Private Retreats

“Let all guests coming to the monastery be received as Christ himself.” This injunction from the Rule of St Benedict inspires us to welcome everyone who comes to the monastery. 

For those who wish a longer immersion in the monastic atmosphere of silence and prayer, we offer the possibility of private retreats in our two guest cottages for a stay of a few days or up to one week in duration.

The retreat cabins are not available from Thanksgiving until Easter.

Reservations may be made by letter or by email:

Unfortunately, no retreat reservations are currently being accepted for our guest cabins, since we have found it necessary to do a large amount of maintenance work this year.  We will not be accepting any retreatants until further notice.

Offerings are on a free-will basis according to means; we do ask for a $40 non-refundable deposit to ensure the space for you.  We also request a referral from a pastor or spiritual guide for first-time retreatants.

Chaperones are required for mixed groups where participants are less than 21 years of age.

We will ask you to tidy up the cabin before leaving.
