OlioHouse | Weekend Getaway

None at OlioHouse | Wassaic, NY

Sat, Jun 15 at 1 p.m.   |   90 minutes

We want OlioHouse to be a clubhouse for scenius members who want to slow down and break away from the New York City energy for a bit.

About the stay

This will be a free weekend at OlioHouse for scenius members who want to slow down and break away from the New York City energy for a bit.

There won't be any Olios going on and you can spend your day however you'd like. There will likely be a handful of other Olio members up at the same time working on creative projects, reading in a nook in the library, cooking dinner, or walking to the swimming hole. There is plenty of space to sneak off on your own so it's up to you whether you go chat by the bonfire or get some much-needed alone time.

Bring some food and we can all cook together or you can go eat at The Lantern nearby!

Location details

We are a little less than a 2 and a half hour train ride from Grand Central. You can take the Harlem Line of the MetroNorth to Wassaic, NY and it will cost 19.50 each way. We are a short walk from the train station but depending on the weather we will come to meet you there on foot or in a car.

If you'd rather drive it is about a 2-hour trip and we have room for parking.

Additional information

Reach out to [email protected] with any questions about your stay. If you'd like to come up for a date that is not available on our calendar or stay longer, just let us know and maybe we can make it work. We'd love to have you!

What is Think Olio?

Think Olio is here to put the liberation back into the liberal arts.

Classically, the liberal arts, were the education considered essential for a free person to take an active part in civic life. To counter a humanities that has been institutionalized and dehumanized we infuse critical thinking, openness, playfulness, and compassion into our learning experience.

Read more about our mission, our story, and how we are doing this.

Scenius Membership

If Friday night lectures, museum field trips, and living room salons sound like your kind of thing, then you've found your people. We can't wait to welcome you to the Think Olio Scenius. More info
