Sevenoaks is a Friendly, Full-Service Retreat Center in Central Virginia
Available for Weekday and Weekend Group Rentals

Sevenoaks Retreat Center is located on 120 acres of secluded forest land in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Center offers private meeting spaces for large and small groups, serving delicious, healthy meals and providing comfortable overnight lodging.

  • Meeting spaces for 15-80 people
  • Overnight accommodations for 50 people
  • Dining hall serves 80 people

Sevenoaks has been owned and operated by Mid-Atlantic Pathwork, a nonprofit organization, since 1977. Today, Sevenoaks is rented for mindfulness, meditation and yoga retreats, dance and writing workshops, and holistic training groups. In addition, Sevenoaks offers Pathwork programs and workshops.

One of the attractions of Sevenoaks is the land itself. The 120-acre property is expansive, largely wooded, bordered by the pretty Rapidan River, and surrounded by views of the Blue Ridge mountains. Shamans who have regularly visited Sevenoaks describe the land as “spiritually seasoned”. Simply put, it feels good to be at Sevenoaks.

The featured building is Lighthouse, which offers a wonderful, 52-foot-diameter circular meeting space for groups.

Located in Central Virginia, Sevenoaks feels private and secluded without being too remote. It is easily accessible by car from large cities and airports, reachable in less than two-hours from Washington DC, 75 minutes from Richmond, or 30 minutes from Charlottesville.

Such a confluence cannot easily be created, and provides a richly desirable place for personal development retreats and workshops.
