It All Started With A Passion

Wilder-Nest Retreats was started by Shellie & Stephanie. This mother - daughter duo made their dream a reality. They officially launched "Wilder-Nest Retreats" in 2008 and quickly started sharing their passion with many other interested individuals staying at the retreat center.

To every problem, Shellie always found the perfect solution. Her determination and mental hardiness allowed her to operate and maintain the retreat center. Not only was Shellie a mother, she was a mentor, a wife, and an entrepreneur. While she may not be here with us now, Wilder-Nest Retreats attributes its quality of being a true "retreat to a less complicated time" to Shellie. It's hard to forget someone who gave you so much to remember. After Shellie passed away, Stephanie has striven forth and carried on with their dream of maintaining a retreat center.

Stephanie has two kids, Ali and Austin. While she is a busy mom raising two rambunctious children, she is also taking care of the retreat center. Now that Ali is older, she is helping her mother take care of the retreat center. Ali keeps the passion of her grandmother's dream at Wilder-Nest Retreats.

Stephanie also owns a franchise for Silvermine Subs. You can say Stephanie always has something to do, whether it's working at the retreat center or at Silvermine. She may be busy, but she will always make your stay the best it could possibly be. She also keeps her prices lower then the competitors, not because she wants more business, but because she wants everyone to experience the true passion that her and her mother created.
