Divine Mercy Centre Personal Retreat

Are you looking for a peaceful place to spiritually or emotionally recharge? Are you looking for a quiet place to explore the will of God in your life? Consider a personal retreat in Holy Family Cabin or our new On This Rock Hermitage.
Holy Family Cabin:

This cabin began as the old summer kitchen in the 1830's, but has been enlarged to make it a little more comfortable than in the “good old days”. Although it has been clad with vinyl siding on the outside, this quaint old cabin still has the old log walls on the interior. It also has a small kitchenette, hot water radiators and an airtight wood stove for extremely cold winter nights – or just to hear the crackling of the burning birch logs. The cabin also has a double bed, toilet and shower facilities in its 260 square foot floor space.

On This Rock Hermitage:

Perched high on a rock, this poustinia (hermitage) is perfect for those who are seeking the Lord in a totally peaceful environment. Without hydro or running water, it is a small simple space (98 square feet) where one can be still and listen to the voice of God. The stairs leading to the new log cabin were cut from a single cedar tree. The cabin's lower level features a table and chairs, a small pot belly wood stove and two large windows to let the nature in. Pull-down stairs lead to the upper level, where there are two single futons, glass block inserts on the end walls and oil lamps used for lighting in the evening. As one steps out onto the little balcony, one feels more like a bird in a nest, for the balcony is at the same level as the crown of the trees overlooking the pond.
This log cabin was built with 7-inch-diameter red pine logs and features a unique cross design in the roof. Sincere thanks go out to Lee Byerlay and Nicole Beifuss of Highland Log Creations who helped to make this cabin such an inviting place.
