This is a knitting getaway in the beautiful Catskill Mountains of New York State. Breakfast will be a copious Continental breakfast served at the locations at Roxbury Motel and Roxbury Stratton. We will gather as a complete group for deliciously catered farm-to-table lunch and dinner. We have planned formal classes and instruction from our awesome knitting aficionados. The evenings have been booked with special musical artists and fun activities to participate in as a group. We will take a train ride through the beautiful Catskill mountain range. A spa offering relaxing spa services is available throughout the day. Early morning yoga classes are available as an add-on. You can opt in and out of the activities as you would like. Kristy, Amanda, Casapinka and Lesley are available to you to ask questions throughout the retreat. The pop-up indie dyer mini-market is available to all guests throughout the retreat.


Knit+Escape Roxbury Retreat begins on Thursday, November 11, 2021, at 3PM in the afternoon, and continues through breakfast on Sunday, November 14th. Checkout time is 11:00am Sunday, November 14th.


Knit+Escape is being held in the quaint and magical small town of Roxbury NY, in the heart of the scenic Catskill Mountains. Roxbury is approximately two and a half hours from New York City and one hour and twenty minutes from Albany International Airport. Participants will need a car to move between locations. Friends attending together can carpool but Knit + Escape is unable to provide transportation. The luxurious and highly individual accommodations are situated in two locations, both created by the Roxbury Experience, which consists of The Roxbury Motel and the Roxbury Mansion at Stratton Falls. Each location is approximately 2 miles apart. Tours of both locations are available before 3PM, we highly recommend touring both facilities. Book your escape here.


Thursday evening through Saturday night (dietary needs met by the chef if arranged in advance). Kristy Glass and our three special guests will join in at lunch and dinner. A cash bar will be available at dinner.


All king beds are shared and all queen beds are single occupancy, there are single, double, triple, quadruple and quintuple room options. Each of the rooms are themed and you will have an opportunity to reserve one of your choice. Book your escape here.

If all the spots are sold out, you can email us to be placed on the waiting list. Spaces will become available as plans sometimes change.


If you’d like to attend with friends and share a room, we suggest that one person books the required number of spaces and their roommates can reimburse them. That way you secure your preferred room and roommate/s before the spaces sell out. After your spots are secured, we’ll be in touch to accept the names of your roommates. If you do not state a preference, other participants may book the room and they will be sharing your room with you. Book your escape here.
