At the end of a quiet road in Cabot, Vermont is the counseling office and wilderness area for Helfand Retreats LLC. With year-round babbling brooks, fields, forest, and seasonal gardens, this magical 1850’s farm provides the perfect backdrop for all Marriage Quest retreats. Couples stay at a local bed and breakfast, at an old inn, or in a modern hotel. Consider an extra day to relax, hike, ski, go kayaking or antiquing, tour the Cabot Creamery, or just shop for local maple syrup and other Vermont specialties.
