Enchanted Hills Retreat – Weekends are Filling Up Fast

The dining hall at Enchanted Hills sits across from Lake LokoyaDid you know that Enchanted Hills, our historic camp for the blind and visually impaired located on Mt. Veeder in Napa, also accepts reservations for retreats, getaways and events of all sorts?

EHC is much quieter during the fall and winter months, which makes it an even more idyllic setting for escaping from the day-to-day of city living. It’s also a time when we spruce up the grounds and prepare for a new year. We’ve just demolished the old boat dock and started the project of building a new floating dock, designed to rise and fall with the water level as we work towards sustainable solutions for drought and storm months.

In other news, PG&E has just installed new power lines to wire the upper barn, meaning that George Wurtzel and his cohort of blind woodworking students will have all the energy they need to thrive during this month’s woodworking class. Last weekend, the Kiwanis Club had a BBQ to celebrate the one year anniversary of “K-Day,” their pledge to have a monthly volunteer day here at camp.

With all this, weekends are filling up fast — in fact, there are only a few weekends available for rental between January and May of 2016, and once summer hits Enchanted Hills is hopping from June through the end of September. That said, it’s always worth checking in to see if we have an opening or cancellation. Call us at (415) 694-7310 or learn more at www.enchantedhillsretreat.com.
