hotel/spa recommendations between Syracuse and Boston?
I am turning 50 in Sept. and what I told DH is that I don't want a "thing" for my gift but I would like some time away, to be by myself, which is very rare for me. I did it when I turned 40, too, with a 3-day weekend in Maine. This time, I am going to visit my college freshman (to be) in Syracuse for two days at the end of Sept., and from there, I have two more nights to go where I want before I have to report back home. Syracuse is a 5+ hour drive from where we live, so I'm looking for a place that is more or less on the way home from Syracuse. It will be the very end of Sept., so someplace scenic would be nice, with a spa on site, and maybe a nice town/village with some shops. Any suggestions? I really know nothing about that whole area.
It looks like Northampton, MA is pretty much along the way, but I have been there a lot already. Looking for something new!
