Grateful Meadows is a place where you can pause time, leave behind the stress of everyday life, and just simply unwind.
We are unique in that we offer two different services: the warm welcoming embrace of a retreat center for our human guests, and the safety, peace, and compassion of a sanctuary for the animal residents. We schedule a variety of animal-centered events which give people the opportunity to really form a bond with our animal ambassadors, to get to know them as individuals with their own needs, desires, hopes, and dreams.
During scheduled events – whether they are brunch with a bunch of chicks, painting with a pig, or serving drinks with the donkeys – our guests will enjoy their stay on the property for the night, weekend, or a full week. We aim to pamper and to help rejuvenate everyone so, in addition to bonding with the animals, we provide a space for guests to relax, to meet other like-minded and compassionate people, and to learn. From yoga to juices cleanses, art classes to photography sessions, we are not just a sanctuary. Grateful Meadows offers the best of both worlds: a retreat AND a sanctuary!
