"My retreat experience at 1440 was life changing. Every member of the staff that I encountered was committed to creating a memorable and nourishing experience."
"The grounds are beautiful, the food was INCREDIBLE, the music playing was just what I wanted to hear and the staff...the most caring, kind and helpful people I have ever interacted with."
"So many little things added to our experience and healing: All the bees on flowers...the gorgeous and unexpected lighting while outside in the evening...the honest passion that everyone we met shared with us when we engaged them! Chefs, Groundskeepers, Front Desk Staff, Managers...everyone was so sincere and gentle."
"The staff was outstanding; each and every one at the front desk, in the kitchen, hiking, yoga and tai chi instructors. The grounds and facilities were also truly excellent. Such a dedicated team from top to bottom."
