Would you like to plan a solitary private retreat as an individual?
“Come away… and rest a while” (Mk.6:31).
Treat yourself to this unique opportunity in a busy world. Take some time for your own private retreat — the time and space can reinvigorate your body, mind and spirit.
Choose one day or several days for refreshment and renewal. Single rooms and shared rooms are available, meals are extra as available. Our chapel, labyrinth and grounds are open for reflection during daylight hours. Spiritual Direction is available to all guests upon prior arrangement.
The cost for a single room is $85 per night, a shared room (for 2) $110 per night. Meals extra as available.
Please call ahead to reserve your room and meals. You may also schedule spiritual direction during your stay.

Do you need a facilitator?
We Have A Wide Selection of Facilitated Retreats
Our retreat facilitators can work with you to create customized programs for sacramental preparation, graduation, RCIA, parish and/or school staff days of renewal, and Labyrinth walks.
Some examples include:
First Communion: Second-grade students enjoy a day that includes a short movie, a craft, a behind the scenes tour of the chapel, and baking bread for each child to share at dinner with their family.
8th Grade Graduations, other student milestones: Faith sharing with scripture, crafts, games, reflection time in the peace of our gardens, and a closing blessing rite in our chapel.
RCIA: A day of reflection on the candidate’s journey of faith with the scripture from the Easter Vigil, with teams & sponsors.
School Faculty/Administration Retreats: Facilitators lead groups in prayer services, rituals, reflection, and sharing.
Labyrinth: A docent presents a brief history of the labyrinth as a walking prayer tool and facilitates a labyrinth walk for your group at our outdoor, 11-circuit Labyrinth Bonaventure.
