Bend of Ivy's July 2022 Newsletter

Dear BOI Friends!

Summer is here! Lots been happening at Bend of Ivy with many client retreats, events and groups flowing through here. A big event we loved supporting recently was MAHEC. They hosted their June family medicine retreat here. They had so much fun! And we loved offering a healing space for the healers!
"We rented Bend of Ivy for our MAHEC family medicine retreat. Both Susan and Stephanie were very accommodating and provided excellent communication throughout the process. Everyone loved the venue. The outdoor spaces provided beautiful scenery and relaxing hours. The pond was particularly refreshing on such a warm summers day. The goats were adorable! The indoor spaces were comfortable and homey. We loved having the commercial kitchen to help with all the food preparation. It was a beautiful summer weekend, and Bend of Ivy was the perfect spot for us!"
