Berwin's 30th Birthday Retreat

Berwin's 30th Birthday Upstate Retreat


Hey friend.

So, as you may or may not know, I’m turning 30 on June 30th. Oy Vey! I’d love nothing more than to spend this milestone occasion with you!

I will be having a gathering in the city on my actual birthday weekend for anyone who is around but I’d like to cordially invite YOU to a little retreat in upstate NY the following weekend.

Here is the current plan / some of the details. I want to put the feelers out now to see if you’d be available and able to join so I can get the wheels in motion. I really hope you can make it!

Big Berwin Love!

My friend and NYC's #1 dermatologist, Dr Bobby Buka's farm is a beautiful adult playground and retreat from the city. Set in 40 acres of private woodland, surrounded by nature, the farm is home to a family of goats, alpacas, chickens, honey bees and occasionally a Great Dane called Basil. This place was created as a retreat from the craziness of the city, a haven for friends and family to enjoy. It's a sacred place to Bobby and he has graciously opened his home up to all of us to enjoy.

Food and Drink

You know me, I like my food. But I enjoy it the most when shared. The weekend will feature delicious foods and drinks which we will make and enjoy together. I will do a food shop before and we will be self sufficient for the weekend for all meals. Price per person will be dependent on the number of people that come and is tbd. And don't worry, if you have any allergies or dietary restrictions, they will all be accommodated. Don't want you going hungry!


To make things easy and cheaper for everyone, suggesting BYOB. I’ll have some supplies and be making some delicious drinks too but if anyone has a preferred tipple, they’re welcome to bring.

Getting there

Prana is located apx 2hrs by car or train from NYC. 

Closest train station is Rhienecliff about a 20min taxi / uber to the farm.

I'm probably going to rent a car for the weekend and head up early on Friday after I've done the food shop. If I have space in the car, I can take a couple people. 

If you have access to a car and can take people up on Friday afternoon after work, then let me know and you can car pool. #Roadtrip

Train tickets cost apx $30-$50 return from Penn Station. 

Last train on Saturday is 9pm from Rhienecliff

If you're planning on arriving by Unicorn, there is room in the stables.
Please let me know in advance if your Unicorn has any dietary restrictions.


Accomodation / Costs

We have available to us 5 lovely bedrooms in the main house to hunker down in which means that we can accommodate 10ppl total on Friday and Saturday night. That means that if you're not coming with a partner, you may be sharing a room / bed. #Sleepover

Oh yeah, money! That thing. Bobby does not run a charity. It's expensive to keep the farm running and someone has to look after the animals (that's Brandon the farm manager btw). I want to make this as easy and cost effective for everyone with no surprises. So I will lay it all out here. Just let me know what would work best for you and we will figure it out.

Cost for whole property, Friday 1pm - Sunday 1pm. $2,700. 

Max occupancy: 10ppl overnight (sharing bedrooms), up to 20ppl during the day. 

As I mentioned, food is going to be on top. Hoping to be no more than bout $50/60 per person


You share a room with 1 other for Friday / Saturday.
Cost $270pp total for 2 nights. Just think, put away $50per week between now an then and you'll cover the cost!


You can only make it one day / night but you still want to stay over. Depending on numbers, this might be an option. Price dependent on wether all rooms are taken but from $135-150pp/per night.

DAY TRIPPER: (Friday or Saturday)

I will have access to the property from 1pm on Friday until 1pm on Sunday. You could come and join in the fun on Saturday day and then head back last train on Saturday evening. Costs would be for food / drink, not accommodation. Cost TBD based on numbers. 


Let me know if you can make it
