Casa del Sol Retreat House at Ghost Ranch
Casa del Sol
Located two miles from main Ghost Ranch main campus, Casa del Sol is a retreat space at Ghost Ranch dedicated to deeper spiritual contemplation. Certain retreats lend themselves to an intimate group and setting. Casa del Sol is a single story adobe home built in the mid-1930s with bedrooms that open up to a shared plaza. Meetings are held in the living room which is anchored by a large picture window overlooking Cerro Pedernal. The home and garage, which was recently converted to three hermitages, is set at the base of the multi-colored 700-foot tall cliff wall with a chimney feature standing guard. A heart shaped labyrinth is off to the side, bordered by prayer ties and flags fastened to sagebrush. Space is limited to 12-15 in this intimate setting.
Casa del Sol is the perfect setting for individual, silent and/or guided retreats. The retreat house, two miles away from main Ghost Ranch facilities, provides a peacefully quiet space amidst a spectacular desert panorama. Casa del Sol, which house up to 14 people, has a spacious common room with fireplace, a full kitchen and simple sleeping rooms. Groups staying at Casa del Sol may choose to travel the two miles to the Ghost Ranch Dining Hall for meals or may bring their own food.
