Winshape Marriage… not just for newlyweds! This was our weekend!
I’m going to lay out 5 awesome reasons to hurry and get to Winshape Retreat as fast as you can!
First let me say that if you ever get the chance to go to an event of any sort to Winshape Retreat, JUST GO. Seriously, y’all. Just make it happen. Winshape Marriage weekend is held at the Winshape Retreat on the mountain campus of Berry College. We usually go to the Serving Marriages weekend in October every year. You can read more about their services here.
Reason #1: The Service
When you drive up to the gorgeous campus of Berry, you go through to the Mountain Campus and you’ll see the entrance. Upon entering the parking lot, the staff greets you and takes your bags for you! It’s better than being at ANY Chick-fil-a because ANYTHING you ask them… the answer is, “Yes, my pleasure.” And they mean it! Everyone with a name tag greets you with a smile. It’s a real smile, not those fakey fake smiles that sometimes we put on to head to church. Look, there are even umbrellas at each exit in case you need them!
Reason #2: The Food
Y’all, seriously… I’d go just for the food. No, it’s not Chick-fil-a every day. I wish I would have take pictures of the dishes there. Grrr! I was so distracted by the food that I forgot I was gonna write about this later! Pork tenderlion, steak, salads, soups, bacon, eggs, waffles, key lime pie, reeces pie, burgers, and more will be served to you! This is not industrial food either. Oh, and did I mention the Ice Dream machine… yep!
I like mine with Reece’s Pieces in it! And oh, are you thirsty? These are in every building…
Reason #3: The Accommodations
You will find the rooms nothing short of spectacular. The history behind Winshape Retreat is amazing. If only Martha Berry could see it now, she’d be so proud. There are no TVs in the rooms by design. Winshape is a media free facility on purpose to help decrease distractions. The beds are super comfy and the bathrooms are huge. The showers have great water pressure (seriously, isn’t that what you want in a shower?) and we never ran out of hot water. The buildings there have so much character and history. During free time, you can take a drive to downtown Rome, GA or you can rent bikes for free on the Winshape campus, or just take a hike on the many marked trails in the area. One year, we were there during one of the Berry College equestrian events and we walked down the hill to enjoy it.
This is my sweet, obliging husband who took me into downtown Rome for some shopping. The shops down there are so cute! Check out my instagram post from one of the shops there.
Reason #4: Program Content
The weekend we attended was Winshape Marriage – Serving Marriages. The speakers they bring in are always amazing and they will build programs with relevant content that will enrich your life and grow your marriage. I encourage each married couple to get away once a year so you can unplug and reconnect.
I know, right!!!?
Reason #5: The ability to unplug

Winshape creates an environment to help you unplug from this busy world and reconnect with the one you love. There are many programs available so it’s time for you to pick one and go! The breakfast usually starts at 8 and programs start at 9 so there’s no early mornings. The grounds and scenery are amazing.
Keep it Simple,
