Of course summer is the time of year where you're always on the go. The weather makes it easiest to get around, especially in New England, and you just seem to have more energy. The sun is also out longer, tricking us into thinking we have more time in the day to get things done. All of these extras summer brings along can take a toll on us and cause exhaustion. Consider taking the time to rejuvenate during these hot months instead of just burning yourself out. Check out these three retreats that will have you relaxed and refreshed in time for fall!

Visit the 5,000-square-foot spa where you can enjoy treatments like hydrotherapy and aromatherapy without forgetting your setting and take a dip in the 40-foot swimming pool that sits discreetly in a green meadow, not far from their luscious gardens or get a taste of their seed to table philosophy at their five-star restaurant; it'll change your view of "fresh" forever. Winvian Farm offers an array of packages and rates pending the night of the week you choose to visit.
Stowe Mountain Ranch Yoga Retreat Center
This Stowe Vermont sanctuary challenges each individual to be fully present, to engage in both yoga practice indoors and outdoors along the beautiful Vermont countryside. At this rustic ranch, complete with a quaint overnight retreat center, instructors lead sessions of all kinds, from vinyasa and hot yoga, to yoga and writing, and even yoga with horses.
