The Mission of Guest House is to create opportunities for transformational work and provide a nurturing environment for those seeking to develop human potential and enrich the world.
Guest House is a delightful retreat and conference center in the scenic Connecticut River Valley. We offer spacious guest rooms with private bathrooms, superb cuisine, and amenities that range from a grand piano in our lobby to wireless internet in every room. Guests can focus on their work without distractions, while enjoying a nurturing and comfortable environment.
Our facility is a beautifully renovated country inn on private wooded land, adjacent to a state forest with hiking trails and two neighboring lakes. Conveniently located midway between New York City and Boston, Guest House is easily reachable via major highways or by train.
Wireless internet and cell phone service are available throughout the building, and there is elevator service to all guest room floors. A quiet, restful atmosphere can be maintained for spiritual groups who wish to have periods of silence.
Guest House has meeting rooms of varying sizes and many small breakout spaces where individuals can work together. Our staff will provide you with unmatched service and can customize your event precisely to your group’s needs. Conference packages can include audio/visual equipment. Yoga mats and meditation cushions are available.
“I thought this would just be a ‘space’ we would use. This felt like we were guests in someone’s home. The food was prepared with love and care, the rooms decorated as if real people live in them. It was amazing.”
