Company Retreats

Corporate Retreats To Build Connection

When your goal is a successful company retreat, the most crucial aspect is the setting. One that inspires, motivates, and builds connection. One that rewards your team with a trip they won’t soon forget. 

At Bobs Lake Cottages & Escapes, our year-round venue promotes togetherness and camaraderie in a breathtaking setting on one of the most beautiful wilderness lakes in Ontario. Stay in our waterfront cottages on Bobs Lake, work together in our brightly lit conference space, and enjoy endless activities in a resort-like setting.

Ontario Company Retreats at Bobs Lake

Everything you need for a successful executive retreat is right here at Bobs Lake.

When you plan a team event at Bobs Lake in South Frontenac, Ontario, your experience includes an inspiring wilderness setting, beautiful lakefront accommodations, modern amenities ideal for effective work, memorable activities to encourage bonding, and the support of an experienced team and retreat facilitator. 

The Workspace

Everything You Need for Your Corporate Retreat

Gather with your team for productive conversation and collaboration in our comfortable, brightly lit conference space. A central fireplace provides the warmth and comfort you just can’t get in the office, and the lake views take your workspace to the next level.

Our wilderness setting is complemented by modern amenities that you can’t go without when you’re planning a company retreat, including access to high-speed internet so your workflow goes uninterrupted.

And we go beyond the necessities with all the extras that will make your executive retreat a memorable one, like a modern catering kitchen with two refrigerators, two ovens, and two dishwashers for one of our favorite team-building exercises, preparing a meal together. Or if you prefer the catering route, we can arrange that, too.

Contact us for details.

The Retreat

We’re More Than Just a Corporate Retreat Venue

Larry Hirschhorn, Ph.D., co-owner of Bobs Lake Cottages & Escapes, is a skilled team and retreat facilitator with over 40 years of experience in consulting organizations in the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors. He is the author of the well-regarded “Managing in the New Team Environment” and “The Workplace Within.” 

Larry works closely with the group’s leader and/or its retreat planning group to craft a retreat design that allows group members to tackle the issues they care most about. 

Working with Larry, team members establish shared expectations for their work, engage in whole-group and subgroup conversations, and take action based on their conversations. 

When requested, Larry can conduct pre-retreat interviews to help team members focus their work on their highest-priority challenges. If a team books with Bobs Lake Cottages & Escapes, Larry’s facilitation services are offered at a substantial discount.
