“When nothing is certain, anything is possible.”

Heidi Zimmer, founder of Wild Rice Retreat said that on this week’s episode of the podcast, and I furiously wrote it down. Because even though she was talking about the uncertainty of breaking ground on the project she’d worked on for years in March of 2020, I felt like it applied to absolutely everything.

And today, Wild Rice Rice Retreat is thriving on the shores of Bayfield, Wisconsin. With stunning views of Lake Superior (my favorite Great Lake) and access to miles of trails, this shoreline oasis is as much about being in nature as it is about integrating wellness into your life.

And its price point – around $300 a night for meals, lodging, and yoga programming – is staggeringly low compared to some of the options available. Heidi’s vision is to make wellness travel accessible – and to do it all in the north woods of Wisconsin.

Hear all about it on this week’s episode!
