In a secluded area of New York’s Catskills Mountains, there’s a small campsite that promises a full escape. The woods seem to continue forever in all directions, and aside from the occasional hiker, there’s no one to be seen. For the visitors who are here, a few tiny-home cabins offer just the bare necessities.

It’s an attractive spot for nature lovers, and perhaps even more so for visitors from New York City, with their reputation for fast-paced, overstressed lifestyles. That’s exactly what Getaway, the startup behind this campsite, wants to help them with.
