It's an Experience
One of the things Houston and I have learned from our four children is the value of experiences versus material goods. Maybe it’s generational. Whatever the reason, their perspective continues to make an impact on us.
It’s the lens through which we view Purdon Groves. In fact, creating experiences is what’s most important to us.
The Retreat Experience.
The Chef’s Table Experience.
The Garden Experience.
The Bee Experience.
We view everything we do at Purdon Groves as an experience. It’s not just a fancy way of describing an item on an offerings page.
We believe that there’s value to an experience - whether it’s spending time reflecting, meditating and creating on your own; connecting with others over a deliciously handcrafted meal; harvesting fresh vegetables from the garden or learning about bees and tasting their honey.
At the crux of each experience is a lot of planning and care, attention to detail, hospitality and a heart that values our guests and wants to send them home with something.
Some guests go home with fragrant herbs. Some artists are inspired to create a new work or to write the last chapter in their book. Some children may go home with a notebook filled with all they’ve learned about honeybees.
Others leave Purdon Groves with something intangible. Maybe they were able to connect on a more meaningful level with their spouse. Maybe a family was able to celebrate a marriage or a reunion. Or maybe an individual was able to reflect, meditate and just go back to their everyday life refreshed. It could even be returning home with a sense of being valued and welcome.
Wherever your life has taken you, wherever you now find yourself or wherever you’re heading, we look forward to creating an Experience for you!

Last Saturday morning I went to check on the new baby chicks, as I did most mornings, and saw that one of the cute, speckled brown ones was missing from the coop. Super bummed, but knowing that there
