Hope Springs Institute is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. The swaying meadow grasses, and inviting sloping fields, only rival the beauty of the trees along the ridges and the rock formations in the ravines. The sound of trickling water down the ravine's rocky walls provides a serene atmosphere that brings out the poet in everyone. Two ponds offer the opportunity to thoughtfully gaze and become lost in the quiet. Walking trails provide comfortable access to nature's wonder where deer and wild turkey are frequently sighted.

The studio is an octagonal 1500 square feet building with exquisitely finished maple hardwood floors, high skylights, and spacious ceilings. It evokes a reverent and tranquil response from guests, inviting yoga dance, and conversation circles. A second facility, spirit house, is a round meditation and meeting space with a central sunken fire pit with supporting contemplative art at the outer edge of open space.

All meals are included in the price of the retreat. Specializing in delicious, home cooked, vegetarian meals, Hope Springs Institute works closely with workshop leaders. Their goal is to provide a menu that supports the individuals who come and the work they are doing. They have fun creating menus and meals just for you. They are committed to providing an opportunity for people to experience food that is full of love, nutrition, and beauty to satisfy body and soul. As Hope Springs Institute continues to explore what being in right relationship with the food means it is also examining seasonality. In winter, they will pay a lot more attention to root vegetables, dried beans and grains. In spring there will be lettuces and seasonal vegetables like broccoli and asparagus. In the summer, the bounty of the season will be everywhere, tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, and corn. In the fall the sweetness of fall squashes, apples and nuts will be evident in the food preparations. Moreover, because the harvest will be preserved, there will be the added luxury of pickled salad tomatoes on the grayest days of winter, and aromatic pesto stirred into a stout potage on a cold winters night.
