Heartwood Mountain Sanctuary is the perfect destination for your next special event or retreat! Located on 200 wild and beautiful acres, our mountain village campus lets you get away from it all while stilll having access to comfort and amenities. Breathe in the clean mountain air, get your heart pumping as you hike between locations on our walking campus and ditch your cell phone (no service up here, but there is wifi in your room and the lodge!). Heartwood offers a variety of lodging options from ensuite to camping. Book a cozy green-built cabin “bungalow” among the firs or enjoy one of our modern, eco-renovated dorms.  All of our rooms come with beautiful surroundings, friendly staff, and a unique opportunity to relax and unplug from the daily grind. Our 200-acre wilderness campus is the perfect backdrop for a weekend getaway or your next group event or retreat.

Farm Fresh Meals

There are a lot of great reasons to visit Heartwood, but what we consistently get the most feedback about are the delicious meals! Our farmers work year round to produce an abundance of organic food and medicine for the Heartwood Lodge Kitchen, which our chefs then lovingly craft into delicious and soul-nourishing meals. Our kitchen is plant based and serves a vegetarian menu based on what is in season, and we are known to throw a good bbq featuring local meats every once in a while too. We offer a selection of hand milled grains and breads as well as various ferments, beverages and desserts, and we can accommodate special menu requests for groups such as raw, vegan, or gluten-free with advance notice.

Classes & Workshops

Explore your creativity and feed your passion! We offer year-round educational programming in the areas of food, arts, culture, ecology and wellness. From weekend classes to multi-day workshops, intensives and residencies, we have something for every student. Classes are taught by Heartwood staff, area experts and visiting guest teachers. We can also work with you to customize special educational offerings for your group or special event.

Field Trips!

Our campus is remote, but located within a couple hours drive from some of the most scenic destinations in Northern California. If your group would like to enjoy an off-campus adventure, The Heartwood Shuttle is available for both half- and full-day excursions. Delicious picnic lunch from the Lodge Kitchen can be included by request. Hike around in the majestic beauty of the Redwoods, swim in the pristine Eel River or stop off for a local Humboldt farm visit. We are happy to customize a tour to meet your group’s needs. Please inquire at [email protected] for pricing and availability.

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!
