I spent 10 days in Woods Landing this winter for a writing retreat. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my time there. I had been struggling to finish a screenplay for which I'd been commisioned over the past eight months! Yikes. I went to Woods Landing and completed my draft in 10 days! The majestic surroundings and quiet solitude was indispensible to me. Let me tell you some of the details of my stay there, as I highly recommend this secluded hideaway.
I stayed in the guesthouse, which is a fully furnished three bedroom cabin with a gas range and a beautiful wood burning stove. I spent a lot of time in my cabin, cooking for myself, but occasionally went next door to the Woods Landing Bar and Cafe, for delicious green chile and some much needed human interaction from passing patrons.
It was great. The staff are fun and friendly and I really wouldn't have made my deadline without this trip up into the mountains. Thank you, Woods Landing staff and owners, for a wonderful time!
