With caseloads falling and vaccination rates rising steadily in the DMV area, and in accordance with recommendations from the CDC and local officials, we are pleased to announce that we are lifting our vaccination requirement starting on March 10th.


We reserve the right to make amendments to this policy at any time as conditions change and as government and health officials advise to preserve the safety of our guests and staff. If you have any questions about this policy or your reservation, please reach out to us at thewoodandstoneretreat@gmail.com



Please read this carefully and understand the following terms before signing and submitting your application. If you have any questions please email 

thewoodandstoneretreat@gmail.com or call Jen Smith at (410) 882-1606.


We limit attendance to a small group, with alumni reservations confirmed first. We'll contact you within 5 days regarding your application. At that time, if we are able to accommodate you, we'll invoice you for a $600 deposit toward your $1,199 tuition fee. That deposit, once received, will serve to hold your space as your registration confirmation. Your balance is due by May 1st, 2022. You may also pay full tuition upon reservation confirmation. All but $100 is fully refundable up to May 1st.

If the workshop fills up, we will let you know that as well and hope that you can join us for the next one.


Tuition Covers:

  • Workshops (Daily group sessions and one-on-one)

  • All meals (Thursday dinner through breakfast Monday)

We highly recommend staying on-site to take advantage of the full 'retreat' experience and co-writing that happens during the off-hours.
