Retreat House

Nestled beneath an ancient gnarled oak and an aged whispering pine, the retreat house overlooks a lake, with a wonderful view from the wooden rocker in the chapel — without the cold or mosquitoes. The living room wood stove provides ample warmth, although there are handmade quilts in all five guest rooms, of which three are suitable for a couple, and two are single rooms. Advent time is honored with creches from around the world.

Mind, body, heart and all five senses are nourished while at Still Waters. A 1,400-volume library of cataloged video, print and audio books can feed the mind and heart during your stay or be checked out to take home, while a modest collection of music can soothe your ears. A guitar and autoharp allow you to express your heart and painting easels prove that “no one has to be an artist to paint their prayer.”

A full kitchen, stocked with coffee, tea, ordinary condiments and salad dressings is available for your use. Brother Martin, the cookie jar, is always ready to share — he reminds us that cookies are much like grace — they are only a blessing when fully received.

Small groups are welcomed regularly in the retreat house; however, all are invited to respect the silence and solitude some guests may be seeking.  If you would like to come for a few hours or several days, please contact us.
