We feel so grateful to provide lodging to the Brave Girls Club Camp Haven on April 11-14 and The Gathering Retreat on May 10-13! Our good friend Tara Royer, of Royer's Pie Haven, is organizing both of these events, and they're sure to be top-notch! The Royers are a Round Top institution and definitely saw the potential of this magical, little town long before anyone else. Now Tara is bringing the magic of Brave Girls Club and The Gathering to Round Top, and we're so honored that she chose us for her inaugural events!
Camp Haven is a soul restoration camp that focuses on training women to get their life "unstuck, back on track & restored to their best selves." During the camp, women are led through the soul restoration course by Melody Ross of Brave Girls Club. It's a 5 day all-inclusive retreat with delicious meals, art supplies, and a fun trip to Round Top.
The Gathering Retreat, hosted by Meg Duerksen, Stephanie Ackerman, Tara Royer Steele, is a chance for women to gather and create. The four day retreat is series of art workshops, a chance to shop for treasures in Round Top, enjoy wonderful meals made by Tara, and enjoy a time of peaceful relaxation! All three of these ladies are crazy talented artists and have so much to share.

Four years ago, Smoot and I had a vision. With faith and living with intention, we decided to build an additional cottage on our property and designed it (with Mars Architects) to have a 900 sq ft great room. We wanted that room to be be used for these exact types of gatherings. We envisioned new beginnings, love, inspiration, healing to happen within those walls. It's a dream come true to see it all coming to life. Especially with Tara, being the first to hold this type of outside event there.
Both of Tara's opportunities are a wonderful way to escape the city, join with other women, and relax outside of the normal hustle and bustle of everyday life. Only a few tickets remain for both of these events, so be sure to register soon!
