"The Winter Getaway was exactly what I needed to recharge as a writer and start 2012 off on the right foot. From the supportive community to the Seaview atmosphere, I left feeling inspired. Now I can't wait to get back to work on the many projects I've lined up for myself. I only wish the Getaway could last all year!" ~ Cate, Pittsburgh, PA
