I had a wonderful experience at the Urban Art Retreat. Dianna was helpful, supportive, and resourceful and I would highly recommend this place as a retreat destination in Chicago. I stayed at the retreat during the winter, so the landscape was not as lush but the space was warm and comforting with lots of good books!
