Retreat Planner’s Guide

Take a look around our facilities.

Menucha offers a wide range of lodging, from dormitory style to semi-private and private rooms; many of these are wheelchair accessible. Guests may stay in the original Meier Estate buildings, including Wright Hall, or in contemporary lodging like Creevey Commons. Each of Menucha’s nine residential facilities has its own personality whose traits may include: Gorge views, a fireplace, a wood stove – perhaps a piano. Wireless internet access is widely available. In addition to residential and indoor meeting facilities, there are recreational facilities and outdoor meeting spaces during the summer. Our very own espresso bar, Just Wright Java, is located in the basement of Wright Hall in what used to be the “Speakeasy” or hidden Prohibition wet bar.
