Cottages and lodges at Skyterra Wellness Retreat offer shared living spaces with private guest rooms and en-suite bathrooms. The privacy of the sleeping spaces is balanced by the camaraderie of shared open spaces. All accommodations include fully equipped kitchens, washers and dryers, and outdoor patios with wooded views.

The main facilities include a culinary center, conference room, and studios. There is also a full service spa. When the weather allows, sports and activities take place outdoors, which includes hiking trails, tennis courts, a private lake, and a pool.


The resort staff at Skyterra Wellness Retreat encourages consistent movement. There is a strong focus on outdoor fitness, including walking, hiking, yoga, cycling, kayaking, paddle boarding, water aerobics, cardio interval, and strength training. During inclement weather, many of these activities can take place indoors, as well. There are over 40 weekly classes.

Each guest begins their retreat with a complete mobility screening. Using tenants of the Functional Movement Screen (FMS), weaknesses and imbalances are identified. Then a personalized fitness plan is developed, and professional staff monitor that plan throughout every stay. Guests are taught good fitness habits to take home with them after they leave. They are encouraged to have fun while working out to build a long-term enjoyment of exercise.
