How We Help

We know that suddenly losing someone you love can be overwhelming and feel devastating to a family. A common experience is to want to seek an escape, if even for a short time, from everything. In the midst of grief, however, the details and financial burden of trying to plan anything can make a retreat almost impossible. That’s where we want to help – we will take care of all of the details, all you have to do is show up.

Our Story

Suddenly losing my husband of 21 years was devastating to my world. Not only did I have to deal with all of the countless financial, government, and legal forms, I had to figure out how to do life for me and my kids without him, all while being enveloped in grief.  I came to a point that I just wanted to run away from everything and find a place to breathe, if only for a few short days, but even trying to plan that was overwhelming.  After many conversations with friends who also lost someone close – a daughter, a father and brother at a young age, a best friend – we found it to be a common experience to try to find a short escape.

With that motivating us, we created Solace – The M L Davis Foundation, for the purpose of providing a place where families could go to find some rest in the midst of their grief without the financial or mental burden of planning a trip.  After extensive searching, we found what is a perfect property in the heart of the Texas hill-country.  With amazing views and quiet isolation just 5 minutes outside of the charming town of Marble Falls, we have created the Solace Retreat.  Our hope is to provide an all-inclusive experience for families to come rest, relax, and hopefully, just breathe.
