The Refuge at Knoll Farm is a beautiful, inspiring retreat center located in the Green Mountains of Vermont, in the Mad River Valley. The peaceful setting, mountain views, private accommodations, spacious common areas, and support given by resident staff make it an ideal place to gather for a family celebration, business retreat, or special group gathering of 25 people or less.
The Refuge is located on a working organic farm with a long history in social justice and conservation. Our retreat village includes beautiful private and family yurts that sleep one to six people each, a beautiful shared bath house with 3 showers and 2 flush toilets, Japanese hot tub and fire circle. Our events barn, kitchen, mountain yurt and professional office space can be booked separately or as part of the package to suit the needs of your retreat or celebration.
The barn can comfortably seat 125 people with a dining space, yoga or dance space, and an area for screening presentations. Our commercial kitchen in the farmhouse can be rented for self-catering groups, or our cooks can prepare three local organic meals a day for your group, to be served in the dining hall in our historic barn.
