For years, I have searched for a place to escape from the emotional, mental, and physical toxins that cloud my day-to-day environment. Having failed repeatedly, I thought what I wanted wouldn’t exist until I built it myself… until I found Adytum.
Kat and Donn have built a beautiful oasis in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen, and they maintain it with the attention to detail that comes from an unblemished idealism around good health. Everything about this place is designed to be the very best, without pretentiousness or any of that corporate veneer of faux-“healthy” that had left me feeling so jaded.
Their tap water was some of the best I’ve ever tasted, because it’s been put through several levels of purification that most people have never even heard of. When I ran a bath (in the jumbo multi-person tub that still filled quickly due to the incredible water pressure…), I was dunking myself in water more pure than I usually have the privilege of drinking.
There wasn’t just “access” to a sauna… the far-infrared sauna was *in our suite* and we were encouraged to use it as much as we wanted. No overpriced, chemical-laden hotel restaurant pretending to be healthy… instead, an incredibly well-stocked kitchenette and dining room, giving us the freedom to eat well on our own schedule, without hassle. And with only short notice of my allergies, Kat was not only able to add several things that made my stay easier, but every single thing in that fridge was up to my heavily-researched standards. I laughed with her about the fact that we even buy some of the same brands!
How wonderful to be able to vacation without needing to pack in every single thing I need to stay healthy! Beyond that, the suite and grounds were a thing of beauty that I’ve rarely encountered…. The most luxurious sheets I’ve ever slept on, exquisite views of the lake, lush greenery, an incredible sunset that we viewed from their salt-water hot tub (which they had heated and ready in February…! ).
The grounds felt thoroughly remote, and we enjoyed wandering around and simply experiencing the beauty of it all. Kat graciously gave us a tour of the rest of the property, which further reflected their commitment to promoting not just good health but the enjoyment of it.
I was convinced they must have had the best interior designer in the world, until Kat told me that all the lovely art and furnishings came from their extensive travels! There were even stacks of a variety of books, movies, and magazines, all artfully tucked into the sweetest little chests and drawers, or displayed in the most picturesque way. It felt like living in a magazine.
Communication was consistently top-notch and our hosts were attentive without being intrusive, and flexible with our late arrival. Bottom line: I felt uncommonly safe, spoiled, and at home with my hosts and in the space, and cannot wait to return.
A lovely experience! We stayed for our 5th anniversary and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Adytum is truly an oasis. The suite is beautiful, the grounds are beautiful, and the view is beautiful! The room was very well stocked, comfortable, and private. Kat is a warm, engaging host. We would highly recommend a stay at Adytum!
The Orion Suite surpassed our expectations. My wife and I had a wonderful two nights. Everything and more is provided.
Totally sybaritic. Highly recommended.
Our stay in the Orion Suite exceeded every expectation. The property is gorgeous- the suite itself is beautifully decorated, with an incredible outside setup. Our hosts (dogs included) greeted us upon arrival, and truly ensured we were taken care of throughout our stay. We tried to take advantage of all the amenities - salt water hot tub, sunset over the lake, beautiful stargazing, bonfire (with s'mores of course!), and walking trails through the property. I cannot think of one thing that could be improved for a future visit. We regret we only stayed one night and definitely plan on returning!
“My husband and I stayed in the Orion Suite for our anniversary, and were blown away by the gorgeous location and our amazing host, Katherine! The suite was lovely and very tidy, and contained every amenity we could imagine from bird-watching binoculars to ingredients for s'mores. The grounds and surrounding countryside were beyond beautiful. Her dogs were also incredibly adorable and sweet; we pretty much fell in love with them (and we are not even "dog people"!) We are planning another trip here in the future just to be able to stay in this beautiful location again! Katherine, we absolutely loved our stay and can't thank you enough for being such a great host!!”
