About Guild Retreats


Past visitors say about their Guild retreat experience:


"I felt safe and cared for, respected in both solitude and fellowship."


"It felt like home - inviting, warm, cozy, & comfortable."


"This is a VERY welcoming community [that] makes everyone feel welcome & included."


Our beautiful campus, cozy facilities, and affordable rates make the Grünewald Guild an ideal location for your next retreat. The Guild's inclusive community has hosted a variety of church and school retreats, training sessions, and leadership workshops.


Our housing can accommodate groups of up to 35 people, and we offer comfortable meeting spaces suitable for a wide range of activities. Shared community meals invite close relationships and conversation, while our variety of contemplative spaces provide opportunites for individual reflection as well as group gatherings.


And of course, our stunning location and rambling campus in the North Central Cascades provides an ideal backdrop for your retreat experience, offering inspiration for creative work and reflection, as well as rest and recreation.
