5 Reasons to Book Your Retreat at The Stone Cottage at Serenbe

Outdoor Retreat

In an increasingly fragmented world, the power of in-person connections has never been more important. As technology continues to accelerate the pace of work and drive an always-on culture, strategic retreats offer an invaluable platform for intentional human interaction, leadership development, team alignment, and forward-thinking strategic planning.


But the ultimate success of a retreat may hinge significantly on one crucial decision: the choice of venue.

The right setting can catalyze creativity, ensure privacy for confidential discussions, and foster an environment where strategic visions are not only conceived but also brought into sharp focus.


As an event professional, selecting a venue that aligns with the objectives of the group is more than a logistical task; it is a strategic investment in the future of the organization. It's about finding a place that resonates with the ambition and ethos of the leadership team that you support — a venue that stands as a testament to the value placed on foresight, innovation, and cohesive team dynamics.


Stone Cottage at Serenbe is distinguished by its stunning surroundings and unparalleled ability to cater to the nuanced needs of executive teams. We offer a blend of exclusivity, state-of-the-art facilities, and bespoke services that promise to elevate your next corporate retreat to a transformative experience.


Here are the top five reasons why Stone Cottage is the premier choice for event professionals supporting CEOs and their executive teams.

4. Incredible Experiences in Serenbe

Serenbe is built around four hamlets, each with a specific focus: agriculture, health and healing, education, visual and culinary arts, all of which are designed with common greenspaces, over 15 miles of trails, striking architecture, and proximity to small local businesses.


While nationally acclaimed as a leading community on New Urbanism, the village remains unphased by bustling Atlanta. Serenbe’s passion for and connectivity with nature makes it an ideal location for an executive retreat.


From organic farming and farm-to-table restaurants to the abundance of outdoor activities and old-world shops, Serenbe is a haven for creativity and inspiration. As your team explores the community, there is something to inspire everyone: from exploring the arts, trail riding and running, music and reading, or fine dining and exquisite wine tasting.

5. Enduring Value
