You will be staying at Feathered Pipe Ranch. The lodging options offer the finest in rustic comfort. Indoor and outdoor choices include a variety of private or shared accommodations ranging from chalet-style rooms to tents, tipis, and yurts nestled in the forest.

The accommodation will provide bedding, towels, and all the amenities you’d expect with indoor lodging. There is a cedar wood bathhouse with showers, a sauna, a hot tub, and massage rooms. Outdoor lodging guests have their own private storage nook for toiletries and personal effects in the bathhouse. The bathhouse is no more than a five-minute walk from any accommodation. The ranch provides a laundry service, sending your laundry to town and returning it the next day for a small charge.

The ranch chalet

The chalet offers spectacular views of the ranch overlooking the lake and the northern Rocky Mountains stretching beyond. Rooms have been handcrafted with wood flooring, abundant soft lighting, wood-chinked, outer walls, and central heating for the rare occasions when the wondrous Montana summer nights become too chilly for your comfort. Private and shared bathrooms are available with a shared veranda for the upper floor and outer deck for the ground floor rooms.

Main lodge rooms

The main lodge has the character of the western luxury of the last century with a huge wood-beamed main hall and library with four adjoining spacious bedrooms.

Each room accommodates three or four and has its own bathroom. Staying in the main lodge has the advantages of immediate 24-hour access to the main hall for personal early morning practice and close proximity to the Feathered Pipe Ranch's kitchen and dining hall where the staffs work their culinary magic.

Sai condo

Sai Condo is nestled still farther back in the tall pines, with a large floor to ceiling wall of windows and room for three. Guests will need to take a short walk to the beautiful bathhouse for restroom, spa, and shower facilities. It is a great option for a group of three.

Lake cabin

This is a premier real estate at the ranch! A beautiful two-bedroom, two bath, fully appointed mountain cabin that can be reserved as a single or double in each side.

Tents

Tent accommodations are hidden amidst the trees for those who truly want solitude in the Montana great outdoors. Each tent comes with a proper mattress and nice linens, plus it includes full access to the nearby bathhouse with its fragrant cedar wood, the warmth of the sauna, and soothing bliss inside the sparkling hot tub.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place at Feathered Pipe Ranch in Helena, Montana, USA. Nestled in the pulsing heart of the Montana Rockies, it is a place like no other. Being one of the oldest centers for conscious living and yoga retreats in the country, Feathered Pipe Ranch offers workshop experiences guided by some of the world’s finest teachers in a relaxed, leisurely, and nature-drenched setting.

Visitors can wander the sacred land, exploring ambling brooks fed by pure mountain springs, open vistas, and star gazing like no other place in the world. You can just as easily find community with others, sitting on the open lawn in the shade of cottonwood trees, quaking aspens, and fragrant pine with an exquisite view out over the secluded lake.

Surrounded by millions of acres of forest and mountains, the Feathered Pipe Ranch is one of the country’s premier retreat centers. It is a vibrant and peaceful oasis to which guests return eagerly year after year - inevitably leaving the ranch feeling recharged and relaxed - and counting the days until they can again return.

Things to do (optional)

Massage and bodywork

The Ranch is happy to boast that they have some of the best bodyworkers around. Professional massage and bodywork are available during all retreats. Introductions to their bodyworkers and details about how to sign up and where to go for your session will be shared at the retreat orientation and appointments can be made then. It’s a good idea to sign up early as their schedules often fill quickly! Payment is by cash or checks only; the bodyworkers do not accept credit cards.

Exploring Montana before or after the retreat

Please plan some extra time to explore this state! The ranch itself is halfway between Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks (3 hours by car in either direction), so you might consider coming a few days early or staying a few days after your retreat to take in one or both of these natural treasures.
