Retreat

A retreat serves the body, mind and spirit by allowing time to find greater inner peace. When you find inner peace, you move the world toward peace. This is why it is vital to escape from the world’s bombardment of sounds and images and take time for the mind and heart to come to stillness.

Why retreat? People go on retreat for a number of reasons that generally focus on positive personal change:

 

  • Reconnect to your true self
  • Learn and practice methods to better yourself and your life
  • Relax at a deep level
  • Rejuvenate your Spirit
  • Take time for reflection
  • Gain clarity on an issue or your life path
  • Find meaning in your life beyond daily or material concerns
  • Heal
  • Practice your Faith
  • Contemplate
  • Create

One of the most popular styles of retreat at Siloam has been to re-connect, we have another group scheduled to arrive soon who will stay for three days to retreat from their daily lives and connect with each other.  Shortly after that group departs another group will arrive who will be focusing on leadership for their annual leadership retreat.

For your own personal retreat from intimate to extravagant; Siloam should be considered. Located where you are, creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquility here, there, anywhere.  Retreat services with or without overnight accommodations for individuals or groups, the Retreat coaches will help make your retreat and event dreams real!

Moving On…..the next chapter

Change is good.  A necessary process to avoid complacency and to take steps towards a goal.  If we look at life as chapters with a beginning, a middle, and an end taking time to recognize what chapter you’re in, maintaining a willingness to turn the page forward or go back to the last page because you were not quite finished……we are preparing to turn the page in the middle —-reading on to the end.  A mid-life crisis you might say as you familiarize yourself with the experience.

Siloam Retreat and Wine Shop has been very good to us.  For the last five years we have enjoyed reaching out, meeting, greeting, gathering, and pouring, swirling, sniffing, sipping, every glass a celebration with thousands of people.  If you count yourself as one of those people, our heartfelt gratitude goes to you.  Cheers!!

While the page we are turning has us selling the Retreat property, we are looking forward to staying connected to you and to meeting new friends…… to swirling, sniffing, and sipping—-every glass a celebration!!

Moving towards the goal of Yoga and Wine–Better with age and supporting our community and the World around us through the Siloam Foundation.  Please stay in touch, let us know if you have any questions or if we can help in any way.

In closing, we’re still here, we haven’t changed….just changing location.  Follow us ~

Offering an Alternative to the Hotel Stay..with continuous improvements

Take a relaxing soak in the hot tub, right outside your room

Siloam Retreat & Wine Shop is a unique Bed & Breakfast/Vacation Rental with the Retreat House offering overnight accommodations for up to 12 and the Wine Shop suitable for events for up to 50 people.  Nestled in the woods for privacy on the Upper Hood Canal near the Tahuya State Forest with over 23,000 acres of shared use trails on Green Mountain with scenic Olympic Mountain views and luscious gardens including the Siloam Pond and waterfall.  It is an ideal place to get away and stay a perfect alternative to the traditional hotel stay and cost savings are substantial for a group with two fully equipped kitchens.

Vacation Rentals are an outstanding choice as the alternative to a hotel stay:  http://todaytravel.today.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/04/13/11143814-more-families-booking-vacation-rentals-as-alternative-to-hotels?lite

One of the benefits is the relationship you have with the Innkeeper, we hear you and are here for you; a concierge service unsurpassed by that of hotels.  Its personal—designed especially for you, each guest has individual requests and if we can meet those requests–we do.  The follow up we do with each of our guests allows us to continually be improving guest stay, amenities, and the accommodations.  Recently we improved the Bordeaux and Chablis Room by adding more daylight, access to a private deck and hot tub with views of the pond from sliding doors that exit each of these rooms.  We also equipped the Chablis Room with a new King size bed–providing our guests with options of 2 kings, 2 queens and the 2 queen sleeper sofas for extra guests.

Accommodating groups has really been a win/win–family reunions, church groups, leadership retreats, and girl’s get-aways:  http://www.thedailymeal.com/girls-just-want-have-fun-girlfriend-getaways-slideshow Girls do just want to have fun…..We realized this first hand after our LivingSocial Escape Package was purchased by 80% women.  Again, as Innkeepers we heard from our guests that they loved the girly girl getaway package and wanted us to continuously offer these and make improvements like massage appointments, yoga instruction, dance classes, cooking demonstrations; all possible now through our Girly Girl Getaway Packages which feature Girly Girl Wines:  http://www.girlygirlwines.com/ a commemorative wine glass, and groups can add massage, dance, yoga, etc…Etc…

Come, Visit, Getaway to Siloam~ today!!  Cheers ~
