Picture windows overlooking the grounds and surrounding hills run the entire length of the room so that guests can enjoy the panoramic view while dining. In addition to serving overnight groups, The Y at Watson Woods can host one-day workshops, seminars, luncheons and banquets.
A cozy facility with 8 bedrooms containing two single beds and sink in each room. There is a bright and comfortable meeting room and fully equipped kitchen if meal preparation is preferred. Hillside is a great choice for small groups and family reunions.

Three buildings, each with 24’ x 38’ central meeting room and fireplace, and 8 bedrooms. Each retreat center can accommodate 32 people in dorm style bedrooms. For a group using all of the retreat centers, there is a community Retreat Hall for meetings or worship. It is 28’ x 60’ and will easily accommodate 100 people. All buildings contain refrigerators. Linens are not included with the Retreat Village accommodations but can be requested.
Our Chapel can seat 200 people with the option to include our chapel extension which can add 40 additional seats. There is a baby grand piano, projector, screen and microphones.
A large picnic pavilion provides tables and benches for those wishing to enjoy a picnic. A propane grill is situated on one end of the building, and there is ample space for sports and games surrounding the pavilion. There are also plenty of parking spaces. For an informal wedding and/or reception, many couples have chosen the pavilion in the past few years. Electric, running water and seasonal bathrooms are also available in the pavilion. This location is great for cross country races, family reunions, grad parties and more.
