Family retreats are designed for family groups of 10 or less. We are open to group retreats again as well! See the Group Leader Resources page under the Rental Info tab for group details. 

  • Farmhouse or Loft: Minimum two night stay. Wi-Fi is provided so that you can continue to work and study remotely while on retreat. You'll have a fully equipped kitchen and will only need to bring ingredients. Bed linens and towels are provided.

  • Cabin Village: Meals are included in the Family Retreat rate. Wi-Fi is available. Cabins are modern-rustic with heat and a half-bath, plus a large modern bathhouse nearby.

  • Sukkah Village: Bring your own camping stove or campfire-ready meals. Electricity and running water available.

We encourage you to follow guidelines and updates shared by the CDC, VDH, and Governor Northam’s office - wash your hands thoroughly and regularly, avoid touching your face, follow the recommended personal distance of 6ft, and to avoid non-essential travel and stops at businesses. Consult your doctor if you are considered to be high risk. Most importantly, stay home if you are showing symptoms of illness or may have been exposed to COVID-19.

Staff are on-site and can be reached by radio. There is a stationary two-way radio in each space. The Farmhouse and Loft each have a landline phone and Wi-Fi, and a landline phone and Wi-Fi are available in the Cabin Village in case of emergency.
