Located on 25 acres, Grace Grove is an organically elegant retreat center, an oasis in the desert. Features includes 7 bedrooms, full-size kitchen, sauna, Oak Creek waterfront, trails, fireplace, & volleyball court.
Grace Grove Retreat Center is a 5500 sq.foot building with 7 guest rooms, a large beautiful kitchen, wrap around living room with plenty of lounging room, a large porch with couches and eating table for 18 people. There are 3 indoor bathrooms that are along the same hall as the bedrooms. We also have a 550 sq. foot Yoga Barn with a wood burning stove if your group needs a separate meeting space. There is also a roof top porch that is GREAT for star gazing at night.
There are 5 indoor rooms; 1 larger room with a king bed, 4 smaller rooms with 2 twin beds in each room. Currently 2 of the twin rooms are made up as king beds. We use a 3” organic wool king topper to unify the 2 twin beds to make them into a king bed. Just let us know how you want those rooms, as 2 twins or 1 king. We also have 2 outdoor “Garden” rooms which are enclosed rooms but are not on the central air conditioning or heating system. These rooms have space heaters and fans and can be used all year round although they don’t get toasty warm, but very cozy sleeping in them during the winter and warm during the day and wonderful sleeping conditions at night during the winter. These rooms have 1 double bed in each room. The rooms have organic mattresses and locally crafted wood furniture to ensure that there are no forms of toxins in the environment.
Our team consists of my husband Morgan and I, and we have a suite on the opposite end of the facility. We also have 3 staff members who live in trailers on the property. Our goal is to create a sacred space for your group to have as much fun and privacy as possible. Because we still have a property and facility to maintain and we live on-site you will see some of us pop in and out of the kitchen or be on the land working. We will be quiet little helpers in the background that you may see every once in awhile.
The kitchen tends to be to be grand central station for most groups. It is a very beautiful kitchen and well equipped. We will clear out a large refrigerator for your group and you will have plenty of space for dry products as well. The kitchen drawers and cabinets are labeled well since it is a community kitchen that is heavily used. Our team members will be very mindful to ease in and out of the kitchen around your group. When we are in the kitchen, we will support your group by helping to put away some dishes, wipe down counter tops, take trash out and basic cleaning. We do ask that your group please wash their own dishes and clean up after themselves. You will need to bring all your own food unless we have made other arrangements for our team to provide food/meals for your group.
The center has central heating and air-conditioning. In the fall and winter months we have a wood burning stove in the main hall that heats up the house very well. Either our team members will keep the stove going throughout the day and night or we will ask that you designate someone from your crew to be the “fire keeper”. There is a T.V room with cable and a DVD player and wifi is available. One of the most spectacular things about this property is that Oak Creek wraps 3/4 around the property. It is a lush 25 acre Oasis in the desert.
Enjoy all the amenities of our home, including: 3 full bathrooms with showers, private outdoor sauna, front patio fireplace with plenty of cushioned couches and built-in seating, outdoor dining table option, driveway fountain, outdoor swings, and lush green landscape next to the rushing water of Oak Creek.
