Ready for an adventure we booked 2 nights in beautiful Island Park. Where we took 17 women from the Northern Utah area and headed out for a weekend getaway.
We were lucky to have found the Gathering Place.
We got there near dark and we were so glad for the detailed directions and instructions that we were given from the owners Teara and Andy.
There was ample parking for 7 cars.. Yes, seven. Every size from Suburban to Honda. We fit with room to spare.
We entered and found the layout to spacious and very clean. There was even a minky travel blanket as a gift and local carmels to greet us!
They made our entry extra special with a special welcome to us as a group.
We promptly turned up the heat and got situated. We enjoyed sitting in the upper living room where we all had space to play games while our dinner was being prepared.
I have stayed at several rentals and I will say this kitchen was the most stocked and had everything you could want or need. From a large selection of kitchen ware to wine glasses. At dinner we were able to sit together in the dining space when we flipped the table long ways.
Quickly after dinner we headed outside to the hot tub. It was large, hot and a great way to relax after a 4 hour drive. To sit and just relax was just what we needed. It was snowing and made it even more enticing to get in.
We made our way back in and settled in for the night. The beds were comfortable and the bedding in excellent condition.
As morning found us and we quickly ate and went in separate directions. Some went walking in the local area, some stayed in for a bit and then hit the local shopping and another group went to Yellowstone which was only 35 minutes away, where they say grizzly bears, a baby wolf, coyote, badger, elk, bison, deer and pronghorn.
Heading in for the evening, it was nice to have well stocked bathrooms with all the amenities ample hot water that everyone enjoyed a hot shower. The towels were plush and soft.
When you have 17 women under one roof it can be a challenge. There were enough bathrooms, towels, space and amenities to keep everyone happy in a time of year where you experience all four seasons in a 24 hour period.
Thank you for having Soulful Women in Business and allowing us to experience your cabin. We can’t wait to come back!
If you are looking for a place for a large group or a place to host a retreat The Gathering Place is something you should look at. Teara and Andy really made us feel so welcome.
