Individual retreats – Tuesday evenings- Sundays

Retreats are special times set aside for paying particular attention to the presence of God in one’s life.


We gratefully receive what you are able to give for the use of this space.  Those who give more make it possible for us to serve those who give less. These costs do not meet our actual costs so any extra that can be offered is appreciated.

Individual retreats can be self-guided or directed. Those on a self-guided retreat are welcome to participate in the Hermitage framework of Morning Prayer and community meals. A directed retreat combines the listening ear of a Spiritual Director. Guidance may include meditation on a particular passage of scripture and reflection questions to help identify the Spirit’s presence at work in the retreatant. 

Note: The Hermitage is closed on Mondays (with some exceptions for long term guests, cabin guests–providing their own food, and groups) and food is currently not served on Tuesdays although reservations are welcome for Tuesday.

Current Hermitage schedule.

NOTE: The Hermitage is fully booked on weekends from October through mid November. There are many options still available from Tuesday-Friday mornings.

Retreat reservation request form

Would you like to meet with someone for spiritual direction during your retreat? (Requested amount of $50-75 per session.) Fees for sessions with David or Naomi Wenger should be paid directly to them.
We serve vegetarian meals and strive to accommodate guests' needs. With at least one week's notice, we are able to accommodate for gluten, corn, dairy, soy, and peanut free meals. If allergies are much more complicated than this, please bring food to supplement what we provide.
Massages are available through appointment with David Wenger (and paid to David directly). If you request a massage here we will reach out to David and he will get in touch with you regarding schedule availability during your stay.
