Artcation Idea #1 - Art camp for adults

With summer on the horizon, I start thinking about ideas for my summer Artcation. This art camp for adults sounds pretty ideal. Problem? It exists only in my imagination...

Each camper is housed in their own spacious, contemporary barn-style structure, which has as a large studio and a small living area with a bed, bathroom, and kitchen...

Within your barn studio is a huge closet, stocked with every art supply you can think of.  Just imagine your favorite art store as your closet... 


The grounds are lush, quiet, and peaceful. If you need a break to clear your head, you can hike, swim, or a go for a lazy canoe ride... 

Your meals, coffee, and snacks are delivered to your studio at any time of day or night. Or, if you prefer company, you can dine in the mess hall... 

I actually did some research last year to see if something like this exists and couldn't find anything. Perhaps someone who really knows how to make these sorts of things spring to life can make it a reality. 
Anyone?

There used to be an artists retreat up in Vermont. I've got the info around here somewhere. They pretty much lock you away, take away your phone and you create art in your space.

Dear Ral,

Your retreat exists! There are lots of artist colonies. I know the names of some big ones: Yaddo, MacDowell Colony, but if you explore I think you will find many many.

Your friend,
A
