It's impossible to ignore the splendor of Willowtail's seclusion and enormous creative energy pulsing through the property. Bring your sketch pad and paints. Take a class or workshop. Sign up for a retreat or extended-stay residency. Host your own seminar. The options are endless!
While couples might enjoy our elopement, honeymoon or romance packages, writers, artists and natural scientists will be just as comfortable with the amenities of our onsite working studios. Gallery and studio space caters to corporate meetings, writing retreats, music venues, photography shows, experiential learning opportunities and more.
If you're needing a break from the solace of open spaces, join other guests at the dock or the tree-top deck at the Cloys for happy hour, watching storms roll across the La Plata Mountains in the distance and waiting for those soul-stirring rainbows to pop across the sky.
In short, the pure bliss of Willowtail can't be experienced in one evening or even two, so plan on staying an extra day to enjoy the grounds. Unclear about how to use your time?
