Facilities

Our facilities consist of two houses:

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.

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.

 

Details

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.

fees

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.

spiritual guidance

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.
