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.
January 2021: Update on Private Retreats
We’re planning on offering private retreats on a limited basis, starting in late January 2021. We offer the same peaceful, private guest room and shared bathrooms at the center.
We are happy to provide pre-packaged continental breakfast items (oatmeal, cereal, yogurt, and seasonal fruit) but are unable to provide lunch and dinner services during your stay. We offer full “kitchen privileges,” so that you can bring your own food and beverages, store your items in our refrigerators, and use the microwave and coffeemaker as needed.
Upon departure, we ask that you discard any remaining items from the refrigerator you have not used during your stay. Should you choose to dine out, feel free to visit the local food venues or take advantage of the online food delivery services at your convenience, such as www.grubhub.com or www.doordash.com
Please note that you will need to adhere to local COVID-19 regulations: wearing a face mask and maintaining a social distance of six feet from others. All shared areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms, are cleaned daily, and will be cleaned after use.
To send us an inquiry about a private retreat, please fill out the form below with the dates you are interested in coming to Mariandale.
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.
Please Note: We ask that private retreatants comply with the following before making a reservation:
