Special Notice: Effective immediately, we have decided to close both the Rivendell Retreat Centre, and the Rivendell Hermitage. We take these actions in an effort to slow the spread of CO-VID 19 in our province, and out of a deep care for all who are affected... our families, our communities, and the most vulnerable among us.

We will be closed until July 3 with a caretaker present on site. We will notify everyone who has a confirmed or waitlisted booking up to July 3 by phone or email. We will not be taking future booking requests until further notice.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to the end of this pandemic crisis. Please take good care of yourselves and each other. If you wish, please join the Rivendell community in taking a sacred pause and lighting a candle at 5:00 pm each day for our world.



Rivendell Retreat is...                          

a place of peace and quiet away from the noise, distractions and pressures of the city, with magnificent views of mountains, forests and seas... 

a sanctuary with a network of trails that offer the opportunity for discovering  new intimacy with God while exploring forest
paths and the wonders of creation…

located on 6 1/2 acres atop Cates Hill on Bowen Island; a short ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay and West Vancouver...

hosted by a volunteer Christian community, rooted in the gospel values of Jesus and the practiced traditions of prayer, silence, simplicity and hospitality.  Rivendell offers a welcome to small groups and individuals who are seeking spiritual renewal, respite and growth, and is accessible to people with limited resources and special needs.
