The Ultimate Writers Retreat Experience

The Ultimate Writers Retreat Experience Back to Programs »

The When Words Count Retreat operates year-round, and its two deluxe, four premium and three standard rooms can house 9 to 11 visiting writers at a time — and their guests. Typical stays run from a few days to several months. A private two-bedroom chalet, located on the property within easy walking distance of the main building, provides added seclusion. The Chalet is particularly well-suited for collaborators writing books, screenplays or other creative projects or for those who simply desire greater isolation during extended stays of three weeks or more.

As a guest at the writing retreat, you will enjoy:

  • A well-appointed room
  • Broadband, internet access
  • A private desk in your room, with a picturesque mountain view where you can gaze out at the mountains while writing your book
  • Access to additional work stations, located in common areas throughout the property
  • A standing invitation to join us, every other night, for lively hash sessions with fellow writers
  • On-demand access to our own team of book doctors and writing coaches
  • Delectable Vermont meals prepared, on premises, daily by Chef Aaron. These include a communal, country breakfast, a seated gourmet dinner, and a healthful farmhouse lunch spread at Noon
  • Free hors d’oeuvres served each day, during the cocktail hour
