Bring Your Group
"The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul." —Robert Wyland
We are happy to host parish groups and church communities, students, and non-profit organizations. The Island and our kitchen staff can accommodate overnight groups of up to 70 people, and even larger groups for a day visit. To ensure that we can provide all the necessary rooms and facilities, we encourage you to contact us well in advance.
At St. Edmund’s Retreat, you can find the peace and beauty, which we frequently miss in the busyness of our everyday lives. The many gardens, pathways and shrines on Enders Island provide opportunities for reflection and appreciation of what the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins called “the grandeur of God.”
You can view high quality photos of our accommodations here.
During the period from April 1 through October 15—when we traditionally have more requests for weekend retreats then we can accommodate—we require a 2 night minimum stay from Friday to Sunday for all groups. We give priority to returning groups and groups of 25 or more.
We accept inquires that do not meet these criteria at any time. Please contact us for more information.
