Scouted Wellness Retreats You Should Know About

Originally published by THE SCOUT GUIDE on June 15, 2022.

We are deep into the age of self care, where no longer is the act of taking care of yourself considered an indulgence, but a necessity for living a healthy and joy-filled life. For those looking for ways to continue or begin a commitment to self care, we asked The Scout Guide editors to recommend wellness retreats that have the power to restore, reinvigorate, and renew the mind, body, and spirit. From an adventure-focused getaway in Iceland and transformative experience in Morocco to girlfriend gatherings in Virginia and restorative pampering in Pennsylvania, this collection of wellness retreats are just want you need to recommit to yourself. To find a scouted wellness ritual near you, visit the The Scout Guide Directory.


RETREAT: Windy Hill Farm and Preserve
LOCATION: Loudon, Tennessee
WHAT THEY OFFER: Windy Hill has something for everyone—from beekeeping, to yoga, to archery. Their new onsite restaurant and garden features garden-fresh cooking classes with chef Ben and they even offer wine hikes. The easy commute from Knoxville, Chattanooga, or Nashville, makes it the perfect getaway spot in East Tennessee.
WHAT OUR EDITOR SAYS: “If time could stop, I would welcome it with open arms when I visit the farm—it’s magical and every hour shows you something new. From the mystical sunrises to the glowing sunsets, Windy Hill nourishes your mind, body, and soul,” reports Frances King, editor of The Scout Guide Knoxville.
