You are welcome to The House Of Blessings any time space is available. Please call for availability, but generally Sunday through Thursday is more peaceful as group retreats usually schedule on weekends.We provide a private room with either a private or semi-private bath, the use of a small kitchen stocked with dishes and cooking utensils, and a cozy dining area and reading room. There are several indoor and outdoor lounge areas. The meeting room contains a fireplace and a TV/VCR/DVD player. Rooms are furnished with linens and towels. You provide your own toiletries. The roads on the mountain are all cul-de-sacs with their own special beauty for pleasant walks.
The suggested donation is $40 per night per room for single occupancy and $60 per night per room for double occupancy. An advance deposit of 50% would be appreciated but “spur of the moment” decisions, depending on availability, are most welcome.
