IT’s YOUR LIFE!
We believe there should be a place where people can go to refresh themselves, rejuvenate or maybe a full on re purpose…….often it takes a revelation to have a revolution!…. Life can get a bit complicated as we try to meet the daily demands of work, family and play…. sometimes we just need a debriefing from life…or
maybe you need to reinvent yourself somewhere else- moving to a new place can be daunting but a little time spent there getting familiar with the area might be just the push you need to make the move!
We provide the environment to those seeking time, space, and support for the creation of a new and better you!
Greetings…I am JoAnn a lifelong serial entrepreneur and creator of extraordinary ideas. I have been involved in numerous start-ups and I believe in endless possibilities. My history is revolved around being an artist, designer, merchandiser, life coach, a coffee snob, small business consultant, a gardener with an admitted compulsion for natural intuitive healing and a spiritual connection with the earth. I am here to remind you that life is a journey of constantly creating, live with intention..believe in the unbelievable!….Let the journey continue..
I created the Retreat Trilogy as a spin off of our Artist Residency Program. As creators often we hit roadblocks, get stagnate, or just need to renew our vision. Residency programs enable this creative exploration, concentrated work, and artistic exchange in an inspiring and supportive environment. What I became acutely aware of as I began to speak to locals at my coffeehouse was that they too often felt that sense of being trapped and blocked. They come in with computer in hand and pound away hour after hour at a job that once was their dream and now after promotions and pay raises their corporate endeavors seemed futile. They gasped at the idea of reinvention but powerless to move through the process to know how does one goes about CHANGE in the FAST LANE??

Our Retreat Trilogy….our homestead is the perfect setting.

Your accommodations will be one of two unique dwellings located on the property,
The Farm Studio is just a short walk down from the main house and was formerly JoAnn’s Art studio. The Studio has French doors that overlook the meadow and it has its own private fire pit and outdoor bathroom complete with shower and claw foot tub. It was originally built in the 30’s as the homestead barn and after some serious re-purposing today it stands as a testament of possibilities. The remake of the barn centered on windows that looked in every direction, the windows were then draped with beautiful custom shades that Rick designed in his photography studio also located on the property. The interior is comfy and spacious. The main room has a small sitting area, queen size bed and small kitchenette. The inside bathroom has a glass shower with a compost toilet.There is another small room with a twin bed and writing table perfect for your creative endeavors while staying here!
