The Cedars of Peace hermitages are located in a wooded area of the property about 1/2-mile from the main Motherhouse buildings.  Seven cabins are available for individuals seeking a place of deeper quiet and solitude. The length of stay varies. Most come for a week-end or a week while others come for several weeks or months.

Each cabin is comparable to a small studio apartment and is equipped with a refrigerator, countertop burner or stove, microwave, toaster oven, and cooking utensils. Linens are provided. All the cabins have electric heat and airconditioning, with some having the option of a wood-burning stove. Screened-in porches and large windows make God’s Spirit in nature readily accessible.

Those staying at Cedars bring and prepare their own food, although it can be arranged for retreatants to eat their main meal at noon in the Motherhouse dining room. The cost is $50/night or $550/month.

Loretto Motherhouse is a smoke-free environment.
