The Hermitage Retreat House at St. Anne’s is located in Smithsburg, MD, approximately 70 miles west of both Baltimore, MD. and Washington, DC. Accessible to the tri-state area, it is also about 68 miles south of Harrisburg, PA.
We extend an invitation to individuals from all faith traditions or denominations and from wherever you are in your own spiritual journey who wish to take some time away from the demands of daily living to “Rest” the body, “Refresh” the mind, and “Renew” the spirit.
There are three single guest rooms on the second floor with a shared bath. Each room is simply decorated and includes a desk and an upholstered chair for private study and quiet solitude. The living room, dining room and chapel are open to guests during their visit.
Three simple meals and snack food are provided in the dining room for visiting guests. We have a small refrigerator for bottled water and cold drinks, as well as a hot drink maker. (Guests do not have access to the kitchen. However, we will make every effort to accommodate special dietary requests with advance notice.)
The Hermitage Retreat House is staffed by a Resident Manager who is on site to coordinate the scheduling of retreats and events, welcome and see to the needs of the guests, prepare the meals, and care for the house.
