What We Love

Woodside artfully orchestrates your connection to nature, to others and to yourself. Wake in a glass-clad treehouse, spend the day in expertly curated experiences and inspiring rituals scheduled to natural rhythms. Or, just be, nourished by the calm of the forest. Beyond a respite from daily routine, Woodside reimagines the concept of a weekend retreat. It’s a time for new experiences, self-care and personal growth. Take an invigorating hike among Northern California’s towering redwoods. Try cycling or join a yoga session. Sink into a sea salt massage. Share a healthy meal with newfound friends. Attend mind-body workshops. Find clarity during moments of quiet reflection. It’s your personal retreat, a chance to be yourself and rediscover who really matters. Hint: it's you!Discover a back-to-nature, back-to-self experience at Canyon Ranch Woodside.

The experience at Woodside is distilled into an intimate, immersive wellness retreat, thoughtfully orchestrated to make the best use of the space and your time. The format is geared to those seeking to escape the grind, jumpstart new rituals, find solitude or connection, fight burnout or rekindle well-being. Choose a Personal Discovery pathway or self-guided exploration to lead the way. A daily schedule of activities and options is timed to circadian rhythms. Innovative and nutritious local food is included. And the breathtaking outdoor immersion brings mind, body and spirit back into balance.

The goal is to not just help you see your surroundings, but truly connect with the natural beauty of Northern California. Start with a morning fitness workout in the forest, where you can tackle the ropes course and climbing walls and hike leaf-padded trails in the shadow of towering redwoods. Play a sound bowl in a fairy ring of trees, followed by a workshop on forest bathing. Learn how to preserve the season’s bounty during a class with the chef on canning and pickling. Or gather with friends around the outdoor fire pit for a winemaker-led tasting of organic wines—the perfect way to wind down.

Culinary Highlights

Working with regenerative farmers and ranchers to source the highest quality, locally raised, grown and gathered ingredients creates an experience to nourish the body, the senses and the planet. Nearby Bay Area farms, makers and artisans are a source of constant inspiration, season over season, and Woodside is proud to offer collaborative educational opportunities. Chef Isabelle presents meals driven by wellness philosophies including root-to-stem use of vegetables and fruits, meat raised by humane animal husbandry practices, and ingredients and beverages that respect and do not strain the region’s natural resources. The goal is to maintain a healthy balance with nature's bounty.
