Shadowcliff is currently closed and will reopen Memorial Day. We begin accepting reservations for the summer season on February 1st, 2020.

Friday, September 4- Monday, September 7, 2020

Do you feel overworked, like you’re pushing too hard, your to-do list never ends, and time off never starts?

Over the Labor Day weekend, put it all on hold and come to the Colorado Rockies!

Join us at Rest! Renew! Create!  A Women’s Retreat at Shadowcliff Mountain Lodge, the perfect setting for rejuvenation, renewal, and creative expression.

Reboot and reset. Personal time and group creative activities are a perfect mix.  Your family, your colleagues, and you will be glad you took this time out for yourself.



We will first welcome our creative selves into the room with appreciation and respect, and then delve into group activities designed for delight and self-discovery.  As you deepen into yourself, you will have the opportunity to connect with other women at new levels.

Creativity is a birthright - no experience necessary. Bring your curiosity and willingness to experiment and explore.  We will leave our critics at the door.

And for your personal time? Consider a hike, connecting with new friends, a nap, or a drive into Rocky Mountain National Park.
