Arrival

Check-in time is strictly between 2:00-4:00 pm on Mondays and Fridays only. Our Retreatant Care Manager will greet you in the office upon your arrival for orientation and escort you to the retreat cabin. The long dirt driveways into the cabins are rough and unfinished and range in length from 1/8 to 1/2 mile. They are not passable by car during snow or mud, so you may be required to hike your gear into or out of the cabin. In case of severe weather or late arrival, you may be required to delay your check-in.

Departure

Check-out time is strictly between 10:00 am and 12:00pm on Mondays and Fridays only. When you check-in, you will arrange a check-out time with the retreatant care manager.  If the roads are passable, you will be picked up at that time at your cabin. If there is snow or mud, you will need to bring your things to the box where groceries are delivered at the designated check-out time.
