gorge-bench-blue-skyBooking your Lodging and Meals

Call our office (503-695-2243) during regular business hours and speak with Christine or Mary Anne; they can tell you when we have openings on our calendar for personal retreats for you and your household. We have expanded the number of rooms which are available for personal retreats from July 2020 until February 2021. In addition to The Hideaway, we are making personal retreats in Boyd Hall, Ballard Hall, Creevey, Beam House, Lindsay House, The Barn, and Wright Hall (when possible -we’re doing some updating!) according to what is available.

Can I bring my family to Menucha for a personal retreat?

Yes, one household per room  (up to four people who live in the same household in a room)

How much does it cost?

$110 per room, per night + $45 per adult (age 13 and up) for meals and $23.75 for kids age 7-12

Are there rooms available where I can cook meals for myself?

Yes, The Hideaway, The Barn, and Lindsay House

Can a retreat be just one night without meals?

Yes, arrive after dinner time and depart by 11am the next day.

What time can we arrive and when do we depart?

When having meals, or cooking for yourself, arrive between 3 and 5pm; depart by 2pm on the last day of your retreat.

No meals, just the room: Arrive at 6:30pm, depart by 11am the next day

Are meals served in the Dining Hall?

Right now, meals will be prepared as take-out, picked up in the dining hall and enjoyed on the terrace, outside, near your room -you choose! Proper trash receptacles will be available.

Can we use the swimming pool?

We regret the pool is not available until Multnomah County is in Phase 2 (as of July 16, we are still in Phase 1)


What to do While You’re Here

You can choose to come on retreat any time we have personal retreat space available. People come to Menucha for many reasons: to read, write, pray, meditate, grieve, write music, think.

If you desire a spiritual retreat, you may come with your own agenda or we are happy to help you with your planning.  We can tailor

– Personal Journal tailored to your needs

– Labyrinth walks (on your own or facilitated-materials provided)

– Explorations of spiritual disciplines (self-guided or facilitated introductions)

– Bible Studies (on your own or with a staff member-materials provided or bring your own)

– Nature Trails (explore on your own or ask for a guide)
