Retreat for Artists & Writers


Need to recharge your batteries? Want to finish that writing project? Need to get started on your next creative endeavor? Find the peace and quiet you need to focus on and get some great work done at Still Waters. Enjoy solitude or swap ideas over delicious home-cooked meals with other creatives at this Writer’s Weekend in Connecticut’s beautiful “Quiet Corner.” You will have your own room and are welcome to use common spaces, decks, and the great outdoors for inspiration. Take an early winter hike, meditate or stretch in the yoga studio, and ponder your creative pursuits around the bonfire.

This is at an all-inclusive rate of $375 per participant single occupancy. If you want to bring a friend or partner to share your bedroom, you'll each save $25.  Email Amy@stillwaterspond.com to receive this special.

If you are a yoga teacher and would like to teach two classes during this retreat, save $50 off your stay.  Limited to first yoga teacher (must be certified and insured). Email Amy@stillwaterspond.com to receive this special.
