Our facilities are smoke-free and pet-free.
For making a retreat on one of the levels of our main Center, one needs bring only personal items and food for meals. Each level has a fully equipped kitchen for meal preparation. There is a supermarket two miles away in Pittsburg. If preferred, nearby restaurants could be used. Towels and bed linens are provided.
Our architecturally unique Rustic Hermitage has a quadruple cathedral ceiling, no interior walls, and rooms defined by differing floor levels. Four modules create a sitting room, chapel, bedroom, and a combined study/kitchen area equipped with a small refrigerator and a two-burner hot plate — all within a 16-foot square area. There is electricity and heat, while water is supplied by a thermos. There is an environmentally-friendly chemical toilet.
This Amish-built one-room structure duplicates what many of our great-grandparents called home. Without electricity or running water, light is provided by two oil-burning lamps, heat comes from a wood-burning stove, and water is carried in. The only compromises are a propane cooking burner and an environmentally friendly indoor toilet. This new spiritual opportunity is for the more adventuresome retreatant.
The Hermitage Spiritual Retreat Center is a not-for-profit corporation
governed by a Board of Directors of many Christian traditions,
open to all persons seeking spiritual renewal.
