Traveling Alone/Solo

No worries. You will connect with some amazing ladies at the retreat. It is our intent that everyone feels welcome, loved and supported. Come with an open heart and mind and you are bound to make new connections.


We are providing transportation from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) to The Mountain Retreat Center. You are responsible for your travel arrangements to ATL airport. If you are taking advantage of this service, we suggest that you arrive to ATL airport by 3:00pm.

You have the option to drive to The Mountain Retreat Center. We suggest that if you are driving, plan to arrive before sunset. You will be driving on winding roads and up a mountain which may prove challenging and dangerous at night.  

Lodging & Accommodations

The lodging will sleep two ladies per room. You will be randomly paired with a roommate. If you would like to share a room with someone that you know, please include their name on your reservation form. We’ll make every attempt to honor these requests.

Each room has a single bathroom. There are standard conveniences like electricity and heat. The room has bedding and basic toiletries. However, there are no TV’s or DVD players. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. They are not luxurious accommodations.  

Packing Tips

We will send an email in the weeks prior to the retreat with suggestions on what to pack. In general, think relaxed and comfortable. There will be some walking from lodging to dining and meeting spaces. Be sure to bring comfortable shoes.

Cell Phone Service/Wi-Fi

There is limited cell phone service available at The Mountain Retreat Center. However, there is Wi-Fi available in the meeting spaces, dining hall, crafts barn, and lodge rooms. We hope that you use the retreat as an opportunity to disconnect.
