4a Join us November 9th to 13th for our women-only retreat on our private 1000-acre ranch, on the banks of the San Saba River, under a big, starry Texas sky! Our ranch was featured in Travel and Leisure as one of their "Best Picks" for 2021!
We'll hike the granite dome of Enchanted Rock, see (and hike) the only fall foliage in Texas; the stunning reds and golds of Lost Maples State Park; we have 8 miles of private hiking trails on our ranch, wildlife, and a cave if you're "down" for it, hayrides and kayaking on the San Saba. Plus, catered dinners, breakfasts, lunches out (or packed), and dinner and music in Fredericksburg.
My kids couldn't believe I was going on this trip "Mom what are you thinking? You don't even know these people" what I was thinking is this sounds like a blast, and it was!
I wouldn't have been able to keep up and do everything we did if we hadn't had the Virtual Training Plan and the calls - this made all the difference for me! Brillant and I felt comfortable and prepared when I arrived. Thank you!JoAnn
Sign me up for the next Retreat, I don't care where we're going The Smoky Mountian Retreat in 2021 changed my life. Knowing that I was going gave me something to train for, and I needed that push.
But, doing everything we did on the trip is what really changed me. I did hikes I wouldn't have tried on my own and guess what? I sailed through them and felt amazing. Add to that all the laughter, camaraderie, and just flat-out fun I want to be first in line for whatever is next!! )Anne
