Host your next Retreat/Workshop at a Dwell Vacations property!


A retreat or hands-on workshop at a Dwell Vacations property leaves guests feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and inspired.

We cater to small businesses and groups that want to gather in an atmosphere that will cultivate new ideas, bring employees together as a team and leave them with long-lasting memories and new energy. Holding retreats in one of our vacation homes can help not only set the mood, but also puts a new twist on your meeting protocol. Our well-appointed vacation properties are ideal for large groups with lots of room to spread out into small groups or enjoy large group meeting or relaxing time.

Some of the retreats we’ve hosted:

  • Wellness Retreats: yoga, meditation, wellness and nature.
  • Creative Workshops: photography, floral design, cooking, crafting, painting and writing.
  • Business Teams: inspiration, team-building, content creation and quality time to reconnect without distractions.

Your retreat can be a beautiful time for your guests grow closer and leave feeling renewed and accomplished. The kind of relaxation and creativity that only being in a luxurious space can provide. Being located just a short drive from Chicago, Milwaukee, Grand Rapids, Detroit, Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, South Bend, and the shores of Lake Michigan, makes our Dwell Vacations properties the perfect place for your group to conveniently get away.
