Frequently Asked Questions
When should I plan to arrive and depart at ReMe - The Sandhills?
Because we only host our ReMe Experiences in locations that we know and love, if your schedule permits, we highly recommend adding a day or two to the beginning and end of your trip. We promise that you'll be glad that you did, as you'll be less rushed and more inclined to enjoy all that there is to see along the way.
Where will we be staying?
Each ReMe Experience will provide you with a unique list of lodging options, please visit the page for each event to view these.
Who will be teaching and what classes will be offered?
Jodi Ohl and Jean Skipper, the founders and hosts of ReMe Retreats, will be teaching regularly during our ReMe Experiences. They'll also frequently collaborate in the classroom for a treasured ReMe Tradition that can be more fun than you could possibly imagine. To learn a bit more about each of them, please use the tabs above or click on their names.
Additional Artists may be added to our ReMe Lineup in the future. If you have any questions or special requests about this, please contact us anytime.
Will there be time at ReMe for Rest and Relaxation?
Absolutely! We work hard to ensure a balanced mix of activities and relaxation for our guests. Classes will be broken into manageable segments with breaks between each. You'll also find several optional activities in each of our itineraries.
While we'd love for you to participate in everything with us, if a nap or a bit of solo exploring is calling, we'll completely understand.
How many guests will be in attendance?
Our maximum number of guests varies by event, and we're working to increase availability at ReMe Experiences while still maintaining the friendly intimate environment that you’ve grown to expect and love with ReMe Retreats.
With such limited availability, and given our existing waiting lists, reservations will be accepted as they are received, and we encourage you to claim your space early for your very own ReMe Experience.
What type of clothing should I bring?
We recommend dressing in layers, and casual and comfortable will always fit the bill for our time together, especially in The Studio. You’ll also want to bring a dress-casual outfit or two for possible outings.
What can I expect in the classroom?
You’re going to love our classes! We’ll provide you with your own creative space for the duration of your visit. Our cheery classrooms will serve as the home for our classes for the week, and we’ll have plenty of room to spread out and create. Once you settle into your workspace there, you won’t need to pack, unpack, or relocate for the remainder of our time together.
We’ll have plenty of tools and supplies to share, and we encourage you to bring your own favorites too. Please visit our class descriptions under the tabs at the top of this page for more specific details about what you might like to bring for each class.
If your heart desires, you’ll also have the opportunity to purchase supplies and original artwork from our on site ReMe Store. We LOVE our art supplies and vintage finds, and we’re looking forward to sharing our treasures with you.
Can you accommodate meals for a vegetarian?
Absolutely! Jean's a vegetarian, so you'll be in good company.
Can you accommodate my gluten free diet?
Yes we can! If you'll discuss your preferences with us, we'll be happy to provide you with gluten free options.
Can you accommodate my food allergy?
Please understand that your health and well being are our primary concerns. While we aren't able to offer meal plans for specific food allergies. If you'd like to discuss your particular situation, please contact us ReMe@ReMeRetreats.com .
Is there anything else?
Surprises are good, and we have oodles of them in store for you! Mum’s the word for now, and in the meantime, we hope that you enjoy every minute of the anticipation.
Will additional ReMe Experiences be held in other locations?
Possibly. Our long term dream for ReMe is one of managed growth in North Carolina. While we're actively seeking opportunities that will allow us to accommodate additional guests, we'll also strive to preserve the intimate nature of each event.
Our history was built on our all inclusive ReMe Retreats, and they remain the flagship of our offerings.
In 2017, we'll also be adding "ReMe Presents..."., and our first will be Absolutely Abstracts with Jodi Ohl. Think of these mini-retreats as an intensive with your favorite instructor. Slightly less inclusive than our retreats, these ReMe Experiences will provide you with three days in the classroom, most supplies, breakfast, lunch, and beverages during the day, and a few of the extra surprises for which we've become known.
