some tuesdays, new york city commuters wake up a little late. they walk a little faster in the cold. they stare longer than normal at the traffic beneath the subway and watch W after W go by as they wait for the only-option N train. they put ‘i’ll make a man out of you’ on a never ending loop, again, so they don’t have to think about health insurance deadlines, and they are rewarded by a slow-dripping stream coming from the pants of a passed out man on the other end of the N they waited so long for. meanwhile, 2.4 hours away, in a tiny wood, a minimal cabin provided by the wellness startup, ‘getaway,’ awaits the reservation of tired, millennial souls.

getaway does everything it can to create a convenient remedy to micro-inconveniences. with a handful of touches, one could open the website, choose their escape, reserve a cabin, sign up and fill out a payment method. those expecting a sanctuary from subway urine may find it; however, it should be noted, fellow millennial friends, that healing and balance are not achievable with $199, and a night without wifi. take care of those health insurance deadlines — getaway when you can, instead of escaping when you’d like to.

  • How will I ever afford or how can I figure out how to achieve such a tranquil and peaceful way to live. Im only 45 and living on disability…(I hate it! I would give anything if I could work again!) I clear an OK amount- because you get a tiny portion of what you put in… And I funded the government very well from age 20 to 40. However, having to pay for medications that only numb my symptoms & 8 minutes w/ a”doctor” so he can check off that my symptons are still numbed. I am left kind-of poor at the end of the day. My point is (from a low budget living person that dreams of making something again) these 200sf homes with high vault ceilings, big windows and cozy beds you must crawl into, These homes gleam with the helpfulness of affordability while gracfully mixed with breath taking beauty.
