DOWNSTREAM RETREATS – CATSKILLS
Our retreat space in the Western Catskills is nestled in the valley of the Moresville mountain range, near historic Roxbury, New York. Dedicated to yoga, education, and wellness, Downstream Retreats is located on ten acres of meadows and woodland with many spots to socialize or quietly enjoy the natural beauty. For classes and gatherings, we have a spacious, two story converted barn and a restored 1850s farmhouse. Both sit alongside a rushing mountain stream that feeds into the nearby East Branch of the Delaware River. The Catskills are our backyard with nearby hiking trails, skiing, cycling, swimming and outdoor recreation available year round.
