Our National Historic Landmark four-story retreat is located at the edge of Virginia City on five acres overlooking spectacular Six Mile Canyon.

Our retreat accommodations will provide your group with approximately 14,000 square feet of open space for learning a new skill, celebrating a wedding, expanding a formal yoga practice, creatively solving a problem – the possibilities are endless.
We provide guests with peace and privacy, while being only minutes away from the tourist hustle and bustle of “C” Street – Virginia City’s main street. We are committed to making your stay a remarkable experience – over 90% of our clients are repeat business.

Guests appreciate the meeting spaces, free wireless internet, two over-sized, completely equipped eat-in kitchens and art galleries. As for overnight accommodations, our retreat boasts 16 guest rooms (10 single and 6 double beds) and 5 ½ bathrooms.

When the day is done, the work finished, the sales goals determined, the asana learned, the painting complete – gaze forever into Six Mile Canyon, play the piano, sit in the shade of towering trees on the lawn, or do a bit of retail therapy on Virginia City’s “C” Street.
