When we began offering Foundation workshops, we knew we had a unique situation: a campus tucked away in the picturesque northeastern Pennsylvania Pocono Mountains, with the solitude writers and artists need to produce their best work.
Our campus consists of a 5,200-square-foot Retreat Center known as the Barn, 21 cabins, a lodge, and the Founders’ farmhouse, located in Boyds Mills–10 miles from Honesdale, Pennsylvania.
The Barn is the hub of activity for meals, hanging out, one-on-one meetings and workshop sessions, with several relaxed classroom-like areas, a Great Hall, an outdoor fireplace and a giant kitchen. The Lodge contains eight private rooms with private baths, and a great room for getting together with others, or just relaxing.

This intimate and inspiring setting in the Pocono Mountains features serene walking trails; a 1,300-acre forest; a creek that runs to the nearby Delaware; crisp, clean days; and night skies blanketed with stars.
Retreat into your own intimate space
Cabins and lodge rooms have modern facilities and are writer-ready with desks, chairs, and filled bookshelves.

Farm-style meals are prepared by a top-notch chef and mealtimes are perfect for lively discussions. Snacks are always available for late-night or early morning writing sessions.
