Come and experience the stillness and peace of this thin place, this haven by Pakenham’s historic five arches stone bridge.
We have carved walking paths through the wooded sides of our hill overlooking the Mississippi River with benches for those who crave some solitude in nature.
There is a wonderful octagonal cedar gazebo in the woods capable of holding a small group or a soul or two, gently swinging in hammocks. We also have a private and secluded access to the water for those who like to sit out on a dock or go for a swim. And in the winter you can curl up by a warm fire in the lounge.
The Promise House is our retreat space and comfortably supports anywhere from 4 to 20 people with two well-appointed larger rooms, tables, wi-fi, bathrooms and a small kitchen. We are happy to look after all your food needs and we have rooms available in the main house for those wanting to stay over for a night or two or three. Though we are not equipped with a commercial kitchen, all our food is prepared in our large country kitchen with love and attention to detail.
Our haven will become your spiritual home while you are here and we will take care of as many of the details as you like.
We conduct retreats for groups and individuals and we are available to support your retreat with anything from coaching and spiritual direction through to leading and facilitating sessions.
Some sample retreats include Silent Meditation, Develop Your Intuition, Renew Your Spiritual Connection, Nature and Creativity, Stress – Who Me? Starting Your Healing Path and The Beauty and Light of Fall Colors: Contemplative Art Retreat.
