What is a Retreat?

Most people interested in buying a property for a retreat are looking for some combination of:
  • A water source
  • Small to large acreage
  • Land for pasture or gardens
  • Good topsoil
  • A rural area
  • A private, secluded property, which would be out of the way of any sort of trouble
  • The ability to defend the retreat, in the case of a total collapse, in which crime becomes rampant.
  • Potential for solar, wind, or microhydro power.
