About Green Mountain at Fox Run

Green Mountain at Fox Run has been named one of the "Top 10 Spas for Weight Loss" in the Spafinder Wellness 365 Readers' Choice Awards for 10 consecutive years. Since opening more than 40 years ago, Green Mountain has refined a full-immersion weight-loss program and retreat exclusively for women who wish to achieve health and a healthy weight without dieting.

At the heart of the program are behavioral classes that help women explore and address the thoughts and attitudes that shape their relationships to food, their bodies, and themselves. An array of exercise classes accommodates all levels of fitness and mobility. The nutrition program, a 2013 Spafinder Wellness 365 Readers’ Choice Award winner, helps women relearn and practice normal eating behaviors with an emphasis on intuitive eating.

The staff is led by behavioral therapists, registered dietitians, exercise physiologists, and mindfulness/stress-reduction experts in an intimate community.

Nestled in Vermont's Green Mountains, the serene retreat near Okemo Mountain Resort offers awe-inspiring views and miles of walking trails.

You are worth it!
Green Mountain at Fox Run is an amazing healthy retreat for women! They helped me with mindful eating, nutrition, eating normal again, and finding FUN ways to exercise at my fitness level! The support from all of the teachers, coaches, and women are fantastic. If you are interested in booking a stay here please send me a message at faeythe13@msn.com, I have some credit I can transfer to someone. Live Healthy!

A Place to Rediscover Yourself
I spent 4 weeks at GM in 2011. I have a suffered with disordered eating patterns for many years and GM helped me reset my view of myself, my health and food. I had a session with Darla, which was the ultimate gift to myself! This is not a traditional spa, so don't expect swanky accommodations and food, but if you are looking for a comfortable place to escape to where you can refocus on yourself, GM is it!

Not a Traditional "SPA"
I've spent a total of 8 weeks at Green Mountain at Fox Run. I was 18 when I went for my first 4 weeks and 20 my second 4-week trip. The services for college-aged women are invaluable. Everyday is scheduled with exercise, nutrition, and behavioral classes. I have struggled with an eating disorder since 16 and the tools I learned at Green Mountain jumpstarted my recovery and still keep me grounded today. I value the behavioral classes above all else. They are what set green mountain apart from any other health retreat. Don't expect a traditional "SPA" as Green Mountain is far from it. Exercise instead of facials. Nutrition classes instead of manicures/pedicures and behavior modification instead of antioxidant body peels.

Facilities & Amenities

More than a spa or a place for pampering, Green Mountain at Fox Run offers a comprehensive weight-loss program benefiting from four decades of experience understanding and working with women's specific weight-loss and health needs. The retreat's program features workshops in which modern research on fitness, behavioral, metabolism, and nutritional components is introduced and skilled professionals in the fields of nutrition, exercise physiology, psychology, and stress management guide guests; sleep classes, cooking lessons, wellness coaching, and metabolic assessments are among the options available. During their time at Green Mountain, participants begin to identify their personal obstacles to long-term weight-loss success, plus, develop and practice new behaviors, strategies, and techniques designed to extend beyond their time at Green Mountain.


Two on-site exercise studios host a bevy of workout classes that aim to accommodate all levels of mobility and fitness. Personal training is also available, and guests are welcome to trek the 10 miles of walking trails that wind throughout the property’s 26 wooded acres.
