We are trying something new for the 2017 retreat and having the retreat at The Cheshire Inn and Lodge a local boutique hotel instead of a traditional hotel chain. This luxury boutique hotel offers a “old world feel and quirky charm” and is located a few steps away from Forest Park, home to the Saint Louis Zoo and the Saint Louis Art Museum. Be sure to check out their website ( for a full list of amenities and more information.
