Private Retreats

Hilltown Haven is located in Westerlo, NY, between Albany and the Catskills. This is a perfect place to do a solo/self meditation retreat. My husband and I have been practicing zen and vipassana meditation for many years and we are happy to make this space available to serious meditation practitioners. I also offer group retreats and yoga classes on the property.

For your solo retreat, we offer a private suite that is connected to our home.  It has a private entrance and stunning views of the mountains. We live on a private road with a short hiking trail, a pond, a creek, and plenty of space for contemplative practice.  The room has a full size memory foam bed, sitting area, kitchenette with fridge and microwave, and ensuite bath. It is modernly decorated and includes wifi. There is plenty of room for a meditation cushion and yoga mat.  You can contact me, Loretta Pyles, at 518-506-7799 or at for more information and availability.
