We’re located in Pennsylvania.  We found your facility online and we took a chance and booked our group with you.  Not only did we love the facility and the staff, we’re booking next year’s retreat right now!  What a wonderful atmosphere you have – we felt so cared for.  Thank you for making our stay so special.

Thank you to the women of the spiritual center who took such great care of us during the visit of McCormick Theological Seminary faculty and board members. Beautiful grounds, spacious meeting rooms, good food and gracious hospitality. Thank you for all you have done. You made my work easy.
