“It has been a privilege to run New Life Hiking Spa for the past 35 years and share the beauty of the Green Mountains and a healthy lifestyle with guests from around the world. I am humbled by the amount of return guests we are fortunate to have (40%) and the distance they travel to come to New Life Hiking Spa. It has been an incredible journey running New Life,” stated Mr. LeSage.
