We are located on 20 wooded acres where you feel as if you have truly
escaped into the mountains yet we are just 1 mile off the main highway and
just 8 miles away from the towns of Ellijay and Blue Ridge.
We are not a retreat center and have just the one room. This allows you to
have the peace, quiet and privacy you desire when you are needing to get
away to rest, to heal, to catch up on your sleep and to revitalize your
energy; to have personal self-directed retreat time or to write. Yet, you are
not isolated, my husband and I are just around the corner.
Our Story: Many years ago I moved back to Georgia from Colorado after 25
years. It was a huge transition and I was looking for a getaway place where
I could be alone and rest; a place where I felt secluded and secure but was
not isolated. Everyplace I found was either isolated or was a retreat spa
with many other people around. I was so disappointed. So, I decided to
create my dream getaway and thus, Chamomile Retreat was born.
Our Mission Statement
To share our peaceful environment with those seeking a personal private
retreat or a time of healing in nature's wooded quiet.
Chamomile Retreat is one of those rare still spots in the universe. Here,
lightening bugs replace streetlight and wind replaces the pulse of everyday
traffic, creating a perfect environment for intent listening, thinking and
feeling--an ideal setting for a writer. No stranger to the creative process, Andrea
Hinda helps guests make the most of their time at Chamomile Retreat. My
comfortable suite had everything I needed to be private and self-contained and
yet the invitation to seek out community at the main house was ever-welcoming.
My stay at Chamomile Retreat was a time of deep repose and creativity that I
could not have created for myself in my everyday setting; thank you again for
such a tremendous and lasting gift.
