Road Scholar Retreats



Are there special places in America where you can get away from it all and connect with nature and yourself? Places where instead of hustle and bustle, you’ll find good friends and enriching experiences, all in a serene setting? The answer is “Yes.”

Welcome to Road Scholar Retreats

We have hand-picked idyllic locations across the country where Road Scholars have thrived for years to be the homes of our Road Scholar Retreats. Each Road Scholar Retreat has been selected for its natural beauty, storied history, warmhearted staff and, as always, its treasure trove of educational discovery.

Never a cookie-cutter chain hotel, lodgings run the gamut from charming cottages to historic conference centers and even an educational field station. Amenity levels vary but all guarantee a welcoming, no-frills atmosphere—the ideal setting for relaxing after energizing experiences in the classroom or outdoors and reflecting on a great day with new friends and, perhaps, your new self.


At Each Road Scholar Retreat ...

  • Begin each morning with easy, optional exercise that unlocks your limbs and motivates your mind.
  • Meet with community members to get insight into local life.
  • Pull up a chair and sit down for one authentic, farm-to-table meal.
  • Enjoy a live performance or event.
  • If you’re going solo, you can have a room to yourself for under $200 more at many retreats.
