So what did we decide?
We have a new venue for the 2016 retreats!
If you were hoping for the lower price point of returning to Watson Homestead, please don’t despair… We have an option for you too!
There will be two separate retreats in the Spring and two separate retreats in the Fall!
The feedback from the survey brought to light that within our group, people are looking for very different things from the retreats. Also, our group is growing and we’ve consistently had a waiting list for each retreat over the past couple of years. Offering two retreats each season will not only allow for you to choose which package suits you best, but will also allow for more people to attend the retreats without us losing the personal connections that so often get lost as groups get too large.
The focus of this retreat is to make your weekend as easy and relaxing as possible. Meals and snacks are included in the your retreat package. Coffee, tea, water, and lemonade will be available all weekend. There is also a refrigerator and microwave in each guest room, so you are welcome to bring additional snacks and food as you please.
The focus of this retreat is on keeping the cost down as much as possible. Therefore, you will be on your own for meals and most snacks. A hot breakfast is served each morning, as well as occasional snacks at the front desk. Coffee, tea, water, and lemonade will be available all day. Each guest room has a refrigerator and a microwave. There are also good places to eat in the general area. Many are within walking distance, and some deliver as well.
Both retreats will offer luxurious overnight accommodations, as well as the same fun perks you are used to from previous retreats:
- goodie bags
- make n takes
- bingo prizes
- page contest
- mini store to shop from
- milestone gifts
I want to assure you all that making a move to a new venue is not something that I take lightly. I’ve poured my heart into this process and spent many, many hours researching places, contacting possible new venues, crunching numbers, and traveling to see the venues that seemed promising. While there are pros and cons to each location I visited, I think you will be happy when you see our new digs!
The location of the 2016 retreats will be revealed this week! Stay tuned!
