Retreat Center Dining Services

From-scratch cooking from fresh ingredients to enhance your retreat experience

We are dedicate to serving the best possible food for our retreat guests. Meals are generally served family style.
Each meal is accompanied by either a cereal bar, mixed greens salad, or salad bar.
Lunches are served with fresh fruit or cookies. Dinner is served with dessert.

We are happy to provide vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. We will accommodate any food allergies. Please speak with the Bill or Penny prior to your group’s arrival to arrange for any special dietary needs.

Contact Bill or Penny today at, or call 315-675-3651 today to discuss what options are available. We can’t wait to show you what’s in store for your retreat group this year!
