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 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.
In the cottages, guests choose to sleep in eithe

The owners are very friendly. The island is full of activities (frisbee, wiffle ball, ping pong, canoeing, kayaking, swiming etc.). You can bbq while you are there with grills at each cabin. Each cabin has a kitchen and deck. It was a very relaxing and fun experience. Definitely recommended to those who enjoy the out-doorsy experience/semi-camping experience.
