Why We Exist

While the demand for quality retreat sites is extremely high throughout California, there are few facilities that provide the wide range of facilities that appeal to a broad range of clientele from both the non-profit community and for profit corporate community. Often, when non-profit community groups find a retreat center that is within their price range they must book these retreat sites up to two years in advance. Many times, the question of whether a retreat center offers the type and size of facility the group really needs is immaterial; if space is available it is booked. This often forces non-profit organizations to accept less than desirable facilities or schedules, or to endure facilities that are either unaccustomed to various non-profit groups or are, at best, tolerant. Our goal is to change this! As part of our commitment to build and foster community, we are leading the development of a retreat center owned and operated by and for the non-profit community and non-profit friendly organizations and businesses.
