Pine Lake Sunset.jpeg

Retreat at Pine Lake | Millstadt, IL

Experience Inspiration Activation just 30 minutes from downtown Saint Louis, at the cozy Lodge at Pine Lake.

This quiet serene atmosphere is perfect for individuals & small groups. 

Enjoy the sunset by kayak, paddle board or canoe, star gaze from the hot tub & share conversation around the bonfire! The lodge is a full two bedroom house with many windows overlooking the lake & inviting space to gather outdoors to connect with nature. 

Our next group gathering here will be Nov 19-20th.

This overnight mini-retreat will offer a Transformational Breathwork & Journaling Session by Shenee Alexa as well as Massage & Weaving Gratitude: a Mindful Movement Session by Maura Lee of Form & Function Bodywork.

We will spend most of our time outdoors, enjoying the sunset over the water. If the weather is cold, indoor spaces with fresh air flow will be utilized for our workshops.

Our schedule is as follows:


4-530pm 👇🏻

Maura Lee will be offering short massages to those who would enjoy one. These will be scheduled on a first to arrive basis. Please be aware that if you arrive late, we cannot guarantee availability.

I love to help others design their own personal retreat experience by offering a variety of modalities including massage, reiki, pranic healing, mindful movement, guided self-inquiry journalng &/or transformational breathwork. After your scheduled session time, I will leave you to continue your own private retreat.

This is the perfect getaway idea for your next anniversary, celebration or gesture of gratitude.
