Sanity in spa form?

I'll be wrapping up a stressful period of work and have a long weekend coming up. I'd like to find a spa, or hotel with spa within 4-5 hours radius of NYC to just veg.

Our major event wraps this week and after way too many 12-16 hour days, I'm escaping for a long weekend. I just want some quiet and to get away so I'm ruling out the umpteen million day spas in NYC.
Ideally, no flight required because I don't want the hassle of air travel to take away from relaxing. I love trains so anything on Amtrak and/or Metro North would be fine, but I don't know where to start. I'll fly if there's somewhere wow and airfare isn't ridiculous.
I don't have a car but could rent one for the weekend for the right place.
Spa not exactly a necessity, but I equate it with lots of relaxing places so that's where I'm starting my search. Just want somewhere I can veg and enjoy the scenery or light things to do. Quiet would be nice. Can be either B&B type or corporate hotel (I love the spas at Westins and Ws, for example), but didn't see any in enticing locations for next weekend. Less about the place being exciting, but I don't want to go to another large city.
Considered and ruled out:
- Buttermilk Falls Inn - gorgeous, no availability
- Mohonk Mountain House - way out of my price range. I have some money to treat/spoil myself but not to the tune of $528/night.
Any suggestions/ experiences / ideas? Thanks!
