CABIN WINMORE: The Creative Space Retreats (Midtown Atlanta)

“What a great morning escaping into a creative world to wonder, wander, imagine, write, paint, and engage in creative collaborative conversation. Love being able to interact with this living artifact of a space.” – Creative Retreat Participant (Oct. 16, 2020)

“The gift of escape, inspiration and peaceful comfort. I leave feeling ready to face my life with a clear mind.” (Oct. 16, 2020)

“Cabin Winmore is absolutely unique. Its an ecclectic mix of nostalgic, design, visual inspiration and cultural artifact. Literally thousands of points of potential inspiration. In 3 hours I listened, wrote, sketched, thought, painted, conversed,…my mind was free to wander and wonder. Time well spent.” (Oct. 16, 2020)

“In order to understand others you need to walk in their shoes or take a tour of their mind. Cabin Winmore allows the time and space to do both. You could spend days here and have a different experience each time, leaving you with a sense of meaning and transformation toward eternal possibilities.” (Oct. 16, 2020)
