Wedding rehearsals, corporate meetings, workshops, songwriting sessions, bachlorette parties, tree-climbing expeditions, academic department retreats, wellness retreats, team-building exercises, etc. The variety of events people have had in our rented Lodgings boggle the imagination. Some groups prefer to walk from their house(s) to nearby Big East Fork Retreat and rent additional space there, while others want to stay put and eat, sleep, learn, socialize, recreate, and who-knows-what-else in their Lodging without having to move to another location.
