Private Day Retreats

For the past 49 years, Emmaus House has been an oasis for those seeking silence and solitude in the midst of the busyness of everyday life.


If you are desiring a space to pray, reflect, journal, and rest, we warmly invite you to Emmaus House for a private retreat. Enjoy our quiet, calm, and contemplative retreat spaces. Come for a few hours or stay for the entire day.


All are welcome! Please contact us to schedule your retreat by completing the form below or calling us at (515) 282-4839.
