Our Retreat Center
Nestled on 30 acres of peace, serenity, and East Texas pine trees, Retreat in the Pines is the ideal spot for retreating away from the busyness of everyday life. A short two hour drive from Dallas, we are located in Mineola, Texas, just north of Tyler. The property is secluded yet still close to antique stores, restaurants, art galleries, wineries and outdoor recreational activities.
Indoor, our amenites include a great room with a large stone fireplace as the centerpiece, perfect for gathering around with friends. Both of the houses are charmingly decorated with ample space for visiting and relaxing. We can sleep up to 18 in our shared bedrooms, which offer twin beds with comfortable mattresses and pillows. We offer wi-fi in the main house.
Our outdoor amenities include a large outdoor fire circle with seating, several hammocks and an outdoor yoga deck surrounded by trees, where we close every retreat with a Gratitude Meditation. Our serene, light-filled indoor yoga studio opens onto the serenity deck on the second floor of the guest house. We have several porches with seating looking out on nature.
Coming in 2017, our 850 square foot Dining Hall and Kitchen with spectacular views of nature in every direction. Our head chef, Kaycee Turner, will be offering hands- on cooking classes where you can enjoy wine and tasting as you learn her cooking secrets. Cooking classes are only offered at select retreats.
