This retreat is for families, corporate, groups, and solo 

Although we are a fully functioning farm - with hay fields, tractors, horses, chickens, and goats… We are only 30 minutes from South Lake Tahoe and 45 minutes from Reno (international airport). We are a few miles away from Interstate 50, 80, and Hwy 395, so you get the convenience of modern life while staying on a dream farm oasis. 

We are on a 30-acre property with multiple gathering grounds that include a tipi, sweat, lodge, fire pit, immersion tub, arenas, obstacle courses, moguls, stargazing deck… And so many different activities abound in this area, including snow skiing, pontoon boating on the lake, crystal mountain - hunting for crystals, old ghost towns, Virginia City, and four-wheeling adventures… There is a plethora of activities!  We extend that if people wanted to stay beyond the four days of retreat content, our participant concierge can help create an amazing adventure vacation in America’s wild West!
