We had dinner (nothing special, though salad was terrific)--it was a bit hard to find a seat to eat and attendees were not particularly friendly, thought the staff was. The music performance was lovely (base, violin and piano) and the setting was unbelievable. Despite the...More

This women's retreat is so special but it is not a 5-star resort. You must share bathrooms, meals, sleep in a twin bed in buildings without air-conditioning. Sort of like being in camp. What will you get in return. A magical experience with phenomenal views...More

I was an artist in residence, along with seven other artists, for a week at Wiawaka, and it was a magical experience. The grounds and view of the lake were inspiring, and the hospitality and warmth of the staff made the visit even better. Highly...More

There is an awesome vibe at Wiawaka. An ongoing summer retreat for working women from the Troy collar factories. Although the clientele has changed a wee bit, the energy, spirit and sense of sisterhood has not. A breathtaking expanse of Lake George (undeveloped and turn...More

UNIQUE "women's retreat" on a jaw-dropping, expansive lakefront property. Three historic Victorian buildings, plus accommodations in two others, including the recently restored Waconda House. Stay or get a day pass for $15.00. No men, no kids. BLISS. Meals can be purchased separately. Many life enrichment...More
