Retreat Cabins

Open Dates

The beauty of nature, quietness, and solitude supported me so much in letting the vajra mind shine through. Having time for my practice with no outer worldly pressure helped me to deeply relax into my meditation, creating space. I’m deeply grateful for this precious time on Tara’s Land!     -Vera M.

Retreat, or returning back to a place of origin, is an age-old practice in many cultures. Our retreat cabins provide a rare and precious opportunity to be completely secluded and alone in a remote mountain setting. Here you are free to maintain intensive practice and connect with your innermost being. All of our cabins are ideal for solitary retreat. They feature vast views and are remotely located for ultimate privacy.  Each cabin has a single bed, wood stove heat, a gas burner or cooking stove, and kitchen utensils.  Retreatants bring their own food, bedding, and practice materials. There is no running water, electricity, phone or internet service. Each cabin has an outhouse.  Wildlife abounds. 

No smoking, drugs or intoxicants are allowed at the cabins.
