Exterior of Bethany

Bethany is a small house situated right at the entrance of the Abbey property. The house is five minutes’ drive from the abbey church, and guests are welcome at the monastic offices at the abbey between low Mass (beginning sometime between 6:30 and 7 AM) and 7 PM. Bethany welcomes only women (or girls accompanied by a guardian) desiring to make a retreat. Meals are provided. As in the monastic retreat house for men, breakfast is taken in silence; for lunch and dinner there is music or a reading. If they so desire, guests may assist with work, especially during the work period from 3pm to 5pm. For the rest of the day they are free to pray, read, walk, in short to spend their time as they see fit. Confession is available daily, ands spiritual direction can be arranged by request.

Bethany has four bedrooms, each with two twin beds. The second bed of each room is in a private alcove. Two of the rooms have bathroom, sink and shower which are shared between guests. The normal capacity is eight guests, however, arrangements could be made to sleep up to ten.

We suggest $50 per night per person at Bethany, and $65 per family. Arrangements of lodging fees can be made with the Guest Master for special situations.

Guests may check in between 3PM and 9PM; checkout is before the end of High Mass (10AM-11AM).

How should I prepare for my stay at the guesthouse?2022-04-11T12:24:02-05:00

At the men’s guesthouse and at Bethany, meals are served, and so one should pack as for a stay in a hotel; bedding, towels and meals come with the lodging. At the family guesthouse, bedding and towels are provided, but you must bring your own food and prepare it. The men’s guesthouse and family guest cabins have washers and dryers available with all the needed supplies.

Is transportation to the Abbey available?2022-03-30T12:11:13-05:00

For those who will be coming by plane, renting a car is the best option for a short visit.

Men staying at the Guest House may, alternatively, take a taxi, Uber or Lyft to the Abbey. Note that one cannot be picked up from the Abbey by Uber or Lyft due to its remote location unless this is arranged beforehand. The Guest Master will in most cases be able to arrange for a ride back to the airport as long as it is not on a Sunday or Feast day nor too early in the morning (before 10AM). If the above options are not possible, ask the Guest Master about arranging a ride to and from the airport.

Women guests staying at Bethany should have their own means of transportation during their stay since the women’s guesthouse is one mile from the Abbey by a dirt road with two steep hills in between.
