AirBnB Stays at ARC

We welcome you to the Avalon Retreat Centre (ARC) located in the heart of Ontario’s Madawaska Valley. A tranquil and relaxing spiritual getaway for an individual or couple looking to rejuvenate in a serene setting overlooking a picturesque spring-fed lake. ARC has been stewarded by Gaisheda Kheawok, a medicine person and spiritual elder, known as the Messenger of The Mother, for over twenty years.  We invite you to the beauty and healing energy of this land and water.

Guests will enjoy a magnificent view of Gorman Lake and the Opeongo Hills. Go for a relaxing swim. Take a canoe or kayak to a secluded island. Walk the stone labyrinth and medicine wheel garden or join us in our daily early morning meditation.

As part of your stay, we have many Wellness Excursions to our sister property a short distance away, known as Magdalene’s, as well as mini-retreats at ARC. Wellness excursions allow you to connect to the land and its natural surrounds to support you in bringing your body, mind and soul back into balance.

Choose from a variety of accommodations to suit your personal style.  We offer off-grid cabanas, a quaint and bright one-bedroom with en-suite bath, as well as a larger one floor apartment with all the amenities you require for your stay.  Come and allow the beauty and healing energy of this land and water to embrace and rejuvenate you.
