We’ll provide a “room of your own,” complete with a private bath, a light breakfast and lunch daily, and space within this historic New England home that was once a landmark boutique inn. 

It’s where you’ll find uninterrupted time to work, imagine, create and be. Come. Your words are waiting. 

Mornings begin at 7:30, and will incorporate simple movement, breathing and intention setting, perhaps an easy walk along back country roads, followed by a light buffet breakfast from 9:00-9:45

Write until lunch: 12:30- 1:15

The Icing: Engage one of our award winning guest writers, book editors, and publishers for a private one hour session. It can be arranged in advance, after lunch, for an additional cost of $195. 

4:00- 6:00 Tea and Talk led by writer Barbara Newman & various guest authors. It’s an opportunity to share your work with others, in a supportive, safe, low-pressure environment.

Dinner on your own, at one of Great Barrington’s farm to table restaurants, or here in New Marlborough, at either Old Inn on the Green, Gedney Farm or Cantina 229.
