We would like to invite you to a writer’s week or weekend at Woodstock Inn Bed and Breakfast. It’s the perfect time to cozy in and produce the kind of writing you have always dreamed of! Kimberly Morgan, owner of the inn, is an active writer with two novels, a screenplay, and several plays to her credit. Would you like to join Kim for a week of focused writing?
The intent for the writer’s retreats is to give writers a chance to get away and focus completely on their writing. Woodstock Inn offers private rooms with en suite bathrooms. There are nooks and crannies throughout the property that you can tuck into and write. Breakfast is served every morning, and a boxed lunch is included midday. There are easy, paved walking spaces around the inn to help get the kinks out. In the evening, enjoy the historic Independence Square for dinner in a selection of nice restaurants, or use our kitchen to prepare something simple.
Evenings will include gatherings around the fireplace to help inspire you. Gatherings will include writing tips and takeaways, discussion of work, and the chance to share your work with others. Take off in the middle of a talk if you get inspired to write. We don’t mind. The week is focused on you being able to produce the writing you have longed to create.
Week price: $775 single occupancy. (There are a few rooms that can accommodate 2 people. price for double occupancy: $475 per person.) Weekend price: $350 single occupancy (There are a few rooms that can accommodate 2 people. Price for double occupancy $225 per person.)

A Healthy Week at Woodstock Inn Bed and Breakfast Oct. 27-Nov 2
You asked, we have organized a great week of fitness and fun at Woodstock Inn B&B, Independence’s international bed and breakfast. At Woodstock Inn Bed and Breakfast each room has a European theme, and we love to draw people from all over the United States and the world. For this first ever healthy week at Woodstock, we have extended a special invitation to our UK friends to join us for a week of music and some country western fun. It’s a week of getting on track in advance of the holidays, and taking a little time for you. “Get fit and flexible in an environment committed to bringing physical, mental, and spiritual balance to your life.” That is the mission of our guest instructors at Studio on Main. Also, we will have instructors for boot camp and dance. This is a great chance to learn something new in a supportive atmosphere.
