Private Retreats

Find the time for reflection and serenity that you need to connect with your deeper self in the calm environment at the Center at Mariandale, where we welcome private retreatants.

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, drawing in our creative room, and other quiet activities that restore the soul.

Spiritual direction can also be included, if desired.

We ask that you make a reservation for a personal retreat at least 14 days in advance of your arrival, as our guest rooms are often filled quickly by our programs.

Many of our guests come for the quiet peace of our center land. 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 our Creativity Room, and take their time to think while painting, taking photos, or drawing. You can choose to conduct your private retreat in silence, or not.

During your retreat, you can enjoy a comfortable, affordable, private guest room and three delicious, healthy meals a day, served in our dining room. After dinner you can read, sit in the Chapel, meditate, or walk. Your time is your own.


Private Retreat Weekdays (Sunday through Thursday nights):  $85 per night (includes 3 meals)

Private Retreat Weekends: (Friday and Saturday nights):           $95 per night (including 3 meals)
