3 Night Retreat


Hosted by
Jennifer Zimmerman
Founder of ( r I s e ).

Jennifer, an interior designer by trade, was born & raised just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and that's where you can find her when she's not off traipsing the countryside. She is the mother of four beautiful & adventurous children who are all located just north, south, east, and west of her. ( r I s e ) . was created to meet the needs of women in whatever capacity necessary. Working alongside private organizations & government agencies that aid in the care of battered women & children, women & children involved in human trafficking, and the women & children that have been affected by drug & alcohol addiction just to name a few. She knows "need" & that knowledge has compelled her to create space for women to recognize & become their best, most true selves. Whether that's by creating an actual physical space where women can go for services and/or safety or by creating experiences that allow her to see herself in a way that she's never seen herself before. Powerful & capable. Whatever the need, it will be met with kindness, care, and compassion. But most importantly love.

Horseback Riding

We’ve partnered with our friends at Horseplay Stables to give you the option of a guided horseback ride during the downtime of your retreat weekend! The $135/person includes an hour and a half guided trail ride through a beautiful meadow. The stables are about 30 minutes away and we can have a shuttle service coordinated if need be. Once you’re at the stables you can stroll the property, say hello to the horses, or hang by a fire - there’s plenty to do there on top of your horseback trail ride! They offer guided rides daily at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm for up to 10 people at a time. We’ll work with them to figure out the best time during your stay!
