lodgebenchLight on the Hill retreat center roomPerched high in the hills of Van Etten in Central/Upstate New York, Light on the Hill is a retreat center that provides a sacred space where seekers can find peace and solace away from their everyday worldly pursuits. The center is located on 236 acres of woods, streams, gorges, and walking paths, and offers panoramic views as distant as Pennsylvania. We will have the entire lodge to ourselves and will have a masseuse on site for scheduled massages.

Visit their website for directions and transportation information. Ithaca & Elmira are the closest airports, but you should compare prices with Binghamton, Syracuse and Rochester airports.  SIGN ME UP!
