Personal Retreats

At Fern Creek one can breathe with the quiet comings and goings of life in the woods. Space opens for prayer, journaling, reading, and contemplation. A trail follows deer paths through the forest (old growth and new), a hammock strung between an oak and maple tree invites one to nap (for about five months of the year), and benches throughout Fern Creek invite you to come sit for awhile. 

In addition to meandering the woods, orchards, and fields at Fern Creek, the Prayer Cabin can be reserved for two to eight hours at a time (generally on Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays) and your time can be guided and include spiritual direction or not, and usually can include a simple soup lunch to be eaten alone in the cabin if desired. 


The two bedroom guesthouse apartment can be reserved for overnight retreats. These can be guided and include spiritual direction, or not.  Two to four individuals wanting to take a retreat together could do so in the guesthouse.
