Planning the perfect retreat can feel overwhelming at first, but once you make some basic decisions you should be well on your way to success. The best place for a retreat is going to depend on what is most important to you for the type of retreat you want to attend. This post will help you to define what you are looking for so that you can begin your search. Some things to consider are the location, landscape, and property size. Each of these factors will impact the overall sucess of your retreat. Once you have decided what is most important to you, the best way to find a location for your retreat is to browse our retreat directory by retreat type, location, property size/type, or landscape.
Retreat Type – The first decision that needs to be made is what type of retreat you are interested in. This is challenging because there are so many wonderful retreats types to choose from! Who wouldn’t love to spend a relaxing weekend away from their day-to-day stresses? Or a romantic getaway with their most favorite loved one? But maybe it’s time for you to focus on being your best you through a health and wellness retreat or weight loss retreat? And some of you are here because you are in charge of planning your next family reunion or business retreat. Whatever your needs are, you can search over 15 different retreat types in our directory.
Location – Do you need something close to home, or are you interested in a destination retreat? Do you already have a location (state or region) in mind? Will you be flying or driving? If you are flying, will you need/want a rental car? How far are you willing to travel by car? If you are flexible on the answers to these questions then you can choose from a wider selection of properties. If you know where the location needs to be then you can browse for retreats by state, region, or interactive map.
Property Size and Type – Another thing to consider is the property size and type. Each property will provide a unique ambience that contributes to the overall experience you will have. Bed and Breakfasts will provide smaller, more intimate settings with a personal touch, whereas hotels and resorts will feel larger and less personal. If you have a large group attending the retreat, a ranch is the perfect place to get together. Some properties provide private cabins or casitas which are perfect for romantic, outdoor adventure, or writing retreats. We have properties that provide accommodations for one and properties that can host large groups.
Landscape – If you are looking for outdoor adventure, the mountains or lakes are a great place to visit. If you want to feel relaxed and rejuvenated, oceanside retreats provide the soothing sound of waves on the shore. If you are stuck in the middle of winter and are tired of the frozen tundra, a desert retreat will provide some much needed warmth and sunshine. If you want to escape the city for a few days, check out the small town retreats for a quaint and peaceful retreat. If you live in the country and want to experience the excitement of the city, try browsing the big city retreats where you can find plenty of dining, entertainment, and shopping options.
