Walking the grounds here is a very peaceful experience. They have a path into the woods with stations as well as several places to sit and pray. The Padre Pio statue is a favorite of mine.

Mother Mary Anne told us on Friday evening that a priest who attended a retreat here said that the place was named wrong; it should be called a "treat" house instead of a "retreat" house because here, God "treats" us. I would have to agree whole-heartedly. Just came back today from a one evening retreat with my Sunday School class... More

My sister and I were welcomed with open arms and hearts! The atmosphere was lovely,the rooms spotless, breakfast plentiful and Benedictine nuns so very kind. We were the only guests the weekend we stayed and were given run of the Robertshaw Country House, a restored home with beautiful grounds, library, sitting rooms and a den. Just perfect-thank you!

This is a very nice place for peace and prayer. They have flea market, retreats, dinner, and other social events. I would recommend this to anyone in need of reconnecting with the faith. All of the sisters are sweet and kind.
