Peace & Quiet (Individual)

Individual Retreats & Sabbaticals

…for those looking to sink into the solitude and simplicity of nature, away from the fast pace of life.  Whether it’s time to write, read, walk, sleep, commune, discern, connect or rejuvenate, “Peace & Quiet”  gives you the space you need just to “be.” 

Our 97 acre farm is tucked deep in a holler on head water streams. Wooded hillside trails, rocky mountain ridges and winding country roads offer miles of walking and wildlife. Pick a season-you can’t go wrong.

Peace&Quiet Retreats invite you to try living simply and sustainably, like the founders of our Movement, Dorothy Day & Peter Maurin. Living in this manner is an expression of resisting mainstream’s consumerist tendencies and doing what we can to make life “on earth as it is in heaven.”

COST:  Although we are listed on Airbnb, there is no set cost for retreats, we don’t want personal finances to deter anyone from a retreat experience, so if you need to pay less than the cost listed, or have to pay with cash, please email us and say you found us through the website.

TRAVEL INFO: We are 40 minutes from Spencer, WV for groceries and hospital, and 1:20 from Charleston for Greyhound, Amtrak and Yeager Airport (CRW). $20 charge for transport to and from Charleston. If you’re driving, click here for directions.
