“We knew when Ms. Dyson sent in her application that she had great potential. By the time her junior year rolled around, we knew we had an artist on our hands who could capture the true magic in people’s souls that they rarely let the world see. We’ve had Cat back on several occasions for workshops and intersession classes. She’s grown amazingly as a photographer!”
Tom Anderson, CEO, Anderson Realty Company
“By the time I talked to Cat Dyson, I was a complete wreck. I’d spent good money on several photographers before her, who took the same tired photos I was trying to replace on our website and marketing materials. Cat took the time to get to know each and every person in our office, going above and beyond to capture their true spirit in some fabulous photographs that sold our brand.”
Irene Stedler, Mother of the Groom
“Cat really did an amazing job of getting inside Josh’s comfort zone and capturing his personality. A shy guy, he doesn’t let people in easily, so when a friend recommended Blue Moon Photography, I was skeptical at first. We started with engagement photos and were completely blown away by the results. The wedding photos she took touched on magical, the way they captured the love between Sharon and Josh.”
Carly, Noushin is a wonderful host

Noushin is a wonderful host — perfect amount of communication and instructions to begin enjoying ourselves right away. The home is clean and comfort filled with positive energy, and we immediately felt at home. The amenities are out of this world as well as the backyard and solar room with sunshine hitting perfeftly. Anything you need, Noushin has thought of! You certainly feel as though you are staying in someone’s house versus a rental (in the most positive way). Highly recommend staying more than two days if you can — we were so comfortable and you will definitely not want to leave that soon!
Becki, The Prana Spa is even more…

The Prana Spa is even more beautiful than expected. Pictures could never capture the unique architecture and beauty of this home. For all of it’s gorgeousness, it’s still really homey. The owner is such a pleasure to speak with. We were greeted with tea and a wonderful tour of the house where we learned all about the history and incredible architecture. Prana Spa is both cozy and relaxing, which is not always easy to find. If I had one word to sum up this experience, it would be simply wonderful.

The Prana Residence Spa was exactly what we were looking for! A special and very interesting home with a wonderful indoor pool, outdoor whirlpool, a terrific interior, and a well-stocked kitchen. We had an awesome time and delighted to find that it was even bigger inside than it looked in the photos. Noushin was also a lovely and accommodating host!

My family and I very much enjoyed staying at the house. It was very clean, comfortable and so unusual. The indoor heated pool was a delight, as the kids (including my 7 month old baby) could enjoy the water for much longer than they normally can with cooler, outdoor pools. They loved their pool sessions and slept like rocks after all that activity. Oh, the outdoor hot tub was nice too, for the adults.

A place of 3 Rs: Relaxation, Romance and Rebirth! This well-published house is just amazing! My husband, our 9-year-old son and I enjoyed ourselves tremendously this weekend by being here. Every house has its own spirit and energy, which I am more and more aware of. Once we entered the door of this house, we felt the energy of deep tranquility and serenity. The house and the environment brought us to tranquility away from busy and noisy New York City. In addition, the sauna, indoor swimming pool and outdoor hot tub rejuvenated us. The spa facilities are additional tools for you to feel that you are a star in your own romantic movie and you can write your own script, especially when you are in the hot hub counting the stars in the clear blue sky. “Prana”, the name of the house, just speaks to the soul of the house–force of life. We immersed ourselves in the spirit of mindfulness and meditation. We also felt the strong transforming force and vivid life through our inner power. The opposite of life is not death, but lack of love. Through the beautiful selection of art work and simple yet soulful decor, the owner not only shares her physical place, but also shares her love for people. We love the house for many reasons and can only say that you will never experience that much joy and tranquility anywhere else.

This place is very different than any other place I’ve stayed in through out the world! You feel like you’ve been taken to another space in time!! My second time here. Relaxing and getting away from it all. It’s like being in a private resort of your own! Took a dip in the out door hot tub was so wonderful and relaxing, the ultimate feeling of being One with the nature! I defenitely recommend the experience at least once, but I am sure you will want to keep coming back here again!!

I spent a once-in-a-lifetime weekend at the Prana Residence Spa with my girlfriend. Love was in the air from the moment we arrived. We brought food with us which we prepared in the well-equipped kitchen. There is even a NutriBullet shake maker for healthy treats. It was extremely romantic to prepare the food together. Dining options include the kitchen counter, glass round table in the living room and glass round table in the enclosed sun room. Because this residence is far from neighbor houses we can freely move around in any attire. The curved walls make you feel you are in gigantic eggshell shielded from the disturbance of outside world, ready to rejuvenate. The master bedroom has a queen size bed with excellent mattress for sleeping and romantic activities. Behind the bed is a Jacuzzi bath. Behind the Jacuzzi, bathroom area with toilette without separating wall. If you are squeamish about using the toilette in front of your partner, two other bathrooms are available. There is also an outdoor Jacuzzi on the outside deck accessible from the indoor pool with a short walk which may feel very long if you go in the winter cold. We had an early spring snowfall which helped with the wonder romance experience in the Jacuzzi. We continued the water miracle with swimming in the heated pool. The romance continued in the sauna which has a cold dip pool next to it. To top it off there is a double shower at the entrance of the pool which spells love & romance. The property is very serene for walking and listening to birds. There is also an incredible trail on the shore of the nearby Housatonic River.

Perfect house for a perfect vacation. Just as described the house is amazing. Peace and quite around, the heated pool was just what my 7mo baby needed and the outdoor hot tub was just what the adults needed after sunset. Everything was provided , from towels, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, plates, forks…etc. you just need to bring yourself and you will emerge in a relaxing atmosphere. If this would be a hotel I would give 10 stars. Noushin is a lovely lady that really cares about your comfort. Definitely will visit again.

We had a great time staying at Prana Residence Spa. The place was exactly like the photos show and it was a great escape for the long weekend in February.The weekend we went was exceptionally cold for that time of year but we didn’t notice at all. The fireplace inside kept us warm and the sauna, pool and hot tub were perfect way to relax while we were cooped up inside.
The house itself is very unique with a lot of character. It was fun to slowly uncover its personality (and the host’s) over the three days we were there. The place is also well stocked. There are lots of plates, multiple sizes of bowls, all kinds of different glasses, knives, serving dishes .. You could go there and throw a very classy dinner party.
The town of Kent is close by (around 15mins drive) and people are generally very friendly, always ready to chat and help out. The town has a few art galleries and interesting shops as well as a grocery store where we did most of our shopping.
Overall we had a great time at the Spa. It was a unique experience and we would definitely come again, in the summer or again in the winter.
