Still Point Interfaith Retreat Center, located in upstate NY, just minutes from downtown Saratoga, is open during the year for  private retreats, a day of quiet and prayer, group or staff retreats, youth retreats, business retreats and church groups.  At this time we cannot accommodate overnight retreats for groups with more than 8 people unless you wish to 'camp'. There  are 4 fully winterized hermitages (cabins) nestled in the woods along with a large facility, The Welcoming House, for groups.

We offer space for individuals who want silence and solitude at an affordable price of $55 per day. All cabins have a small refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster oven, hot plate, coffee maker, hot pot and some utensils for meal preparation or cooking.  N.B.The double cabin (1 & 2) and cabin 3 have some mustiness in the air and may be problematic for those with certain allergies.

We now offer 3 rooms in the Welcoming House during warmer weather for those who do not wish to walk to and from a cabin. There are 2 small rooms with a single bed and night stand and 1 room with a futon which pulls out to make the equivalent of a double bed. All 3 rooms have doors which connect to the larger eating and lounge area. These are available at $45 per night.
 

Take 24 hours from your busy schedule. Come to one of our cabins. Pray!

             Be silent. “The quieter you become, the more you hear.”

All conflict and separation are only on the surface of things. Let us leave the surface and, without leaving the world, plunge into God. There, in and through God, we shall hold all things and have command of all things. There we shall rediscover the essence and brilliance of all the flowers and lights and, indeed, all of creation. All whom we thought lost through death or deep misunderstanding, all whom we despaired of reaching and influencing are there, reunited by the most vulnerable, receptive and enriching point in their substance. In this place the least of our desires and efforts is harvested and tended and can at any moment cause the marrow of the universe to vibrate. The Divine Milieu by Teilhard de Chardin

 

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” Rainer Maria Rilke

 Still Point Retreat Center is self-supporting and relies entirely on our program and retreat revenues plus the generosity of our supporters for our continued success.

Individuals seeking the Sacred and in need of time and space away from their busy life are important to Still Point. We welcome people from all walks of life and spiritualities. In a world where division and suspicion of differences are rampant, Still Point is a sacred space where unity-in-plurality is valued
. Every part is essential to the whole.
