Reserving Saranam

15. screen porch lunch set-up.jpg

Saranam Retreat Center welcomes religious and non-religious organizations for group and personal retreats, ceremonies, meditation, yoga, healing arts workshops, writing, environmental education and awareness, and other beneficial activities. We especially welcome non-profit organizations dedicated to the benefit of others to hold board meetings and retreats at Saranam.​


Saranam is located in Montrose, West Virginia, on 54 acres of woods and pasture. The main building’s ground floor includes a living/dining common room, fully equipped kitchen, library, large screened-in porch, zendo (meditation/teaching hall), bathroom, small private consultation room, and cloakroom. Covered porches with comfortable seating surround the building. The second floor offers dormitory-style sleeping quarters, a few private rooms, and two bathrooms. The retreat can comfortably lodge 18 people. Up the hill in the woods is the Hermitage, a 10x14’ heated cottage with a bed and desk, as well as a covered porch.

Outside, decorative gardens flank the main building, and beyond are large fields (some are used by a local farmer for cattle or horses), a forested hill with walking trails, a small creek, a gated green cemetery, and a stupa (a monument for inner and outer peace).
