Heartwood offers a soul-filling oak woodland mountain retreat setting. Staff cultivate an atmosphere of nourishment and care. There are few places I’d rather be.

Had a wonderful experience at Heartwood. They brought in a guest chef and food was incredible. Heaters in the rooms, even had the room heated before we arrived. This meant a lot as we were there on a cooler, rainy weekend. I loved how all the living quarters were dispersed throughout the property. Property itself is incredible. The wildlife was all around and added to the already incredible experience. Would absolutely come back.

Heartwood is a unique space where potential, positive intention, informed direction and open hearts and minds converge.  It provides students, staff and teachers a chance to collaborate and problem solve. Truly a model for community and education.

Amazing spa/sauna/showers/bathroom facilities. The temple is amazing and the staff were so nice. We camped and enjoyed the trails and hot tub. Highly recommend if you like to camp/glamp. It is far off the beaten path but if you know this going in it is nothing to worry about, just a little extra slow driving. We would 100% go again. Thanks Heartwood!

Heartwood Mountain Sanctuary is the perfect environmental setting in nature for a Retreat. The accommodations are very comfortable, the vegetarian food is excellent, and the staff is friendly and courteous. An delightful experience that you will never forget.

-Event Participant, October 2021

Heartwood is a sacred place to me. I’ve been there for two retreats, and have really felt rejuvenated and reaffirmed in my life. The setting, the views, the perfect balance of comfort and simplicity, the animals, trails, wildlife, trees, and most of all– the temple– are all parts of this experience for me. Having access to the kitchen any time I need it is great, and the fact that it’s so intimate and basic– but rich in what matters (great food, great humans/staff, great nature)– is what makes this place so special.

-Event Participant, October 2021

Heartwood is one of the most beautiful places I’ve had the pleasure of visiting. The rolling hills and nightly fog were stunning – especially when observed from the hot tub and sauna. The staff were absolutely top-notch, and the facilities were perfect. I can’t wait to come back.

-Event Participant, December 2019

This place, in the middle of nature has so much magic and beauty.  It seeps out of everything.  The people, the buildings, the animals that wander it, the food… it is truly a special place to be.  Thank you for sharing it with me.

– Retreat Participant, Spring 2019

The facilities were spectacular! The sauna is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. The family feel made the experience wonderful. I can’t stop raving about the food. My only complaint is that my stomach wasn’t big enough.
Thank you!

Such an amazing place!
