Retreat Center

A Quiet Place

The Retreat Center provides the ideal place for church groups, agencies, organizations and families to conduct a myriad of events such as retreats, seminars, “think tanks,” conventions, and family reunions. As a guest at Mt. Aetna, you will find the staff astonishingly helpful, with your needs and comfort their top priority. Allow us to provide you with quality service, convenience and natural beauty as you plan and carry out your next event.

We have lodging for up to 200 in heated cabins and guest rooms and meeting facilities for groups large and small.

Our professional food service team provides well-balanced, nutritional vegetarian and vegan meals. No caffeinated drinks are served. Several of our smaller facilities allow for groups to do their own meal preparation in small kitchettes.

There are plenty of activities to do, and lots of local attractions as well. Be sure to plan a visit to our Nature Center.
