“Thank you for the gift of this place; the hospitality of the staff and board; and, the space to slow down.”

“A wonderful weekend in every way—both grow-ful and rest-ful.”

“Thank you for everything. The weekend was a blessing.”

“I go home totally renewed.”

“I very much appreciate that none of the weekend’s activities were intimidating. The processes were dynamic but also gentle, and thus draw things out of us in a nonthreatening way.”

“ A sacred and welcoming place—a blessing. Thank you.”

“Thank you; thank you; thank you. I am so happy and full of joy being here—so much blessing.”

“I find the sessions and worship services here to be among the richest and most inspiring of any I experience.”

“I wish I could be here longer—to enjoy the trails, tarn, stones. It’s a lovely setting, comfortable, welcoming, easy going. Thank you very much.”

“Thank you for the gift of this place.”

“I’ll be back! Thanks for a great experience. Am blown away by the speakers Kirkridge has. WOW!”

“Great experience, beautiful surroundings.”

“Thanks for being here.”

“Thank you to all the staff at Kirkridge! Thank you Jean for accepting us completely. There truly is no place like Kirkridge.”

“I arrived at Kirkridge feeling tentative and spiritually withdrawn but was generously welcomed and made to feel at home by the attentive staff. The workshop brought together world-class instructors and a rich gathering of students, allowing me to feel deeply supported as I made lasting connections with the material, community, and other retreatants. The lush grounds and charming, rustic accommodations exceeded my high expectations. Each day delivered a freely prepared menu featuring uncommonly delicious and healthy offerings, including an assortment of whole foods and vegetarian options at every meal. Ultimately, my time at Kirkridge was incomparable, wildly enheartening, and transformative beyond measure. When the day came to journey home, I was already planning my return.”

"I am writing this letter to thank you for the wonderful experience that we have had two years in a row at Kirkridge Retreat Center for our Post Holiday Party. Both years our staff and board have been amazed at the quality and taste of the food that we received at the event. Your staff is professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating to our needs. Thank you again for making our last two Christmas parties memorable experiences."

"Thank you so much for all you did to make our wedding day so successful!  Your availability, attention to detail, and positivity made it easy to work with you and stress-free!  Keep us in mind if you decide to promote more weddings - we will be happy to share photos, etc. Thank you again!!"

"Everyone, including me, absolutely loved the food you and your staff prepared! Thanks to everyone for the care and effort you put into our meals."

"I just thought I would let you know that I was most impressed with the catering order we received on Saturday.  The pumpkin ravioli could not have been prepared any better - besides the buttery sage sauce being outrageous, the ravioli themselves were wonderful with a slightly sweet inside making for a truly lovely contrast.  If we ordered 2 more trays, I still doubt there would have been left overs.  The pork was honestly the best tenderloin we have ever had!  It was so perfectly tender and the pear sauce was just as amazing as you described.  Even the salad and roasted root vegetables were a hit with nothing at all left over!  Thank you so much for your recommendations and assistance in giving us a simple, but elegant autumn theme for Luka's first birthday. "
