Solitary Spiritual Retreat Centers
United States

The TAT Foundation guide to hermitages, cabins,
and other places for spiritual reflection.

Solitary Retreats: TAT Foundation's guide to hermitages, cabins, and other places for spiritual reflection.

This listing of retreat facilities will help you find a place of solitude to spend quiet time in reflection. Places offering only communal meals are included, and noted as such, for consideration of those doing fasting retreats. Places with shared kitchen facilities are included and noted as such. Facilities requiring previous instruction, active guidance or a particular belief-system are not included.

Many facilities require reservations, sometimes months ahead due to popularity. (For a last minute budget alternative, try an inexpensive motel room with kitchenette, especially during an area's off-season.) The majority are run by religious organizations but welcome all guests. Also, many either operate on a suggested-donation basis or reduce charges for those unable to pay the full amount. Costs under $40/night or the equivalent are noted as "economical." Stays of a week or longer are sometimes discounted. Note: click on the facility's site link for additional information.

Wondering how can you make the best use of time while in solitude? Check the TAT Forum articles on solitary retreats titled Isolation by Shawn Nevins and Solitary Spiritual Retreat by Bob Fergeson.

Please with recommendations on locations that aren't listed, or to share your experiences with a facility, or for other communications.
