Private Retreats

Find the time for reflection and spiritual reconnection.

A private retreat of one or several days allows you to take some peaceful time away from everyday activities. This time can be spent in praying, reading, journaling, walking, resting, visiting our library, and other quiet activities that restore the soul. Your time here is your own.

Many of our guests come for the quiet peace of the land: 61 acres high above the Hudson River. They enjoy the gardens and trails, visit the Healing Hut and Labyrinth, and enjoy the magical views of the Hudson River and valley. Some enjoy the quiet corners of the center and explore personal relationships with God in the Chapel or reading room. You can choose to conduct your private retreat in silence, or not.

During your retreat, you can enjoy a comfortable, affordable, private guest room with a sink. Showers and bathrooms are shared in each residential hallway.
