How much is the retreat?

To accommodate as many people as possible, we’ve made a few options available:

Single private room $875 + HST (Up to 3 spots available)

Enjoy the full experience of the weekend retreat in the privacy of your own room and bed.

Shared room and bed with a friend $675 + HST (Up to 6 spots available)

Would you rather bunk with someone to save a few dollars? We get it. Book this option and be paired with another guest or request to room with a specific friend. Yes, you’ll be sharing a queen or king size bed.

Bunk bed mates $625 + HST (Up to 4 spots available)

Yup. This room has bunk beds and also a queen bed. If you share this room with up to 4 people, there are significant savings.


Can I reserve my spot with a deposit?

Yes! $100 deposit is all that’s needed to secure your place for the retreat! You’ll have until February 6th, 2019 to pay the remaining balance.

When do I need to pay the remaining balance?

The remaining balance is due on or before February 6th, 2019.  E-transfers are the best and preferred way to make future payments.

Why are the sleeping arrangements and costs all different?

Good question. We’ve secured a lovely cabin, similar to one you would book for a large family getaway. This means there are different types of rooms. If you’re open and willing to bunk in the same room as others, there are significant savings. We get that for some privacy is super important. That’s why we have a few rooms available for single occupancy. The more people we have, the more savings we can offer! But of course, that does come with some sacrifice when it comes to rooming.

Is this an all women’s retreat?

Yes. Based on the rooming availability, we are only accepting female participants for this event.

What if I have food preferences or allergies?

No problem. We’ll work with our personal cook to make sure you what you need to stay full all weekend long within your food guidelines.

Is the deposit refundable?

Unfortunately not. Your commitment is what will help us secure all of the details for this incredible weekend. Once a deposit is made we will not be able to refund.
