Wellness & Good Food immersed in Nature
Everything at Well Being Retreat Center supports health and wellness: wellness of body, wellness of mind, and, of course, wellness of spirit. The land is quiet enough that you can hear a deer rustling from across the river, or an owl calling from a mile away, or hear the breeze in the trees. The earth-sheltered cabins are low EMF and the beds are very comfortable. Meals are fresh, flavorful, gluten-free and healthy. More information of Retreat Meals here.
