Due to an overwhelming response to our annual retreat, we have added an addition this summer. Join us in August for our first ever ALL ARTIST RETREAT.
This retreat is structured after the Writer’s Getaway Retreat, but we are expanding the offering to interdisciplinary arts. Any artist of any kind is welcome to come and be supported.
About our retreat:
Each day begins with an optional yoga practice specifically sequenced to invite creative expression and quiet the chatter of the mind. This is followed by nutritious seasonal breakfasts prepared by our chef Matt Brill formerly of New York's Esme, a delicious eatery in Brooklyn. We then enter 3 hours of silence in all common areas of the property. Perhaps one day you choose to work on the large deck, contemplating views of Dome Mountain or the Yellowstone River; another day, you wander over and write in the apple orchard, or in the privacy of your room. We break the silence for a lunch hour, and then enter a few more hours of focused work.
For those who are ready for adventure, we offer optional daily excursions (guided hikes, touring Yellowstone, hot springs soaks) before dinner. Each night after dinner there's the option to share your work if you feel inclined, or just sit by the campfire listening to some good mountain music.
What we offer:
6 hours of silence/day
3 beautifully prepared meals per day from chef Matt Brill
optional morning yoga practice with Kendra Potter (beginner to advanced levels welcome)
tour of Yellowstone National Park
visits to local hot springs
guided hikes in the Montana wilderness
private or shared rooms with a shared bath
curated community of other creatives from around the country
the gift of unscheduled and unstructured TIME

“MT+NYC Writers Retreat was one of the most unique and restorative writing experiences I've had…I left the retreat feeling restored and whole in a way I had not thought was possible. From the first yoga class that was focused on voice and creativity to the soak in the Boiling river, to impromptu conversations with other incredible women who are committed to their work, I was enchanted, engaged and taken care of…the accommodations are fantastic: the rooms are warm and cozy, the bathrooms are clean and heated, the food is so good, you'll think about it for weeks afterwards and wonder where to find hummus that tastes like that.”
