Whatever you choose, be sure to know you’ll also have plenty of time to rest and relax in the tranquil, natural surroundings of Boone.

And our corner of the mountains overlooks 300+ acres of quiet forest, so you can enjoy the view and the silence.


Who is a Personal Retreat For?

A personal retreat is for everybody! That being said, a personal retreat or a group stay is ideal for people who want to create their own experience, combine different activities and explore. For people who want a guided experience to start or deepen a self-care or meditative practice, we recommend a program like the Happiness Retreat or an Ayurvedic cleanse.


*Certain activities like pottery classes and spa treatments have an additional cost.
