Included in your weekend is:

  • Queen Bed accommodations within the hilltop lodge

  • Two comfort food dinners
  • Foraging walk to discover and identify edible plants with a snack and wellness tea at Wild Roots Apothecary
  • Two artful classes taught by Karen Hillman using real flowers and botanicals:

  • One-of-a-kind hand-made greeting cards and wax seals using pressed flowers. (Photos coming soon!)
  • We will also have some free time to explore Front Royal and surrounding towns.

The fee for this weekend is $550.00 per person. (If you wish to share a queen bed with someone else, or would consider bunk bed accommodations, I can offer a discount, inquire within.)
