What is the distance from the Bozeman airport to Howlers Inn?  About 17 miles.  Groceries are about the same distance.  Click here for the Howlers Inn directions page.

What is the weather like in November?  The average high is 43 and the average low is 21.  Please note it can get colder than this.

What type of clothing should I bring?  Warm hat, warm gloves, warm socks, warm coat, warm shoes/boots, and thermals.  Bring layers as you will be spending time indoors and outdoors.  If you go to Yellowstone, the weather is cooler there.  A What to Bring List will be provided.

What are the rooms like?  Each guest room has their own bathroom, microwave and small fridge.  Kim has stayed at the Howlers Inn before and this is an incredible place!  Consider yourself blessed just to even stay one night, let alone for a four day retreat!

Will I be sharing a room?  Please expect to share a room as there is limited availability of single rooms.  Kim will determine the best room for you based on information you provide on the registration form.  Please know that all rooms are amazing in their own way.

Can I stay elsewhere and still attend the retreat?  If you want to attend the retreat, you need to stay at the inn.  With all retreat participants staying at the same place, it keeps the pack together and the energy harmonious and flowing.

Can my spouse or friend stay with me?  They are welcome to apply to attend the retreat.  Only those attending the retreat can stay at the inn as it’s important to create and maintain the best energetic environment possible for those that are answering the call of the wolf.

Can I stay more than the 4 nights?  Yes, you can stay before and/or after the 4 nights of November 11-14.  If you want to attend the Yellowstone trip on Monday, 16th, you will need lodging somewhere for the night of Sunday, 15th.  You will need to let Kim know when you complete your registration form.  Additional nights will be paid to the inn at the end of the retreat.

What amenities does Howlers Inn have?  The ground floor has the hot tub, Finnish sauna, and TV/video area.   Click here to learn more.

What if I have special dietary needs?  You will provide this information on the registration form.

What do I do for dinner?  Breakfast and lunch are provided.  Dinner is on your own.  You have a microwave and fridge in your room.  You can use the kitchen to cook dinner if you want to.  You can go out to eat, though we can’t predict road conditions.  You may want to get some groceries for dinner for a few nights or all four.

What will each day be like at the retreat?  Amazing of course!  Each day will vary but will include meditating, connecting with the wolves, diving deep and so much more.  The wolves will guide you, inspire you, teach you, and motivate you.  (Brothers, Chinook and Tahoe, pictured here.)  Breakfast will be at 8 am and we will start at 9 am.  We will end around 6:30 pm.  Dinner is on your own.  Saturday evening will be the fire ceremony and we will start that around 8 pm.  Sunday we will start at 8:30 am and plan to end around 2 pm.  If you are going to Yellowstone on Monday with us, you will be leaving quite early so that we arrive in the park by sunrise.

Do I have to go up and down lots of stairs?  There is a flight of stairs to get to the retreat area, dining area, and guest rooms.  You will need to go down the stairs to go to the wolf enclosures.  There is a lovely wolf deck viewing area on the main floor if you decide you don’t want to go down the stairs to the wolf enclosures every time.  You will be in the presence of the wolves from either location.

What happens if I get snowed on?  Enjoy!  The wolves will be enjoying it.  We will be spending time indoors and outdoors.  Should it snow and it get to be too much for us, we can adjust our day as needed.  The wolves and Mother Earth will teach you to go with the flow.
