Sevenoaks Retreat Center is located on 120 acres of secluded forest land in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, with ample walking trails in the woods and gardens.
The property is expansive, largely wooded, bordered by the Rapidan River, and surrounded by outstanding views of the Blue Ridge mountains. Shamans who have regularly visited Sevenoaks describe the land as “spiritually seasoned.” Simply put, it feels good to be at Sevenoaks.
The featured building is Lighthouse, which offers a spacious, light-filled 52-foot-diameter circular meeting space and meditation hall – with beautiful views and resting spots on the 2nd-story circular porch.
Sevenoaks offers gourmet dining,with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian menus, and can accommodate most special dietary needs. Whenever possible, the retreat center cooks with fresh ingredients from its organic garden.
