Welcome to the Still Waters Blog
It’s been nearly a year since our fire in the main house and time has surely flown. We’ve been working with our public adjuster, insurance company, bookkeeper, accountant, architect and builder to restore Still Waters Retreat Center to it’s happy place: hosting groups. Since that day in March 2014, we converted Still Waters Pond LLC to a social enterprise, Still Waters Retreat Center, Inc.. We were the first retreat center in Connecticut, possibly the nation, to become a benefit corporation. By doing so, we’re building a company that gives back. We’ll be sharing details of this process as it unfolds.
We’re not yet taking reservations for late 2015, when we hope our renovations will be complete. We do not know the exact timeframe so until we do, we only have a waiting list for our prospective retreat clients. If you are a retreat leader interested in visiting Still Waters when we’re ready for tours again, please contact us. If you are a retreat attendee and want to learn more about our offerings, group reservations or R&R retreats, sign up for our email list on the home page. We look forward to being of service in the future to all our guests.
For those not aware, Still Waters experienced a house fire on Sunday, March 30, 2014. In this video below, Amy LaBossiere, managing partner of Still Waters, provides details.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we sort out the details of moving forward. Tao and I are extremely grateful to the Voluntown Volunteer Fire Department for their swift response and hard work to help save the house and ensure everyone was safe. We hope everyone takes extra measures this year to check their smoke detectors and fire alarms.
