Whether it’s a reunion with BFFs, a get-to-know-you with colleagues, or an organized event in a fresh environment, retreats are a surefire way to bond with your crew. Your surroundings can make or break your retreat, however, so you reserve the right to be choosy. With spacious country landscapes and outdoor attractions to boot, Lakeville comes front and center for group retreat destinations in Connecticut.
1. Steer Clear of Distractions
A retreat should be about being focusing on your group, so don’t let your attention be divided. At a countryside resort, you’ll avoid urban disturbances that detract from your retreat. Rather than bumping shoulders and muddling through noisy crowds, keep your focus squarely on bonding with your team (and the picturesque mountain and lake views of the southern Berkshires).
2. You Can’t Beat The Scenery
Pick a season, any season! Scenic sights grace the Litchfield Hills year-round. From lush summer lawns to vibrant fall foliage to postcard-worthy winters, expect your group to be in awe just walking from place to place (and perhaps competing over who took the best snapshots on their smartphones).
3. Ample Room, Indoors and Out
Whether you’re a party of five or 125, you’ll want a dedicated space to call your own during your group retreat in Connecticut. Grab blankets and some sandwiches and find a quiet spot amid our 30 acres of spacious lawns. If the weather doesn’t look promising for a picnic, share a meal at one of Interlaken’s many gathering spaces — we do provide catering for banquets and private parties. With a number of private conference rooms to choose from, you’ll feel like you’re the only group in the house.
4. Comfortable, Yet Convenient Countryside Lodging
With a number of cozy houses, cottages, and suites to choose from, every member of your group will find lodging that suits their style. If you’re looking to stay close together, reserve some of our traditional, hotel-style rooms at our Main Building, just a short stroll away from our indoor and outdoor meeting areas.
5. The Lakeville Area Has Something For Everyone (And We Mean Everyone)
A countryside retreat is more than coffee and conference rooms. Find time to unwind at our own Ellora Spa & Sanctuary or take a swing on one of our tennis courts. If you’re looking to get outdoorsy with your retreat itinerary, take a group hike on a leafy country trail or while away the day on the lake aboard a kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard.
Skip the distractions of a tourist-centric vacation spot, and plan your retreat at our countryside resort, just a train ride away from the Northeast’s major cities. Give us a call and we’ll set you up with a dedicated meeting planner, who’ll make sure your group retreat in Connecticut is everything it should be — a time for you to bond with friends, family, co-workers, or anything in between.
