Update Regarding Covid-19

As part of our Covid strategy, we have lowered our occupancy rate to 2 or 3 retreatants at a time with no hosts present.   Because of this, we are currently welcoming retreatants who meet all of the following criteria:

  • you have had several retreats at the Hermitage in the past 2 years
  • you have had a retreat without a host present.
  • You agree to follow our guidelines for physical distancing, handwashing and use of masks, as well as the use/cleaning of the common areas while retreating at the Hermitage (we will provide details).

If you meet these criteria and would like to book a retreat, please email your request, and we will get back to you in a few days:

For those who don’t meet the criteria, please monitor this page for changes in our policy as the situation unfolds.

After we have confirmed availability, you will be asked to fill in the booking request form.   Once we have processed your request, we will email you a confirmation.

Retreat stays range from 2 days to 6 days.  If you are wanting to stay longer, you will need to submit a letter of intent and provide a reference.

Please note that public transit is available on Bowen Island but there will be no ride sharing or hitch hiking available. Each person is responsible for their own journey to the Hermitage.
