After reading these reviews I was a little concerned that I would go through electronic device withdrawal, but there is internet in the main lobby. The food and service was spectacular. They sold used books to read for $1 and also had an extensive book store with a wide range of interesting books. Most important, it was QUIET. Lots of... More

We were attending a concert in Orkney Springs that was part of the annual Shenandoah Music Festival so decided to spend the night there instead of driving home at a late hour. The Shrine Mont lodging is very basic (2 twin beds, no TV/radio/air conditioning) but as long as it's not TOO hot you can get by comfortably. Each room... More

Had not been back here for several years but we were invited to a Spring wedding. The rooms in Maryland House have been updated and as long as you enjoy a basic room (i.e., clean, private bathroom, no TV, no phone, no AC, limited closet storage) this is a great place to stay. And it is hard to beat the... More

We've come here numerous times in the past 6 years. Even though the accomodations are very basic, the staff is great. Over the years, they've been extremely responsive in requests for more fruit and healthy options. Their Saturday lunch menu is great. Scenic, restful -- this retreat location is loved by many!

Don't waste your time or money going here. You're gonna hate it. Unless you're a religious nerd, you won't have any fun here. The food stinks, the activities are overrated and don't really build character. The dorms look like they haven't been renovated in over a decade. Not to mention, it's in the middle of nowhere in a backwards part... More

The best way to disconnect from the world. No TV or phones. No A/C. Internet hot spots are available. The food is out of this world and you won't be disappointed. Meals are served family style "up the hill" and buffet at the "hotel". Bring a fan for warm evenings. Ask about the hay ride. Hikes for all ages and... More

My family went to Shrine Mont every year with our church. At first, my son who was 7 on his first visit, thought upon arrival that the place was horrible because there were no TV's and no luxuries of home. Bare bones furnishing . It surely was a shock to him, but after that first weekend he wanted to return... More

Shrine Mont is a wonderful place apart from the hectic world we live in, its like stepping back in time to a simpler place. Well the rooms are just old beds and there is no AC, Shrine Mont is about putting your self in touch with God and nature, and is a beautiful rest. I my self have been going... More

I have been going to Shrine Mont since I was a child, and there is no place like it. The town of Orkney Springs is very quaint and the old hotel is beautiful. It is a great place for a get-away and offers great hiking and good country food!

My entire family will arrive today, Jul 24, at Shrine Mont Conference Center for a one week family get together. It will be our 31st consecutive year to do this! Need I say more?
