Off the Grid in Montana

October 3 @ 1:00 pm - October 7 @ 1:00 pm

Montana Retreat
Adventure awaits for those ready to really get away.
Stunning setting nestled in the Beartooth Range, situated right on the Boulder river. Each day is yours to claim – Whether it’s glorious hiking, moose watching (fingers crossed), or lounging on the patio overlooking the river with a G&T in hand. The fall colors are right out of ‘ A River Runs Through It’ (which was filmed nearby lower on the mountain.)
No internet service is available (seriously, you need this!) unless you have a satellite service. Rustic cabins with running water (full bathrooms with shower), heated by fireplace and potbelly stoves. Shared accommodations across three cabins with king & queen & full beds (one private cabin with a full living/kitchen/bath and bedroom is available – great for a couple or friends.) There is a landline phone.
Our on-site mountain man will teach you to build a proper fire, cook pancakes outside with bacon on the grill, how to cast a fly rod and then grill up that fresh catch.
It’s the most exciting, relaxing, beautiful, adventurous thing you’ll do in years. You owe it to yourself to Get Off the Grid!

We’ll have group activities each day that you can partake in. Or you can sit by the fire and read a book, go for a simple walk or an intense hike, polar plunge in the glacial water of the Boulder River, try your hand at fly fishing or work on a jigsaw puzzle. The adventure is what you make it!

Here’s a little snippet of last year:

Here’s what a few of our previous guests said:
“…take a wellness break in a beautiful, natural setting”: 
“This experience was my first trip to Montana and I can’t wait to go back!  Getting into the mountains was just the break I needed to refocus on my health and relaxation. Monique is a wonderful host who welcomed us into her family’s charming cabins located within the most gorgeous national park. Morning walks, fly fishing, hikes, and cooking lessons were coupled with down time for books, cards and puzzles. Breakfast from the grill, healthy meals and snacks, and cocktail hour with mountain views made you feel like you were at sleep-away camp for adults! I would recommend the Montana trip without hesitation for anyone looking to take a wellness break in a beautiful, natural setting.”
-Carrie J
“It was a great way to disconnect and recharge my batteries”:
“Montana is one of the most beautiful place I’ve ever visited! The rustic quarters were quaint and comfortable and the environment Monique created was so unique and special. I experienced so many firsts, from learning to fly fish and building a proper fire to seeing gentle moose in the wild. We hiked, saw wildlife, dipped our feet in the river with a GnT in hand and completely relaxed. It was a great way to disconnect and recharge my batteries!”

This isn’t a hard, itinerary-driven retreat. Wellness comes in many forms and we are creating an opportunity for you to embrace the time you need to rejuvenate and heal. There are lots of trails that offer stunning views if you are ready for a solid hike, but there’s so much to see without even getting on a trail.

Is there running water? Yes

Is there electricity? Yes

Is there internet? NO!  A landline phone on site.

Will I see wildlife? Probably. Last year we experienced moose. deer and a black bear. So majestic.

Do I have to hike? Nope. You can do whatever feels good! Hang in front of the fire, have a glass of wine or cup of tea, sit on a large rock on the side of the river with a cup of tea and journal. It’s your time.

Is the hiking hard? Most of these hikes start as switchbacks, so they offer a very good workout. If that isn’t your thing, just walking on the road is pretty and a healthy walk.

What is Gravity Stretch? This is a revolutionary way to stretch the body and relieve fascia muscles which eases pain in the body and allows for more freedom of movements. Hold time of stretches begin at 2 minutes.

What will the weather be like? Every year is different and the weather is unpredictable, but it’s essentially gorgeous fall  Mountain weather in the day reaching 60’s and 70’s with chilly mornings in the 30’s. One year it snowed and it was glorious.

What can I expect in terms of food?  In this mountain retreat you can expect health, comfort food with a side of meat and/or fish.  Many of my retreats are heavily plant-focused but due to the hearty conditions, we will be enjoying more animal protein than typical. We accommodate all food sensitivities with proper notice.

What to wear: Layers, lots of them. See above statement on weather. I tend to be cold, so for morning walks I wear leg warmers, coat, hat and mittens. By the end of the walk, when the sun peaks over the mountain ridge, the layers get peeled off.
