Stay at the off-grid straw-bale hermitage at our retreat center five miles from Warner Springs. You will be secluded from, yet close to the convenience of our retreat center, surrounded by 180,000 acres of wild-land, in the chaparral forest of back-country northeast San Diego county. You have a panoramic view of Mount Palomar and the valley between us. Walk the stone labyrinth, enjoy hiking trails. Ideal for a personal or writing retreat. The hermitage sleeps two. Has 12 volt solar system for lighting. You have use of showers, bathroom, and kitchen at the main retreat house. We can accommodate extra guests in a second guest house close by.
The land here has been used for deep transformational work for the past quarter-century. People tell us that the atmosphere is infused with an otherworldly sense of stillness and meditative calm. People often use the hermitage for personal spiritual retreats; writers and artists also come here for writing or creative retreats, or to spend time in personal reflection.

This is a great place to come for peace and quiet to relax or have solo time away to write and take in the quiet. Catriona and Michele are excellent hosts. Very helpful and accommodating. Clean facilities and a great communal kitchen to gather in and cook meals. Very warm and inviting. Breathtaking views. They have put a lot of creativity and mindfulness into creating their retreat center.
