Getaway
Campfire

November always feels like a signal change. It’s when the seasons shift and here in the northeast, it starts to get properly cold. It’s as if fall is telling us the year is almost over — ”wrap up what you need to do before you’re hit with the blistering winter.”

More than that, it’s a month of gratitude. While I think it’s important to reflect and express gratitude throughout the year, it’s helpful to have an explicit holiday that reminds us all to say thanks. This year, there’s a lot to be grateful for.

The Getaway Team got together to celebrate all we’re thankful for. We traveled to our DC Outpost, disconnected from our devices and work, and celebrated with each other. We even had a Team Thanksgiving feast, dividing into teams, each responsible for cooking a different course over the campfire. I continue to be incredibly grateful for the dedicated people in the field and at our headquarters that make Getaway everything that it is. You can watch a snippet of our Team Thanksgiving above.

I am also grateful for our incredible guests across New York, DC, and Boston, who have embraced the intention of creating more balance for themselves. Whether it’s perusing through the #getawayoften mentions on Instagram or through direct feedback shared with me, our guests provide us with a sense of purpose day in and day out. I’m unsure if words do justice to the amount of gratitude that I – and our team – have for our guests, so we’ll reserve that energy and put it towards continuing to deliver an exceptional Getaway experience.

This month, we announced a brand new Outpost outside of Los Angeles, a project over a year in the making, and our first Outpost on the west coast. We’re excited and grateful to be able to serve our Angeleno friends in need of mindful escapes in 2019.

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

Be well,
Jon, CEO + Founder
