Renting Manzanita Village

For Your Group or Organization

For Your Workshop or Organizational Retreat

Contact Us

We sometimes make Manzanita Village available for outside programs.

We have room for about 30 people. Larger groups can be accommodated if people are willing to camp or use outside accommodation, local air B and B, etc.
Please contact us well in advance for available dates.

We can provide food, or you can bring your own cook to work with us. Prices will vary accordingly.

Please note that we are NOT a typical conference center. The facilities are comfortable but rustic. There are dorm rooms available and 3 private rooms for individuals or couples. There is also a separate hermitage available.

As there is no permanent staff here visiting groups are asked to help with meal setup and cleanup before and after meals, and with general cleanup prior to leaving the retreat.

Water comes from our own well. There are many trails for hiking.
