The Cabin

If you are interested in a cute, private, one-bedroom cabin all to yourself (max of 4 people) - feel free to inquire with us. We did not reserve the cabin, but we could look into it for you. We believe it would be approximately $700 + General Admission to rent the cabin and take part in the retreat.

The Cabin is a short walk to the Main lodge: located directly on the shoreline of Third Lake. Enjoy your privacy and a very short walk to meals, classes, workshops, and more.

Cabin features

Quaint, lakeside cabin, steps from sandy beach, has a large private deck at the water’s edge to enjoy the beautiful views. One bedroom plus a loft. Full kitchen with breakfast bar, separate dining area, plus a cozy living room and an outdoor fire pit.
