Storytellers’ Experience

Wildacres Retreat has hosted many writing groups as well as storytellers.  Both groups find engaged and appreciative audiences at the retreat and find the peace of the mountains really fires their creativity.  Wildacres offers a range of spaces that such groups find fit their needs perfectly.  All stays at Wildacres include lodging, family-style meals in our dining hall, use of program facilities, and full access to our extensive hiking trail system.
