Retreat and Learning Center

The Cove is a uniquely nourishing setting for reconnecting with Life and what really matters. A retreat and learning center comprised of artistic water front cabins, garden cottages and excellent meeting facilities–it is a wonderful place for both personal and group retreats. During your stay, you will be sustained by the natural beauty of the land, the garden-centered cuisine and the stewardship of a caring staff dedicated to the awakening and full blossoming of the human spirit.


The retreat center provides many options for folks looking for the perfect getaway cabin, and the many experiential retreats that happen here are designed to help people find their way back to a more connected, more fulfilling, and more abundant way of living.

Join Us

The retreat center’s 58 acres include a small working farm, gardens, walking trails, a 30 acre lake with canoes, and private meeting facilities. Retreat accommodations range from private retreat style rooms and camp cabins to well-appointed 2 and 3 BR cottages. Whether on the water or overlooking the goats and gardens, we bring nature to your front porch.

Come join us at the Cove – we’ll save you a place at the table.
