A note from Erik's Retreat
Updated 06/25/20


Travelers' Choice
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.

Traveling is great. Traveling and supporting a cause we believe in is even better! The accommodations were spacious and comfortable. The staff was very helpful. I believe the sign of a good visit is that you want to go back again and we do!

During a deeply painful time for the city of Minneapolis, the country, and the world, I am grateful to have chosen this comfortable hotel. Sparkling clean, gracious service, beautiful neighborhood. Don't hesitate to book a room at Erik's Retreat.

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!

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.
