The home of Garrison Institute is a former 77,000 square foot Capuchin Franciscan monastery that was restored and renovated in 2002. Originally built in 1932, it overlooks the Hudson River just over an hour north of New York City.
The Institute offers a place of refuge where guests can withdraw from the business of daily life. Accommodations are simple yet tasteful with enough space to breathe, rest and meditate. To attend a retreat, please check our retreat calendar.
"...a generous, exclusive retreat of memorable warmth, inquiry, and kindness... The quiet watchfulness of the Institute - people, buildings, gardens, grounds, view - embraced our efforts...."
