Does a 2 night getaway to our local mountains where you can hike, relax, enjoy wonderful meals, and social time sound good to you? Join me for the most reasonably priced weekend getaway you can find! Just $130 for an entire weekend retreat!
We will meet on Friday evening at Camp deBenneville Pines in Angelus Oaks , check into our cabins and meet our roommates. Rooms are quaint bunk bed style with shared bathrooms - nothing luxurious - but stepping outside into the forest is what makes it all worthwhile! The camp is a sprawling grounds under the pines with well kept cabins and pathways, hiking trails and a lake nearby.
In the evening we will enjoy a delicious meal together (vegetarian/vegan/gluten free options are available), cooked by the friendly camp staff in the “Lodge”. Coffee, tea, spring water and hot chocolate are available throughout the evening and the rest of your stay. In the evening we will enjoy each other’s company by the fire and maybe play a few games if anyone has an interest.
On Saturday we will enjoy waking up to the crisp mountain air and the sounds of the birds and silence. The camp staff will prepare a delicious breakfast with light or hearty options for us, and send us along our way with sack lunches to bring on our hike. After breakfast we will gear up for a beautiful hike in the mountains behind camp (approximately 7 miles) - taking a moderate pace - and stopping often to enjoy the views and to eat lunch before returning to camp. Once back at camp, I will offer a session of self-massage and stretching for our hard working feet and legs, and a hot tub is available to sooth our tired muscles. We will enjoy another delicious dinner and time together or alone during the evening.
Sunday we will rise at a leisurely pace and be treated to yet another wonderful breakfast. Afterwards we will take off for a walk to nearby Jenks Lake. After walking around the lake and spending time enjoying the area, we will return to camp for lunch and then be on our way down the mountain and back home feeling energized and relaxed all at the same time!
Come with friends or come alone! I promise that you will feel welcome and a part of the group. This will probably be a small group of us (I’m hoping about 20) and we will be sharing the camp grounds with another somewhat larger woman’s retreat group.
