One of the best things you can do for your employees is to host a wellness retreat. Whether it’s for executives, middle managers, or standard employees, wellness retreats enable you to reinforce your company culture and help bring everyone closer together.

Fortunately, these retreats are easy to organize and implement when you have access to the best venues in North America. With that in mind, here are our top picks for the 15 best venues for wellness retreats.

320 Guest Ranch

  • Location: Gallatin Gateway, Montana
  • Guest Count: 250

Typically, a mental health retreat works best when guests can escape the city and be surrounded by nature. Montana is one of the best states for wellness and meditation retreats because it’s so undeveloped and wild. 320 Guest Ranch is surrounded by gorgeous hillsides and tons of natural beauty, whether you host your retreat in the spring, summer, or winter. In addition to stunning venue spaces, there’s fishing, hiking, and horseback riding on-site, which you can incorporate into your retreat activities.

4 Eagle Ranch

  • Location: Wolcott, Colorado
  • Guest Count: 500

Like Montana, Colorado is another fantastic state for wellness retreats because of its pristine beauty and access to natural wonders. 4 Eagle Ranch is a historic venue, having been built in 1885. It served as a working ranch until the early 90s, and now it’s one of the best outdoor venues in Colorado. Part of what makes 4 Eagle so good for a wellness retreat is the number of activities available on-site, such as ax throwing, horseback riding, wine tasting, line dance lessons, blacksmithing, and much more.

Annapolis Basin Conference Center

  • Location: Cornwallis Park, Nova Scotia
  • Guest Count: 800

While there’s something special about hosting a wellness retreat in the forest, there’s also something incredible about being next to the ocean. The Annapolis Basin Conference Center is surrounded by water, making it an ideal spot for various meetings and activities for you and your guests. Plus, because it’s such a large venue, you can host a company-wide retreat and accommodate everyone comfortably. There are also nearby hiking trails and almost a mile of beach at your disposal.

Aspen Canyon Ranch

  • Location: Parshall, Colorado
  • Guest Count: 300

When planning a meditation or wellness retreat, one vital component to consider is whether it will be a single or multi-day affair. If your retreat spans multiple days, you want guests to be able to stay on-site for maximum convenience. At Aspen Canyon Ranch, there’s lodging for up to 56 people in cabins, or there’s enough space for 300 people to stay in tents during the summer. Surrounded by 450 acres of nature, there’s a lot to do at Aspen Canyon, and you can craft the best retreat possible for your team.

Bison View Lodge

  • Location: Nacooche, Georgia
  • Guest Count: 55

While some retreat center venues are built to accommodate multiple types of events, places like Bison View Lodge are designed for corporate and private retreats only. This means you get access to the entire facility, including 15 acres of pristine grounds on which to hike, host activities, or just enjoy nature. Bison View is in Northern Georgia, but it’s relatively close to the Atlanta airport, so it’s easy for guests to reach if they’re coming in from out of town. It’s also next to the small alpine village town of Helen, just in case you’re planning your retreat around the holiday season.
