The Idlewild Writers Retreat is held at the Auberge at Feather Hill, tucked into a scenic, rural corner of New England.

Our retreat participants come together in this lovely historic space to enjoy time to work on creative projects and time to engage in community with fellow-writers.  The Auberge offers several different contemplative spaces to work independently on writing projects each day, and spaces to gather together as a group for meals and community interactions.  The backyard at the Auberge connects directly with the Airline Trail, which offers writers opportunities to get outside and experience the full magic of New England in the fall.
