During your stay

Guests are assigned a Volunteer Greeter who will meet you upon arrival, welcome, and orient you to the space. They'll also be available to you by phone for the duration of your stay. If you need anything, they are just a phone call away. Additionally, the Executive Director may be on site and is most happy to be of assistance.

Because we are a small Retreat Center, the number of guests may vary from day-to-day. It's possible you may have the luxury of being our only guest for all or part of your stay.
