Senexet House

Senexet_house_postcardSenexet House is a year-round retreat center with a mission to encourage and enlarge the spiritual life of all who come to it.

In 2013, Senexet House introduced “Moments in Time” as a way to encourage the use of its lovely Victorian lakeside cottage by the vintage dance community, as well as by others whose creative and artistic pursuits could be enhanced by Senexet House’s unique historical atmosphere and natural beauty.

senexetlogo3Senexet House was built in 1886 as a Victorian “cottage”, used originally as a country home. It was converted into a retreat center by a group of Unitarian laypeople in 1932 and welcomes all religious retreats, family gatherings, counseling groups, young people’s organizations, meetings, conferences, workshops and gatherings of every kind.
