Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Monroe Institute sits on 300-plus peaceful rolling acres with panoramic mountain views. Just three hours from Washington, DC, and 45 minutes from Charlottesville, VA, Monroe has called Nelson County home for more than 45 years.
We have two retreat locations on our Virginia campus. At the base of the mountain is the Nancy Penn Center which accommodates up to 24 guests. Roberts Mountain Retreat, is just a 10-minute drive up the mountain. Originally Bob and Nancy’s home, the main house can sleep up to seven guests and a separate purpose-built annex accommodates thirteen more.
Campus grounds consist of rolling hills, gravel roads for afternoon walks, areas to meditate or relax, decks overlooking the mountains, a labyrinth, two 6-ton rose quartz crystals, a pool at Roberts Mountain Retreat and a lake. Parking is available if you’re arriving by car.
