We are Paul & Marlene Hempstead. Each of us has been working in our fields for over 30 yrs. At the core of WMS is PT, LMT, Rehabilitation & Education to treat mind, body & spirit. We opened Wellness Management Services (WMS) in 2007. We offer many types of therapies that are customizable to meet your individual needs.

We have been dreaming of this Retreat for years, and in 2013 the journey began. We parked on the road and walked onto the property with a damsel fly sitting on Marlene’s shoulder for over 20 minutes.

We were surprised by the silence. Almost as if the property was asleep. In 2014 we broke ground and our dream began to reveal itself. In 2015 we moved into our home. In 2016 we held our first Retreat, working from the lower portion of our home. We built a labyrinth and a love garden that grew from contributions of our neighbors and friends.

In 2020 we finished moving our Practice, WMS, to Loon Pond, and fully merged WMS into Retreat at Loon Pond.

We are completing a second building, The Lodge at Loon Pond. This will provide a venue to host many events, with overnight capability. There will be Community Room with a full kitchen, perfect for Weekend Retreats, Bridal showers, Birthday celebrations, Weekend getaway and more!

Our Mission

We provide clients and guests with a beautiful environment to heal and learn to maintain well-being. Our approach is to assist in the process of healing but, also provide information and care to maintain and enhance well-being according to each individual situation.
