Features of the Retreat

 

ACCOMMODATION + FACILITIES

Nestled at the foot of Mount Race in Sheffield MA, Race Brook Lodge welcomes you to a place of peaceful respite and outstanding hospitality in alignment with local sustainability and inner harmony right here in the Berkshires.

When you step outside your room, you’ll be greeted with breathtaking hiking trails that will lead you to the must-see views from the top of Race Brook Falls. From there, you have direct access to The Appalachian Trail and just across the brook, you’ll find our farm garden, which grows much of the produce for our restaurant.

WHAT’S A VISION JOURNAL?

Think vision board meets journal. It’s a place to dream, brainstorm, and make plans. It’s where you gather inspiration and have sacred conversations with your soul. Vision boards are often created as a one time activity often at the beginning of the year. The vision journal is an ongoing process that keeps you connected to your vision. It supports you to go from dreaming to doing.
