When you retreat to The Farm House, you allow everyday stresses to drift away. You have time for rest and renewal, and you return to the world refreshed. Come alone, bring your family, spouse or friend.

Plan a private retreat to:

  • Reflect on spiritual matters
  • Focus on family, marriage, business, community, career, school, politics, the future
  • Consider a serious or difficult decision, arrive at a personal position
  • Refocus on your goals, priorities, aspirations, ambitions
  • Seek inner peace, respite, safety
  • Find spiritual renewal, rest, relaxation, rejuvenation

Counselors will find The Farm House a neutral and accommodating place to hold sessions for individuals and groups. Group retreats allow positive modeling and support from others. They reduce the sense of isolation for participants and often help them achieve new insights.

Pastors and ministers can address the spiritual concerns of the members of their congregations who are struggling with faith or encountering difficulties. Help them develop new spiritual habits, guide them in their spiritual practice, and show them how they can turn their spiritual work into action.

Couples can step away from their daily routines and concentrate on their marriages, creating new energy together, and experiencing anew how they are one. Enhance your marriage, get through a crisis, or get moving on long term problems.

Individuals can enjoy the beauty of nature, write, paint, draw, and discover the depths within through quiet contemplation, creativity and recreation. Reflect, work, play and get results.

The Farm House is a cozy space for a solo retreat, an accommodating space for a small circle of friends, and a center that can hold a large group.

Create your own retreat. Follow your own schedule. Reconnect with what matters. The goal is for you to go deeper into the experience of healing, growth and transformation.

“The Farm House is paradise close to home. It's peaceful and feels like a page out of time. The atmosphere is conducive to work and yet I felt as if I'd been on vacation. I don't cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge often and when I do, it's to spend time in Dames Quarter. The proprietors are friendly and a delight to do business with. I highly recommend this retreat house.”
