Are you ready for a transformative and inspiring yoga retreat deep in the Rocky Mountains? This is a chance to mindfully unplug and reconnect with what is truly important - opening the heart and calming the mind. Here, you can relax, de-stress, and give yourself the gift of this fulfilling yoga retreat. Treat yourself to a retreat full of self-care, tranquility, and time to reflect. One breath of Montana mountain air will awaken something deep, a reminder of your connection to this precious earth.
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. 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 the guests return eagerly year after year, inevitably leaving the ranch feeling recharged and relaxed, and counting the days until they can again return.
For more than 40 years, the ranch has been home to yoga and conscience living retreats that help you experience your wholeness and remember your intimate connection to all of life. Many of today’s foremost voices on yoga, meditation, wellness, and health have come through the doors at one time or another including Joseph Campbell, K. Pattabhi Jois, Dr. Bernard Jensen, Dr. Andrew Weil, Lilias Folan, Angela Farmer, Mary Dunn, Rodney Yee, Patricia Walden, Erich Schiffmann, Judith Hanson Lasater, and Seane Corn to name only a few.
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.
Lake Cabin is the premier real estate at the Feathered Pipe Ranch. It has a beautiful two-bedroom, two baths, and fully appointed mountain cabin, this lovingly-constructed space is tailor-made for those seeking all the comforts of home (kitchen for coffee / tea and ready-made food only).
The east side of the cabin has a large living room / sitting area bathed in morning light with a large bay window offering a relaxing view of the peace garden, the sprawling lawn, and main lodge. The west side of the cabin has a second seating / lounging area off the master bedroom with a long row of windows outside the lake-side deck for the lake and sunset-viewing. The deck is a perfect space for gathering with friends or sitting in solitude to appreciate the late afternoon sparkles of Montana summer sunlight on the lake.
The chalet offers spectacular views of the ranch overlooking the lake and the northern Rocky Mountains stretching beyond. Rooms have been hand-crafted 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.
Up in the forest beyond Teachers’ Cabin, two more cabins are available for those who like being still more intimate with nature. The Honeymoon Cabin offers a rustic ambiance with a front porch and room for two with a private bathroom. Its proximity to the bathhouse allows you to take full advantages of the sauna, hot tub, and restful healing massage before snuggling in for the night.
Sai Condo is nestled still farther back in the tall pines with a large floor to ceiling wall of windows and room for three. Both the Honeymoon Cabin and Sai Condo have heat but Sai Condo lodgers will need to toddle off on a short walk to the beautiful bathhouse for restroom and shower facilities. Both cabins comfortably straddle the two worlds between nature living and the creature comforts of home.
The main lodge has the character of Western luxury of the last century with a huge, wood-beamed main hall and library with four adjoining spacious bedrooms. Each room sleeps 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 kitchen and dining hall where the staffs work their culinary magic.
The most requested lodging at the Feathered Pipe Ranch may be the yurt accommodation and for good reason. With large, glass domes located at the center of the lattice-supported, canvas ceiling, brilliant, and warm sunlight pours in during the day and offers a breathtaking view of the starry, starry sky at night, nothing compares! The yurts can sleep two and feature raised wood flooring and an interior sealed from the external elements.
New to the ranch in 2017 and sure to soon become a favorite alongside the yurt accommodations, the wall tents will make you feel like royalty while lounging in the great outdoors of Montana’s Rocky Mountains. The lovingly-appointed wall tents are more than just a great shelter for getting a good night’s sleep - they’re unique, roomy outdoor living spaces that offer a relaxing oasis for savoring fresh air and solitude.
