Laurel Island is a 5 acre Island on a Lake in Connecticut. It is a Retreat Location which is available for use by retreat planners or by individuals.
Laurel Island is a perfect location to hold a retreat, reunion or family group that combines the privacy and peacefulness of an island and facilities for groups both large and small. Accommodations include 5 private cottages and a large main lodge for gathering. Local catering is available for group meals and will provide meals adaptable to different diets including vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, or others.
The 5 acre island’s canopy trees, blueberry bushes, rocky outcrops and large grassy field provide numerous spaces for activities and events. A huge covered deck overlooking the lake provides protection regardless of the weather, and is attached to the lodge for easy access. All of these spaces lend well for yoga, meditation, nature, wellness and other types of retreats, reunions or family groups.
In the cottages, guests choose to sleep in either community rooms (a room with no doors), a shared room, or a private room. In total, there are 14 rooms for shared or private stays. The island can accommodate 36 people.
