  • Everyone who lives and works there is lovely - very kind and welcoming. The food provided to the guests is ample, well-prepared and tasty. The guest house is comfortable, but the beds are very narrow and there's something odd about the water - it's very hard to get soap rinsed off when you shower and there's no tub to soak in. I stayed there when the bakery was still in operation and I very much enjoyed volunteering with the fruitcake-making process - I'm sorry I won't be able to repeat that experience. Overall, my silent retreat was just what I needed and hoped for and I'm grateful for the opportunity to visit Holy Cross Abbey.
  • Quiet setting for reflection and prayer alone or in community. Peaceful natural cemetery on hillside overlooking nearby mountains and meadows.
