Hope Springs is nationally and internationally known for its hospitality, community-style warmth, and memorably delicious meals with an emphasis on vegetarian or light meat fare. We are a full service retreat center providing accommodations for up to 30 people.

Hope Springs is ideal for educational workshops, writing and meditation retreats, commitment ceremonies, large family reunions, non-profit board retreats, and yoga or dance workshops.

Bring your group to Hope Springs. We still have openings for groups of 12 or more on several weekdays and on the following weekends: April 4-7, April 11-14, April 18-25, May 9-12, May 16-19, May 23-25, May 30-June 2.

Besides the beauty of its secluded forested setting, what makes Hope Springs special are its outstanding facilities. The Studio is an octagonal 1500 sq. ft. building with exquisitely finished maple hardwood floors, high skylights, and spacious ceilings - evoking a reverent and tranquil response from guests.

A second facility, Spirit House, is a round meditation space with a central sunken fire pit and a contemplative art installation.

Lodging is offered to guests in four locations.

Hope Springs has a warm, community feel and artistic ambience throughout its complex.

Though internationally recognized and located in a remote setting, Hope Springs is close to a large percentage of the Eastern U.S. population, being only a 1.5 - 2 hour drive from Cincinnati, Columbus, Lexington and Huntington.

Hope Springs Institute is a 501c3 Not for Profit Retreat Center in Ohio's Southern Appalachian foothills providing intentional space for mindful, creative and healthy private group retreats. Hope Springs also sponsors profoundly transformational workshops on topics which include women's issues, empowered leadership, and personal growth. In order to keep our services affordable to the public, we rely in part upon donations to keep our doors open. We are grateful to all who make contributions to our cause and thereby widen our circle of service to the greater world. Become a part of the Hope Springs family.

What Our Guests Are Saying

“The beauty of the people who work here. The Spirit of the Land. The love all around is what makes Hope Springs very special. This was my first time here. I will return. I felt so loved and cared for in all ways.”

~ Retreat attendee

“This is a beautiful, magical place. Thank you for allowing me to come and be part of the history of all the wonderful, moving events that transpire here. I loved the colors, smells, sounds, and food. I loved the snacks being out. The staff were all extremely kind and all my needs were met while here. Thank you.”

~ Participant, Writing Retreat, July 2011

"The mostly organic, unprocessed food is the main reason I enjoyed my stay. That is hard to find most places. Also, the room was very comfortable and the atmosphere was relaxing and pleasant.”

~ Retreat Participant, Noble Circle, September 2011

“What an incredible place, a wonderful experience, and an outstanding feeling of peace! Spirit called our group to do ceremony at Serpent Mound and the angels led us to Hope Springs! I feel so nourished and cared for! Thank you for being our “Support System.” Can’t wait to return! Keep on doing what you do! The bed was so…just right! The food was AMAZING!  The “SPACE” was perfect! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
