Adventure North Retreat | Manitowish Waters, WI

“Join Northerly Collective and Lake Effect Co. to experience the soul of northern Wisconsin. Adventure-loving women from across the Midwest will enjoy a long, dreamy September weekend at Alderwood Resort in Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin. The main agenda? To celebrate the woods + water of the Northwoods, to create a community of creative women, and to cultivate inspiration for the seasons to come.” – This is what the retreat website reads.

It took little to no convincing to sign me up for a weekend like this. In a season of life filled with running, going, and doing, a weekend to slow it down was just the thing I needed. We filled our days with wine and cheese tasting, tacos, s’mores around the fire, morning swims, coffee on the water, hiking, a hand lettering workshop, kayaking, lakeside and lakeside yoga. Best of all, we filled these three days with sweet new friends, laughing around the fire, and dreaming up new dreams. Scroll on to feel all the good feels for yourself.

S/O to the weekends amazing hosts and sponsors:
The Northerly Collective
Lake Effect Co.
Alderwood Resort
Stormy Kromer

Ruby Coffee
Underground Food Collective
Nan’s Naughty and Nice Bloody Mary Mix

let's make this magic together ⟼

imagine this...

it's just you and your fiance.

You're nestled up by a fire at your family cabin, lakeside, with only the stars to accompany your sweet conversation over hot cocoa and Blue Moon.

you begin dreaming up your perfect wedding day.

Family, friends, and twinkle lights. Windblown hair. Hiking boots for adventurous photography. Cozy moments for just the two of you.
A dirty hem from dancing and making memories...
and smiles you just can't wipe off your faces.
