What we're about

This is a group for adventurous women who are interested in exploring the Great Smokey’s for a 5 night 4 day private women' retreat. The retreat is held at Dreaming Bear Lodge (DBL) located in Bryson City, NC. DBL provides a place to come for restoration, renewal and recovery. The peace and power of DBL is felt immediately both inside and out, upon stepping onto the property.

I am the Owner and Operator of DBL. I know the lay of the land and will be your facilitator and Wilderness Guide, from pontoon boat tours on Lake Fontana, horseback riding on the trails of the Great Smokey’s , rafting on the Nantahala River, mountain trail hiking through the National park, or visiting well known sites in the surrounding areas. When we are not on the move, you can just relax on the observation deck, watching hawks and eagles dip and dive, with the Great Smoky National Park as your backdrop or lay on the hammock for sky-gazing and just relax and breath.

Be it Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, the rustic beauty of Dreaming Bear Lodge during each unique season makes her ideal for any time of year, depending on your needs. You will experience lovely blooming flowers in the spring and summer, all the vibrant foliage of the autumn or the snow-capped landscape of a winter wonderland.

I hold 4 seasonal private retreats a year that accommodate just 4 women on each retreat. I believe in small intimate groups so we can share our time and stories while settling into ourselves. We will have several meet ups prior to our retreat so we all get to know each other. The next retreat is scheduled for October 26th, - October 31st.

If you are interested, please contact me for pricing and details.
