Accommodations & Facilities

No matter what time of year it is, Nazareth Retreat Center’s sacred grounds are full of beauty. They invite you to explore, to marvel, and to find peace. Check out these incredible aerial videos of our campus and grounds throughout the seasons.

Guest House
You may be surprised to learn that the Guest House was built in 1869. At one point in time, it even served as a rectory for local priests. The cozy rooms inside certainly don’t betray their age. Many come with views of the Sacred Labrinth, the outdoor Stations of the Cross, or the beautiful cemetery where Mother Catherine Spalding and hundreds of Sisters of Charity of Nazareth are buried. A stay in the Guest House allows you to experience the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth’s long tradition of hospitality for yourself. It contains seven private rooms equipped with double beds and one room fitted with twin beds. Each room has its own bathroom – complete with a shower. Limited handicap accessible options are available. A stay here gives you access to a small kitchenette, a sitting room for meetings, a front porch, and an outdoor charcoal grill.

Nativity Hall
Nativity Hall was built in 1915 and, in a past life, served as a rectory and novitiate for aspiring religious sisters. These lodgings are a great place to stay for any purpose (including silent retreats) but are especially great for small groups that come together. Eleven private rooms are available. Saint Vincent’s Church, scenic walking paths, and the cemetery where Mother Catherine Spalding and hundreds of other Sisters of Charity of Nazareth are buried can be found just a stone’s throw away. A stay in Nativity Hall comes with opportunities to use a fully equipped kitchen, a couple small meeting rooms, an outdoor charcoal grill, and a snug front porch that is great for drinking your morning coffee on or enjoying a lazy afternoon chat.

David Hall
Built in 1958, David Hall originally served as a science building for Nazareth College. Nestled between the Nazareth U.S. Post Office and the Nazareth Villages, it has now been converted into spacious, apartment-style living. One apartment comes with five private rooms and is equipped with one double bed, four single beds, a pull-out couch, and two full bathrooms. Another apartment has four private rooms equipped with one double bed, three single beds, and one full bathroom and one-half bath. Lastly, there is also a one-bedroom apartment with two single beds and a bathroom. Be sure to click the photos in the gallery for a closer view.
