As a top Wisconsin meeting resort, Edenwood has the privilege of hosting many retreats each year. This gives us a front row seat to some pretty incredible ideas and groups. With this kind of perspective, it would be silly to keep these ideas to ourselves. So, without further ado, here are the top five types of retreats we see done at our nature resort (and some tips for doing them yourself next time you’re here)!


1: Hunting Retreat

Hunting retreats are one of our top retreats – hands down – no matter the season. There are dozens of ways to enjoy Edenwood as a hunter. Not only do we offer several customizable guided hunt packages, but we also have the resources on site to host off season hunting support. For example, imagine getting away with your hunting crew to enjoy a week of the following:

  • Hunting dog off-season training retreat
  • Bow and gun maintenance retreat
  • Hunter’s safety course training retreat
  • Tracking tips and tricks retreat
  • Scouting retreats


2: Family Holiday Retreat

Coming in at a close second are family holiday retreats. These types of retreats are fantastic for families that all live in separate states. It’s also a great way to try a fresh new way to enjoy a family tradition. These can also double as a family reunion if you really want to get creative, too! Check out our planning resources in the following blogs:

We’re here for you no matter the day so don’t let the scheduled holidays restrict you. You and your loved ones can even plan a “Christmas in July” retreat if that’s your thing! The sky’s the limit.


3: Wellness Retreat

This category is one of our staff favorites because of powerful impact wellness retreats can provide. Whether it be mental health, physical health, spiritual health, or professional development (more on that in the next point), it’s always a fantastic blend of fun and function.

Wellness retreats are especially powerful when held here at Edenwood because we offer the added health benefit of a nature resort WI setting. There is much to be gained from the healing power of spending time in nature. And that’s exactly what a wellness retreat is all about, right?


4: Corporate/Staff Retreat

Corporate retreats are a popular option here at Edenwood. Getting to see your team work together outside of the office is not only fun and memorable but it’s also effective. Nature is not programmed or predictable; it requires us to adapt and flex as we achieve. As you plan your next staff retreat, have these links handy to help you:


5: Bachelor/Bachelorette Retreat

Having your wedding here at Edenwood is magical. The only thing that can possibly add to that perfection is adding on a bachelor or bachelorette retreat to the front end of it! In fact, Edenwood actually has the space to host the entire wedding party for a week or weekend of fun leading up to the big day.

We offer luxurious lodging that will suite any style, including 5 rustic lodges and 2 extravagant glamping tents. There are dozens of on-site activities including a bonfire pit, nature trails, canoeing, fishing, hunting, swimming, ziplining and UTV rentals. Live large with us and book the entire Edenwood property for the private retreat of a lifetime!
