The WEI Eco-Retreat Program

The WEI Eco-Retreat Program is committed to creating a space for the health, well-being, creativity and relaxation of WEI members. The Eco-Retreat Center has four rooms available for temporary rentals, either at individual room rates or as part of an entire facility rental. Day rentals are also available for group meetings with the group space ideally comfortable for up to 20 people. WEI can provide a modest continental breakfast with coffee for group meetings and a B&B style organically-certified breakfast for individual guests. Overnight accommodations are comfortable for up to 8 people. WEI is committed to providing a quiet and serene space for activists, writers, teachers, students, scholars, artists, peace workers, families and friends.

WEI expects that guests at the Eco-Retreat Center will be respectful of the mission and work of our organization. At least one person in your group must be a WEI member in order to make an individual or group reservation ($50 for single membership, $75 for double membership and $150 for Corporate/Business Memberships).

WEI is located on an organically certified orchard overlooking the wooded hillside and prairie lands of Wild River State Park. This restful place is just over an hour’s drive from the Twin Cities and located between North Branch and Taylors Falls in Amador Township (Chisago County).
