The Rural Writers Retreat is held at Banner Mountain Lodge, a quiet collection of cottages surrounding a main lodge just 10 minutes from Smithers, B.C. Participants are housed in several buildings on the property, offering the opportunity to retreat to your accommodation for quiet writing or visiting time. Accommodation is shared, with two to three people per room. All buildings are equipped with a kitchen and, while lunch and dinner are included in your registration fees, participants are responsible for providing their own breakfasts. Meals and large-group workshops are held in the main lodge. 

We're proud to have Small Potatoes Farm catering lunches and dinners at the retreat. Small potatoes grows much of the food they serve, so it's both fresh and delicious! Please let us know in advance about any dietary restrictions.
