Our Story

Retreat Central is a matchmaker. The company was born out of a desire to help event planners find the best possible locations for their retreat groups. We felt strongly that all groups, businesses, and non-profit organizations deserve a beautiful location with good facilities and excellent service, and affordable pricing. Often the search for the best retreat location can take longer than the planning of the event! Read more about Retreat Central’s Story >

"When I was faced with having to find a location for our events I didn’t know where to begin and didn’t have the time to explore. Michele was a wealth of knowledge and made the process easy and enjoyable! She presented several options, set up site tours, and handled all the details, saving me a great deal of time. It is a pleasure to work with someone as thoughtful and professional as Michele and Retreat Central."
