Situated along the Potomac River and C&O Canal, Shepherd's Spring has 220 acres of woodland and rolling meadows. This secluded site is a relaxing refuge for people and a haven for wildlife. Demonstration gardens, a Heifer Global Village, and more create an eco-friendly learning facility with worldwide scope. Please note that Shepherd's Spring is an alcohol-free facility. Rooms are simple yet comfortable and include a luggage rack, dresser, desk, chair, and most have a futon. Each room has its own private bath along with individually controlled heating and air conditioning. Linens are provided and maid service on Wednesdays. This is optional so it is important that the participant hangs the tag on the door. There are no phones or televisions in the rooms. Part of the charm of Shepherd’s Spring is “getting away from it all” to focus on meaningful activities and ideas. The site features a natural spring as well as nature and meditation trails for hiking. There is limited wireless Internet access and cell phone service, but a computer is available for guest use in the common area. Each room comes with its own heating/air conditioning unit. Free parking available on site. Along with the reading material specifically provided by us for the program, we have a large assortment of books in our library located on the second floor of our lodge. You can enjoy this book in our newly renovated Oasis Room. We also provide board games and puzzles if entertainment is desired on site, beyond what is scheduled.
