"To ERC Staff, Thank you so much for your work and dedication.  it was a pleasure being a guest here.  The location is so peaceful, what permeates throughout is the love and care that you have for the Earth and for your guests.  The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, bathrooms also very clean and there were lots of great spots to sit and read or just to comtemplate being alive.  I really enjoyed my stay at your place. Everything you do herehas been appreciated and enjoyed.

"Stephan and all the great staff at the Ecology Retreat Centre have been a pleasure to work with these past 10 years. As a network and capacity builder of environmental NGOs we regularly convene these passionate organizational leaders and being able to rely on staff there to support and host allows us to concentrate on our session objectives and make the most of our limited time together. Hats off to everyone at ERC for providing the perfect environment for learning and reflection."

"I have booked the Ecology Retreat Centre for over 15 years for my retreats. I do about 3-4 retreats a year. It continues to be my go-to retreat centre of choice. There is an impeccable attention to detail to make sure that my programs run smoothly, the meals are incredibly delicious, the natural environment is unparalleled, and the accommodation is very comfortable and beautiful. I always receive accolades from my workshop participants for the service I get at the Centre. I highly recommend that you do your next retreat or conference at the ERC."

"This place exceeded my expectations. The lodging was fantastic - rooms were warm and clean, washrooms are clean and well maintained.
The food was excellent. It's hard to find high quality food in places like this.
And best of all - the location is phenomenal. It's very scenic with walking trails, creek running throughout the property.
In all ways, this place blew my expectations.

"We really enjoy coming each year to the Ecology Retreat Centre in the winter. The kids have a great time! They love the skating on the pond and the sledding on the hill, not to mention the delicious food. It is so good for them to be out in the country setting. Thank you so much!"
