My family has lived in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains
for over 50 years. It’s special here.
Get back to what matters most.
Arcady 5 is a portal to a simpler time at a slower pace.

Overlook Mountain is a Sacred Place.

Breathe in its natural beauty,

stand with the tall trees, rest on an inviting rock. 

Nature will hold you; 

restore your spirit

reduce anxiety, 

repair dis-ease.

Asian cultures call it yugen

The sensation of experiencing something from the heart – 

an awe-inspiring sense of wonder. 

It’s special here, friends.

Mindful outdoor experiences;

Find a deeper connection to nature;

Boost your mind body and spirit;

Indulge your five senses at Arcady 5.


Get back to what matters most–family, simplicity, mother earth.

Hi, I am Judy.

These trees are my family. I am a graduate of Skidmore College and Kirpalu Mindful Outdoor Leadership program. I have worked with children and adults from North Carolina to Pennsylvania to Missouri. It is my greatest joy to share the forest.
