Located in the Haliburton Highlands on a beautiful property surrounded by forests and ponds, The Abbey Retreat Centre provides a quiet, peaceful space to land for rest and renewal. The centre is available for rental when not in use for retreat programs. 

The Abbey Retreat Centre offers spacious bedrooms that can host up to 12 people, a fully-equipped kitchen, large lounging and gathering spaces, and a spectacular view of Haliburton’s beautiful natural surroundings. With ponds to enjoy, hiking trails, outdoor gongs, and a separate “hermitage” building for quiet moments available to you, there is no shortage of ways to soak up the peace and beauty of this part of the Highlands.

The Abbey Retreat Centre is located on the same road as The Haliburton Highlands Brewery, Haliburton Solar and Wind, The Little Pit Drive In, and Abbey Gardens Community Trust, Disc Golf, and Food Hub/Garden Cafe. This means healthy food & groceries, cafe treats, an award winning micro-brewery, disc golf, hiking trails. and occasional drive-in movies at your fingertips!   

The Abbey Retreat Centre can be used to gather with family and friends, hold corporate meetings, or as a customized retreat experience. Our mission is to support people on their health and healing journeys, especially those living with cancer. All money generated from rentals goes directly to funding in-person and online retreats and programs to support people living with cancer and their loved ones. 

Enjoy your event with us even more, knowing that you are helping to support people living with cancer in our community.

This space is also available for daytime events, classes, retreats, and celebrations.
