The Sky's the Limit

Laura Ness | June 26, 2019 | Feature Story California Destinations Travel National


Skylonda Lodge, a 16-acre retreat tucked into the hills along Skyline Boulevard in Woodside, has long been a secluded destination for VIPs from the silver screen and those who stare at their computer screens too long. Recently purchased by Crescent Real Estate for renovation, it reopens in late summer as Canyon Ranch Wellness Retreat - Woodside, with short retreats for wellness seekers who will be immersed in carefully curated, nature-infused experiences intended to rejuvenate and restore. Canyon Ranch, with four decades as an integrative wellness industry leader, specializes in programs that help individuals make changes in their lifestyle, and offers coaches for nutrition, exercise, meditation, yoga, massage and mindfulness. Some 14 rooms in the inn are complemented by 24 rooms in standalone treehouses (with private decks) beneath centuries-old redwoods. With a spa, sauna, labyrinth, indoor saline pool and whirlpool, as well as indoor and outdoor training grounds, there’s ample reason to relax while connected to the blissful beauty of nature. 16350 Skyline Boulevard
