We welcome retreatants to our guest houses year-round and are happy to share the beauty, peace, silence, and solitude of our surroundings with you.
The Stone House
The Stone House, located at the bottom of a hill, is a five-minute walk from the Abbey. It is an old country farmhouse with three bedrooms and can be used for a group of up to 8 people. It is open from March 1st until October 31st.
All guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ, for he himself will say: I was a stranger and you welcomed me.RB, Chapter 53, The Reception of Guests
The Retreat House
The Retreat House is on the same level as the monastery, only a short walk from the main entrance to the Abbey and to the Guest Chapel. It has 2 bedrooms and a sitting room which can also be used as a bedroom. The house is open all year except in December.
We provide basic food supplies, and retreatants cook their own meals. Towels and linens are provided also. You are most welcome to come to the guest chapel for the Eucharist and for the Liturgy of the Hours. There are plenty of places to walk on our large, pleasant and peaceful property.
There is no set fee per night, just a free-will offering. Reservations need to be made quite far in advance, especially for the summer months and for weekends.
We do not offer directed retreats. If you would like to speak to a sister during your retreat, mention this to the guest mistress when you are making your reservation. Our chaplain too is often available for spiritual guidance. Our retreat facilities are primarily suited for those who want time for silence, solitude, and prayer. We look forward to welcoming you.
