“Restore” retreats offer a refuge and temporary withdrawal from reality to facilitate personal restoration. With unique tools, activities and community, we help you restore purpose, passion and above all, peace.

What will you experience at Restore Retreats?
Girl Power


Life is hard, but it's better when you're surrounded by the right people. Those who attend "Restore" are ready to cheer each other on, encourage growth, and laugh together. We leave our masks at home and come as we are: imperfect, honest and eager to make the most out of life with a bit of grit, tenacity, and many tempting treats!


Fun and Adventure

What's a getaway without some adventure? When you're with us, your only task is to have more fun than you planned on! With choices including ATV rides, skeet shooting, hiking, horse-back riding, biking, tons of indoor games, cold plunges and soaking in a hot tub, we've got options for everyone. Yes, even you!


Practical Tools

Inspiring workshops and conversations are powerful, but without practical ways to implement change, they can also be fleeting. We thrive on giving you results-focused frameworks that will give you the momentum and support you need to create real change in your life. You set the goal, we help you take the steps - even beyond the retreat.

Where are Restore retreats held?

Royal Creek Ranches is located 45 minutes southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah. Standing on over 1,100 acres in the Stansbury Mountains, you will feel like you are worlds away from the stresses and influences of daily life. You'll enjoy fresh mountain air, star filled skies at night and picturesque views in the daylight. In every direction, you will be surrounded with beauty that brings peace and invites adventure.

You'll love the culinary staff! They'll pamper you with exquisite food options that cater to all preferences/diets.


Although nestled in rustic territory, your accommodations will be laced with luxury and comfort. We offer options for a private room, shared room, or group rate rooms, giving you sleeping options to fit your comfort level.
