Barrel Sauna at Race Brook Lodge

Race Brook is a rustic retreat destination in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts. We have 30 guest rooms, an historic restaurant, dynamic meeting and event spaces and an organic farm on the property. We host overnight guests, plus workshops, weddings, live music and dance events, yoga retreats, corporate meetings and more. With this project, we are excited to usher Race Brook Lodge into the next chapter. We have a vision for a hospitality operation that is rooted in our core values of respect and appreciation for the Earth. It’s inspired by a desire to support important efforts to reduce the impacts of climate change and regain a harmonious coexistence with each other and our world. 

This sauna project is an important step on this Journey. My wife Saadia and I originally connected through an interest in holistic health and different healing modalities. We believe that personal health and relaxation are at the heart of our biggest challenges as a global community. Installing a sauna at Race Brook Lodge enhances the overall experience for all our guests, and provides a cornerstone amenity for additional wellness offerings throughout the year. Whether you are just getting out of the city for a weekend, hosting your wedding at RBL, attending a workshop retreat weekend, or joining colleagues for a productive and creative corporate meeting, the sauna will deepen and enhance your experience.

So we’re asking for your help now to launch this project and make it a reality, and we’re offering some great rewards when you do!

 
 

Thank you so much!
