Our Story

For women by women

We are here for YOU
We provide a space of rest and refuge for ALL women.
Retreat in the Pines was intentionally created as a safe space for women to renew and heal. We deliberately host "women only" retreats and keep our retreat size small, so YOU can find exactly what you need; whether it's connection, inspiration or self-discovery.

Our community is made up of guests who retreat with us, as well as those who are passionate about our mission. We invite you to view our exclusive opportunities: apply for retreat assistance, donate to our scholarship fund, arrange for a one-on-one consultation and more. We are women supporting women - please join us.

What we believe in

Community

We have created an extended community of inspiring women who support and encourage each other. We simply provide a safe and sacred space for conversations and laughter. The healing comes in those moments of connection as guests gather around our community dining table. Guests stay connected over social media, lunch dates, girls nights out and in some cases, come back to a retreat together.

Equality

We believe ALL women have the right to enjoy a quality retreat experience, regardless of their background, age, ethnicity, fitness level or income. We intentionally keep our prices reasonable. Our Retreat Assistance program is for women who are facing financial challenges and need assistance paying for a retreat.

Authenticity

We allow our guests to be un-apologetically themselves at every step of the retreat. There's no need to wear make up. Sharing is encouraged. Tears are welcome. Each member of our team has been chosen for her empathy and compassion, as well as her willingness to show up as her authentic self.

Sustainability

We reduce, recycle, re-use as much as we can. Our seasonal retreat menus are created to minimize food waste. We freeze leftover veggies to make veggie broth. We freeze rice to add to soups. We compost table scraps, coffee filters, vegetable peelings and more. We shop local for produce, chickens and eggs and grow our own herbs. We believe in conserving our planet's resources - using rain barrels to water our garden and asking guests to be conscientious about their energy and water consumption. We support economic sustainability by paying all of our staff a living wage.

We Give Back

We create empowerment not only in our retreat space, but by giving to local and national non-profits that support women. By joining us for a retreat, not only are you embodying change, you are also making a difference in the lives of other women. We welcome suggestions for giving opportunities, contact us.
