Certificate of Excellence
At Erik's Retreat, the astonishing abilities that young adults with autism possess are celebrated. We turn these abilities into employment opportunities where this deserving population gets to share something they are passionate about with others while earning a living wage, working on their social skills, and having the dignity of living life on their terms. We encourage the entire community to support our mission by either staying with us as guests or participating on an Erik's Minnesota Adventures tour. Our purpose is to expose all that those with autism can do versus what they cannot with our moderately-priced guest rooms and tour pricing.

Erik’s Retreat is a hidden gem in the Edina/Richfield area. Our room was large, beautifully appointed, and comfortable. A delicious continental breakfast was brought to our room exactly as ordered and right on time. Staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back again!

Property's Favorite Review
On a 3,000-mile road trip from Little Rock to Winnipeg and back, Erik's Retreat was by far our favorite place we stayed! The warm welcome, our delightful concierge, the gorgeous surroundings, a delicious and healthful breakfast delivered to our room (even more appreciated because it was safe for me with my severe gluten intolerance), and a spacious, beautiful, modern, comfortable room combined with the inspirational and important purpose of this hotel make it beyond compare, in my opinion. I encourage anyone who will be in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area to read about Erik's Retreat on their website and book a stay there. It's a win-win; you get a fabulous, luxurious stay at a beautiful, welcoming property while contributing to a very worthy cause. The cost is no different than most other hotels, and in treating yourself, you are helping others.

We had a wonderful stay. Our suite was clean and cozy, with everything we could've needed. The building is fascinating and in a quiet neighborhood, but not too far from dining and entertainment. Will definitely stay again.

This place is a true gem and I encourage readers to book a room here. Check in is between 3-5 pm and check out is at 11:00. They serve a breakfast to your room between 6:30 and 8:00 am. PLUS it's super quiet as the rooms are not your typical hotel room. I will stay here from now on when visiting MN
