well,
Jon
