The Cedars of Peace hermitages are located in a wooded area of the property about 1/2-mile from the main Motherhouse buildings.  Click HERE to see a map of the property.

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. The cost is $50 per night or $550 per month (for retreats 4 weeks or longer).

Loretto Motherhouse is a smoke-free environment.

*Due to COVID-19 precautions, linens for bedding are not currently being provided (sheets, pillowcase, blankets, etc.).
