Plantation

Walkabout in gray predawn mists or through the ancient apple orchard in silvery moonlight; lounge in the coolness of the verandah on a humid summer afternoon, sipping iced tea; fill your ears with the cacophony of bullfrogs in the twilight springtime evenings; let autumn rain wash out your soul and fill it full of foliage colors in reds, gold and yellows.  Our Fall colors in Western Pennsylvania are often more intense than anything you'll see in the New England States.  Roaming our rolling hills makes it easy to find scenic views.

A walk in a winter wonderland of hushed snowfall and animal tracks is a secret world few take the cold to explore, but well worth the exhilaration. When you come back to the glowing warmth and comfort of the Plantation, relax with a good book (we have some to borrow during your stay) and leave your world. Quiet down inside. Stay with us on retreat--there's no better place to lose yourself, find yourself, write, or paint. This is a house where the muses of creativity laugh with you. You'll find yourself inspired.

Veranda

In summertime, the verandah is cool and inviting and the gardens are beautiful. Under the old maple trees, hangs a hammock awaiting your leisure moments.

Fountain in the Secret Garden

Our new fountain in "The Meditation Garden."

We are in the process of transforming the old clay tennis court into a beautiful meditation garden.

 

Labyrinth

Follow the path through the woods from The Meditation Garden, and you will discover our new Labyrinth. The view across the farmlands from this vantage point is Pennsylvania perfection. During the walking meditation of the circuitous labyrinth, you will find your center, release your cares, and visit with Wisdom and Enchantment. One girl has already declared, "This is magical!"
