Blue Ridge Retreat

With 265 acres on the property, you will find space to wander. And with 10,000 square feet of living space, you will find your own spot to write. This retreat features plenty of time to work, scrumptious meals from our private chef, guided meditation, and two excursions: Tails Creek Mountain hiking excursion and a downtown Blue Ridge shopping and dinner excursion. But the thing our guests say is the best thing they walk away with is the friendships and connections they make with other writers. If you've dreamed of surrounding yourself with other creatives in the pursuit of the mighty novel (or memoir), do yourself a favor and book the Blue Ridge Retreat so you can make it a priority. REGISTRATION IS OPEN.

Please enjoy our slideshow from the 2023 Blue Ridge Retreat.

Our all-inclusive retreat will take place in Ellijay, GA on a 265 acre property with two cabins, The Lodge, with 8 rooms, and the Bunkhouse with two rooms. Each of the three floors of the Lodge has its own living area with wet bar.  The expansive wraparound porch has so much cozy seating you can pick a different view each day.


Most rooms have desks in them, but not to worry, there are no less than eight tables in the public spaces, so each writer can find a spot to work. There are miles of hiking trails right on the property with pavilions and benches for when inspiration hits and you want to capture a thought.

See sample highlights of each day in the slideshow below. Activities are always optional (we see you introverts).
