Virginia's Stunning Natural Environment

The beautiful unspoiled rolling farmlands of the Shenandoah Valley are magical. The ancient energy of both the Blue Ridge Mountains & the Alleghenies ranges are felt everywhere. This bucolic 250 acre Retreat Center in Buena Vista is just 4 miles from the historic, picturesque town of Lexington and 50 miles from Roanoke's convenient airport.
