Give Yourself the Gift of Time.........

Pampered Self

A Woman's

Personal Retreat



Inspired by my own experience as a woman in "rush mode" for almost three decades, this retreat is designed to help you bring balance back into your life. 

This is an opportunity to indulge yourself in your own way.  There is no structure other than what you want to impose.  We offer you the gift of time to wander off your beaten path  to do as much or as little as you like.
              Merida Johns, Owner & Innkeeper

Woman's Retreat and Getaway

About the Woman's Retreat

Are you in  rush-mode? Over-committed? Emotionally and physically stressed out?  Give yourself the gift of time to wander off your beaten path and bring balance back into your life. 

Pampered Self is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a calming and soothing environment to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit.

The retreat is held on any weekend of each month.  You will arrive on Friday afternoon or early evening and depart late Sunday morning.  

The Inn has only three rooms, thus you will be in an intimate atmosphere to help you relax and de-stress,  

You plan your own retreat.  You may wish to have nothing structured, other than to take some quiet time for yourself; read a book, stroll and shop at our beautiful historic square, dine at one of our fine restaurants or cafes, or take a picnic lunch and walk in Emericson Park.

Perhaps, though, you want to have that long overdue massage, Reiki session, or manicure.  Maybe treat yourself to live theatre in the evening at the historic opera house.  Or unwind with a folk concert at OffSquare Music or Stage Left Cafe.. Any of these we will gladly arrange for you ahead of time, if you wish.



Bundling Board Bed and Breakfast RetreatYou will have your own beautifully appointed bedroom with private bath for two nights. Aromatherapy, meditation music, and tabletop fountains are available in each room to provide additional ambiance.   A pamper basket filled with calming items to refresh mind and spirit welcomes you upon arrival.  

Scrumptious, but healthy, breakfast menus have been designed specifically for the woman’s retreat and special diets and dietary restrictions are accommodated.  

Other amenities such as evening refreshments, complementary hot and cold beverages, hand-ironed cotton bed linens, fresh flowers, feather pillows, and evening turndown service are included, making this the ultimate pampered and personal retreat.

$275.00 plus 6% tax for two nights includes all Inn amenities.
