We’re stoked to host our first women’s adventure retreat on September 16-18, 2022. This awesome adventure retreat was created by women for women! All activities are led by qualified female instructors with equipment provided. Meals are prepared with love by one of our favorite female chefs while we relax and adventure on a woman-owned farm in Grandview, TN.
This 3 day / 2 night retreat gives first timers and long time outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to unplug, explore and develop a deeper connection with nature while making new friends through adventure activities like hiking, paddling, and mountain biking in a safe and supportive environment.
This all inclusive outdoor retreat takes place on a beautiful 116-acre, woman-owned farm in Grandview, TN. There are several different accommodation styles for participants to choose from based on preferences and comfort levels. You can choose to tent camp in an open field with your own equipment or “glamp” in the chic off-grid glampsites at Lemon Lane Farm.
Over the course of the weekend you’ll start your mornings with a gentle grounding yoga practice, then spend your day engaged in activities like mountain biking, paddle boarding and hiking to a waterfall with knowledgeable female instructors and guides. In the evenings we’ll gather in community for dinner and campfire stories around a fire we built ourselves and reminisce about the day’s adventures.
Do it yourself tent camping for those who want all out adventure at the lowest price! *Camping price does not include a tent. But, if you don’t have your own camping equipment, please reach out. We will do our very best to find you some for little to no additional cost. Our goal is to make this adventure retreat as inclusive and accessible as possible to all women.
Rustic Chic Off-Grid Glamping options for those who want adventure without having to rough it. Choose from the Happy Camper (pictured here), the Cowgirl Cabin, Baloo the converted skoolie bus, the Tiny House or Winnie Jane Bago. When we say rustic and off-grid, we mean it. You’ll sleep in a comfy bed, but you won’t have in unit facilities or running water.
Who’s it for? This weekend event is open to women identified folks of all ages, races, sizes, and experience levels that feel a women’s outdoor adventure retreat is the right space for them.

We are collaborating with Lemon Lane Farm in Grandview, TN to host this women’s adventure retreat. You’re going to love this place and all the animals that are fortunate enough to call it home. Grandview is located an hour north of Chattanooga, 1 hour and 10 minutes southwest of Knoxville and just over 2 hours east of Nashville. We recommend flying into Chattanooga or Knoxville Regional airports and getting a rental car. Uber/Lyft may be available for transfer.
We tried to keep the cost low. $629 for tent campers, and $779 for glampers covers all meals, snacks, beverages, guided activities + gear, fellowship with other adventure seeking women and some fun stuff to take home. Oh, and porta-potties. Glampers get their own outdoor privies included with their units, but the farm is off grid so running water will be limited. We’re passionate about this camp being accessible to everyone AND we need to cover the cost of creating an excellent experience.
We’ll provide good food everyone will enjoy. Hearty plant-based meals and snacks will be served to fuel your adventurous spirit. Please indicate food allergies and sensitivities during checkout so we can accommodate you.
We’ll have a few porta-potties available and glamping units come with their own privies or composting toilets. You’ll learn a lot about alternate ways to deal with nature when it calls in nature.
After playing outside in the woods all day, you may want a shower, or you may just want to rest. Either way, we’re going to offer some creative ways to rinse the stink away.
We provide all the outdoor equipment for the guided activities including paddleboards, lifejackets, paddles, mountain bikes and helmets. We don’t provide camping gear including tents, ground pads or sleeping bags. We are seeking a tent sponsor so if you know one, send em our way! If you don’t have camping equipment, don’t let that stop you. We want this event to be accessible to all, so please reach out and we will find a creative way to get you what you need. You’ll definitely want to bring your own personal gear like a sleeping bag, pillow, and for sure your own toothbrush, the rest we can help cover. At the end of the weekend, when you want to buy gear for your future outdoorsy self, we can help guide you on the best places to shop.
Our goal is to get you to unplug, disconnect and escape your busy, complicated life for a short weekend in the woods. We hope over the course of the weekend you’ll take more time to grow, stretch, breathe in the mountain air and reconnect with nature so that you can recharge your soul. You might have cell service on the mountain and you might not. You definitely won’t have access to wi-fi. Sorry, not sorry. Let’s connect with nature, each other and discover ourselves on this retreat.
This retreat is open to any women over the age of 18 that has a sense of adventure.
The purpose of the weekend is to learn new things and stretch our comfort zones. You’ll have the opportunity to mountain bike, paddleboard, and hike all while being coached and encouraged by other women. All equipment will be provided.
We’re adamant about enforcing leave no trace (which means leaving your campsite and any place you visit looking like you were never there). That means nothing. Nada. Not even your chewing gum. This land is beautiful and we wanna take care of it. Everything you bring in you gotta take back out.
We will have medical personnel on hand to patch you up if you get a boo boo while trying something new. This is a safe place to stumble and fall. You’ll have a whole group of friends cheering you on and encouraging you to get up and try again. If you get too tired, too thirsty, or too blistery, our staff will be there to help get you back in the action (or they’ll give you chocolate and make you sit in a hammock in the shade until it’s dinner time)
