Rêverie brings you into the heart of travel. During a Rêverie Retreat, hospitality and a generous spirit of shared time are a high priority. Co-founded by Lisa Donovan and Julie Belcher, the entire team is dedicated to an immersive guest experience revolving around education, relaxation, joy, and a deep commitment to local agrarian and producer commerce and communities.

Chefs, writers, artists move around differently in this world. Their curiosity and deep dives and rabbit hole spelunking and natural-born lust for life – it all brings a very special kind of experience that feels at once wild and unique, and that’s what you can expect with Rêverie. They’re not serious people, but they’re serious about food and keeping their hands in good work. They can’t wait for you to join them.
