Cabin for October 2017 retreat

Cabins for October 2017 retreat

Announcing my first-ever retreat:
Make Peace with Yourself!

We’re retreating to the river, in scenic Murphy, NC, just in time for fall. Will you join us?

Dates: Friday, October 13 (evening arrivals) – Sunday, October 15 (afternoon departure)
NOTE: You may choose to stay an extra night, leaving Monday morning, if you choose; this will be unstructured free time.

Location: Murphy, NC

Our two-cabin property offers terrific amenities, great views, and a very affordable retreat location.

Your cost will depend on the accommodation you choose and in which cabin (price includes lodging + food for the whole weekend — NOT per night):

Trout Chalet Tranquil Chalet
1 queen bedroom: $325 solo / $200 shared 1 queen bedroom: $325 solo / $200 shared
2 twins in a bedroom: $225 each 21 twin beds (one bed, one trundle) in loft: $175 each

** NOTE: For those feeling especially adventurous, you can use one of the two-person pup tents to sleep under the stars. This option is a cool $100 total (mostly for food). Bring your own tent for $75 (food).

All meals from dinner Friday through Sunday lunch are included. Those staying Sunday evening can forage for leftovers or sample restaurants available nearby. Menus will include build-your-own pizzas, build-your-own salads, both hot + cold breakfasts, veggies, fruit, desserts, water, juices, and soda/La Croix. Please BYOB if you wish to drink adult beverages.

A $100 deposit will hold your spot, and beds will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Balances are due September 25. Cancel by September 1 to receive your deposit back; no deposits will be refunded after that date.

  • Comfortable clothes for yoga, hiking, chatting
  • An extra bath or beach towel
  • Any adult beverages you might want to partake of
