The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Go Country—and Carless—in Rhinebeck


4. Insider’s Tip

Book a shuttle ticket to the Omega Institute, where you'll find a yoga studio and spa.  

The Town of Rhinebeck is home to the Omega Institute, a 195-acre educational retreat, holistic wellness center, and spa eight miles south of Rhinebeck Village. Though most guests drive or reserve taxis to the sprawling campus—a $56 ride round-trip—there’s a lesser-known shuttle that departs from the Amtrak station in Rhinecliff and Beekman Arms in Rhinebeck on Fridays and Sundays for $20 round-trip (on the hour, 1 to 7 p.m.). Book a week in advance to secure a seat.
