New Morning Retreat Center

We are situated on four beautiful acres West of Elgin, Illinois and just 60 mi. from downtown Chicago. We are 20 minutes from the Metra Train and just 15 min. from I-90 which takes you to O'Hare and Chicago. Our property is peaceful and quiet. We have a swimming pool and plenty of places to sit and relax. We have a great dog, several barn cats and a flock of chickens.

My husband Matthew and I are both ordained clergy and our retreat center is a place of hospitality for all. We treat our guests, staff and volunteers with respect and let our guests guide us in how much interaction they want. We are happy to work alongside our volunteers, but also appreciate folks who can take initiative and are able to work on their own.
