“Simple, restful, open space for the mind and body”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2008

Accommodations are simple but the natural landscape and garden, and programs are outstanding! Food has improved with more low carb vegetarian options. Look for great food when the cooking classes are happening! The massage and healers space is very rustic and simple as well but the practitioners are sincere and experienced.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2003

Mediation oriented facilities. Serene setting. Excellent service and staff. Rooms clean, neat, a bit spare - but then this is not about luxury. Vegetarian food. Good tasting but if you're not a vegan you may want to go into town to grab a burger. No alcohol. Great massage, yoga lessons etc. available from highly trained professionals, who live in the community. If you want to relax and be at peace this is a wonderful place to go.
