Where We’re Headed (and What We’re Packing) for a Weekend Getaway

Where We’re Headed
(and What We’re Packing)
for a Weekend Getaway

In partnership with our friends at Tumi Logo

With summer Fridays a thing of the past, we’re relying on few strategically planned long weekends away to make the most of the season. We hit up three goop editors who truly understand how to optimize time out of the office. (For further proof, just look at their Instagrams.) Here’s where they’re headed—and what they’re bringing along for the ride.

“I just moved to LA from New York City, and one thing really I miss is fall—as in, the entire season: falling leaves, sweater weather, all of it. So I’m heading to the Berkshires in Massachusetts for a quick hit of East Coast autumn. I’m excited to finally tour the Mount, Edith Wharton’s home in Lenox, which I’ve wanted to see for years (her novel The Age of Innocence is one of my favorites) and checking out the Tourists, a renovated motor lodge in North Adams, on the bank of the Hoosic River.”

“The difference between perfectly acceptable olive oil and olive oil that makes your eyes roll back in your head it’s so glorious is…humongous. My love for the excellent stuff is why I’m headed to Cobram Estate’s sun-dappled olive groves in Woodland, California. What I really want is a lifetime supply of their incredible olive oil (I mix it into zingy lunchtime-salad vinaigrettes and glug it over roasted salmon and sweet potatoes, toast, sardines, everything), but I’ll settle for a stroll—and a meal—on the grounds.” Palm Springs, California header Nandita Khanna Profile

“Coming from the East Coast, you’d think I’d be looking for any excuse to go leaf-peeping, but instead, I’ll head to Palm Springs now that the crowds have quieted down. The Colony Palms Hotel is a low-key, fifty-seven-room spot in the Movie Colony. Under the watchful eye of interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, the rooms have been refreshed with Moorish design influences, French tiled floors, Uzbek suzanis, and vintage black-and-white photographs, and there’s plenty of outdoor space for lounging—plus a really good pool. The Colony Palms has just started offering twice-daily yoga classes, too. While I’d happily take all my meals in the hotel’s Purple Palm restaurant, I always plan one dinner at Workshop Kitchen + Bar, which is a quick bike ride from the hotel.”
