Stress Management & Mindfulness Retreat in Vermont

For those of you who have no stress in your lives, read no further. For those of you who have periods of stress or have stress on a daily basis, we have the answer. On the weekend of October 28th – 30th, we will be hosting a Stress Management and Mindfulness Retreat here at our peaceful Vermont bed and breakfast.

We will be able to identify our stressors and learn coping mechanisms to help us deal with life’s challenges. When guests visit the Inn, I always ask, “What brings you here?” 100% of the time, guests respond, “We just needed a getaway.” I always wonder, “away from what?” Kids? Parents? Job? Technology?  Finances? All of us need “downtime.” The purpose of this retreat is to enhance life skills we already have to help us feel better, reduce stress and enjoy our lives a little more. Where better to do this than the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont this fall.Mindfulness Retreat in Weston, Vermont

The weekend is being hosted by Timothy St. Onge. He and his wife Patricia are engaged in the private practice of psychotherapy and meditation studies with adults, individuals and couples, and older adolescents.

We’ll give you a complimentary country breakfast for two, which should fill you up for a good spell, at least until late afternoon.

In the late afternoon, join us between 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. for a tasting tour of some of Vermont’s finest craft brews.

Our Southern Vermont Inn Offers Deals in Honor of the Weston Playhouse

southern Vermont inn

Welcome to our new Inn at Weston blog, where we hope to bring you information regarding the our southern Vermont inn, the town of Weston, our wider area of southern Vermont, and sometimes just some topics of interest to us, and we hope to others.

Speaking of topics of interest, the summer season for our very own southern Vermont Weston Playhouse Theater Company is upon us! Last August, the lower level of the Playhouse building, which included the Café at the Falls Restaurant (where we run in the Playhouse during the Theater season), the Cabaret room, and storage and workspace used by the Theater Company, was completely destroyed by the floods which accompanied Tropical Storm Irene. With help from the entire town, clean-up of the area was completed in just days, and reconstruction began immediately. It continued all winter and has come to a conclusion, with everything looking more beautiful than ever. The Café at the Falls has a new look altogether, very bright and cheery, and we are so grateful that the new season has begun with great success!

The dates for the upcoming season are June 27 to September 11. Here is the Summer 2012 Schedule at the Playhouse Theater Company.

Main Stage:

7/12-7/28- Ella
8/2- 8/25- Fiddler on the Roof
8/30- 9/11 Pregnancy Pact

Other Stages:

Mary’s Wedding 7/19- 8/5
Bad Dates 8/16- 9/9

If you wish to know more about any of the above plays, you can read about these productions on the Weston Playhouse Theater Company’s website.

In celebration of this Summer 2012 Weston Playhouse season, our southern Vermont inn has a great One Night Play and Stay Package and also a Two Night Play and Stay Package available for you to discover and enjoy an unforgettable summer stay at our beautiful southern Vermont inn!
