SOLO RETREATS

The Hermitage offers high quality, simple cabins for practitioners seeking peace and contemplative silence. Each cabin is private and unique and offers unparralleled views of Lake Atitlan and its surrounding volcanoes.

Built mostly from natural materials, the cabins are light and spacious, designed intentionally for the purpose of retreat and silence. Each has a comfortable bed, shelves, writing desk and personal practice space and comes with a private bathroom with solar shower.

Practitioners may choose from one of the hillside cabins, or the beauitful bamboo tree house, with two rooms and meditation platforms twenty feet above the ground. All cabins have a private kitchen for self-catering, or practitioners may choose to have their meals delivered to their door from The Hermitage homestead kitchen.

Retreaters may make use of the permaculture gardens for practice and contemplation, and will find many beautiful hidden meditation spaces amongst the trees and bamboo forest. The Hermitage has a private dock and lake access for swimming or enjoying the sunrise at the water’s edge.

All retreaters are offered the option of three vegetarian meals per day, made from the highest quality available products and fruits and vegetables from our permaculture garden and nearby farms. To include three meals per day for your retreat, please add $20 per day to the rates below.
