Are you an individual traveler or small group looking to get away from it all and retreat to Sky Meadow? While we primarily rent out our space to large groups, we occasionally offer dates for individuals to enjoy self-guided solo retreats in Vermont. Whether you’re looking for a tranquil place to get some serious writing done, spend the weekend outdoors, or focus on rest and meditation, our self-guided solo retreats at Sky Meadow are offered with you in mind. We provide the space, and the rest is completely up to you!
When you book a solo retreat, you will enjoy private accommodations while sharing our communal and outdoor spaces with other solo retreat guests. Here’s what you can expect as part of your booking:
- A private room in the Retreat Barn, or a private cabin of your preference (first come, first served). Please note that the outbuildings and cabins are not insulated for all-season use and are only available during the months of June-September.
- Communal access to our fully equipped kitchen and 3 shared bathrooms, all located in the Retreat Barn.
- Communal access to all indoor and outdoor hangout spaces such as the yoga floor, dining area, coffee/tea bar, woodstove, dance pavilion, hilltop meditation gazebo, firepits, swimming ponds and forest trails.
- Check-in on your first day anytime 2pm or later. Check-out on your last day no later than 2pm.
- We ask that you sign our Participation Agreement, honor our house rules and check-out procedures, and generally behave with respect towards other solo retreatants sharing the space with you. We especially ask that you be mindful of noise, as fellow guests may be engaged in silent retreat, focused creative work or deep meditation.
- Sky Meadow’s on-site caretakers, Brendan and Erin, will be available should you need anything during your stay.
- To preserve a tranquil community atmosphere, solo retreat dates are limited to no more than 12 retreatants at a time.
