Lodging & Flight Information
Out of town guests:
Fly in to Minneapolis/St Paul (MSP), Minnesota. Luminaries Retreat is about a 1 hour drive from MSP. We recommend renting a car or contacting NWT Express Shuttle (715-634-5307) for information on a round-trip shuttle to St Croix Falls from the MSP airport.
Our permanent retreat location is at 123 S. Washington St, Saint Croix Falls, Wisconsin, 54024 which is off of the Main Street of Saint Croix Falls. We have 3 apartments we use for retreats. The Artist's Loft, The Peacock Loft, and The Copper Room. For individuals/couples/custom retreats, we use these apartments for lodging and cooking. If you are interested in booking a night in our retreat rooms (lodging only) please visit Luminaries Lodging.
Larger group retreats (8+ people) are done off-site. See below for larger group retreat housing information.
We encourage group retreat guests to come with at least one person you are familiar with because lodging is in a retreat house (unless specified that the retreat is at the Luminaries Building). The retreat locations have sleeping areas with several twin or double beds in each room (you will not have to share a bed unless you are coming with someone you want to share with!) We will all be "friends" by the time the retreat is over but we want you to be as comfortable with the group as possible and don't want you to be surprised. Staying in a retreat house offers us privacy, familiarity, and continuity. In addition, it keeps the costs down and enables us to have a large kitchen at our disposal to teach you how to cook healthy. If we were in a hotel, these things would not be possible. If you are coming alone, we will make sure you are in gender-specific bedrooms (each guest with their own bed).
St Croix Falls, WI and neighboring Osceola, Dresser, Amery, Balsam Lake, Lindstrom, Center City, Chisago City, and Taylors Falls, MN all have their own small-town activities and events throughout the year that you might also want to enjoy surrounding the time at your Luminaries Retreat. Trollhaugen (Dresser, WI), Wild Mountain (Taylors Falls, MN), and Fawn Doe Rosa (St Croix Falls) are all great choices to visit and are each only a few minutes drive away from your retreat.
