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.

Cancellations
There is a cancellation policy that applies to a group canceling a whole retreat/program at the Garrison Institute. This policy is detailed in the agreement that is established with each retreat group.

For individuals cancelling attendance at a retreat when Garrison Institute collects room and board fees directly from guests, we assess a $50 processing fee up to a week in advance of a retreat.

For cancellations within a week of the event, in addition to the $50 processing fee, we will assess a fee of $40 per day for the length of the retreat to cover our direct costs for food, which will have already been ordered. If you cancel after 4pm the night before a retreat starts, there will be no refund. It is in your best interest to be certain of your intention before registering for a program.
