To make your gathering uniquely memorable, select from Chautauqua’s exciting menu of group wellness experiences, including gentle flow yoga, tranquility hikes, and private bansuri flute and harp concerts.

“Chautauqua… was the perfect environment for connectivity, self-exploration, and inspiration! Your contribution allowed us to accomplish our mission as a board, giving us the space and experiences needed to develop a plan on how we will inspire and impact our industry this next year. We left retreat with a sense of unity, peace and love.”
“Thank you so much for all your help with our staff retreat! We’ve had a terrific time being here at Chautauqua and in such a commodious and beautiful setting. Our team really loved the guided hike and the yoga class. We only wish we’d had more time to do more!” -National Partnership For New Americans
“Everyone was friendly and accommodating. Everything was exactly as we had discussed. We would definitely book here again.”
“The natural lighting of the meeting space and good-sized break-out rooms were a great fit for us. Our dinner at the dining hall was amazing, the full-service cottages were well-equipped and the easy access to the trail system into the beautiful Flatirons of the Rockies made everything seem very convenient.”
