The Hundredth Hill Writer and Musician Retreats provide creatives 50 acres of pristine woodlands and four original, upcycled, and finely-crafted residences for week- and month-long retreats in the rolling hills just outside Bloomington, Indiana. The retreat’s mission is to offer quiet, inspirational space for artists and leaders to create, think, reconnect with their work, and make progress on world-changing projects. Artists may apply as individuals or as a 4-person team.
Musician and composer Krista Detor and sound engineer David Weber founded The Hundredth Hill in response to a world in need of imaginative solutions to current social and environmental crises.
Residences include a refurbished Airstream, a loft featuring a twisting handcrafted staircase built with branches from the property, a wheelchair-accessible cabin, and a cottage filled with delightful, upcycled features. Gathering spaces include a rustic yet comfortable barn with full-kitchen, restroom, eclectic furniture, loft, stage, and room to host 25-30 participants. A professional DIY recording studio is available on the property for an additional charge.
Meals are not prepared for artists, but all units include kitchenettes with refrigerator, sink, microwave, induction cooktop, air fryer, panini grill, coffee maker, and coffee, tea, and spices. Retreats include a fully stocked pantry and fridge in each individual residence for making meals, and access to laundry facilities.
