The Retreat Barn
Our main building is a beautifully renovated barn that sleeps sixteen people on two floors. A large open hardwood meeting room surrounded by windows is adjacent to the dining room, couch area, and wood stove. Off the main room are three shared dorm rooms, each including four large built-in beds with privacy curtains and personal reading lights.
Just down the hall are two full shared baths, the kitchen, and our food serving area including water cooler and tea counter. On the lower floor, near the pond, garden, and sheep pen, are two more dorm rooms, with two beds each and a shared full bath. (lower rooms are available to groups larger than 12 people)
The large open room, dining, and sitting areas can be arranged in any way that suits your needs. We have folding chairs, cushions, blankets, and back-jacks, as well as a piano, drums, chimes, other percussion instruments, and a stereo system. There are many lighting options with dimmers and three different sources of heat, including a central wood stove. Many windows and doors can be opened on both the south and north sides of the building to bring in cool air on hot days. The retreat barn is animal free and the kitchen is meat free.
Each bedroom on the main floor opens out onto a large covered back porch overlooking the sheep pasture, apple orchard, ponds, and organic gardens. On the porch you will find rocking chairs and tables for solitude or small group meetings. In front of the retreat barn, next to the flower and vegetable gardens, are picnic tables on the lawn.
