Indoor Group Facilities

The Barbara D. Studio is a 900 square-foot, cork-floor, studio, with temperature-controlled heat and air conditioning. On beautiful days, open the large windows, and two huge carriage-house doors, to bring the outside in.

The yurt stands among a ring of cedars at the base of our meadow. The cascading, peaceful water from the fish water can be heard in the yurt year-round.

Group Accommodations

Enjoy rich, comfortable bedding, views of the lake and gardens, as well as camping in the yurt, and in the meadow. We have a hot outdoor shower and port-a-potty for campers and shared bathrooms for guests sleeping indoors.


All meals are freshly prepared on-site to meet your group’s needs and enjoyment. See our sample menus.

Thank you so much for the wonderful food and sharing your beautiful space. The mushroom cakes were a meditation on joy in and of themselves. I can’t stop thinking about the coconut beet squash soup. All the sauces were masterful celebrations on being alive … Thank you.” –Val (Silent Retreat Participant)

From my first contact with you at Hidden Lake, I was warmly received and supported in bringing my work to the retreat center. But the experience stepping across the threshold of your magical space was beyond compare! We were nurtured on all levels, from the receptivity at the door, the beauty of the space, the outrageous deliciousness of the food, to the ceremonial space of the yurt you both have nurtured. You have created a container where healing and sacred reciprocity are remembered. Thank you! I plan on returning regularly and feel as if I have found a sacred home up in the Pacific Northwest with both of you at Hidden Lake. And I mean every word that I have shared with you…In gratitude and love for all that you both carry and express and extend.” –Annie (Retreat Workshop Facilitator)
