Hermitage Reservations Available

We are accepting reservations for our hermitages for New Mexico residents wishing for some healing and quiet time. Each single-occupancy hermitage is simply furnished and includes a kitchenette with a refrigerator, toaster oven, microwave, crock-pot, coffee maker, teapot, etc. in order for you to be completely self-sufficient while staying here. Please bring your own food - we are happy to help out if you run our of staples, such as milk, bread tea/coffee etc.

You are welcome to enjoy the walking trails on the property, or take a walk down to the river and find a quiet spot to meditate on the beauty of nature and God. You may walk the stations of the cross and make your way down to the small grove of trees tucked away in solitude. Regretfully, for now, we are not able to offer access to any public areas in the main buildings, such as chapel, gift shop, library etc.

The rate per night for a hermitage is $105.00.

Please do come and allow yourself some much needed rest and quiet in this beautiful valley.

Please call the Guest Office at 505.757 6415 Ext. 112 to reserve your hermitage. COVID-19 expectations and guidelines will be provided for you when you confirm your reservation.

You are most welcome!

We continue to follow the occupancy guidance from the Archdiocese of Santa Fe and the Office of the Governor. We are also in compliance with the Health Order from the Office of the Governor which requires a 14-day quarantine for non-New Mexico individuals traveling to NM either by plane or vehicle.

(Hotels and other places of lodging are expected to enforce the 14-day travel quarantine for any out-of-state visitors and report non-compliance to state health authorities.)

Our Lady of Guadalupe Abbey is an Olivetan Benedictine monastery located in the Pecos River Canyon 25 miles east of Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. We offer group retreats and individual retreats. Everyone is welcome.

Please visit us for a day, weekend or longer, or join one of our group retreats, a class from our School of Liturgical Arts, our School of Fine Arts. We are always happy to welcome you.

The Abbey now enters the 71st year of continuous monastic presence in Pecos. We look forward to serving the needs of our neighbors and guests for many years to come.

Abbot Aidan's Statement regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Pecos Benedictine Monastery is taking preventative and cautionary measures to ensure the safety and health of our guests. We are following the guidelines outlined by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for Community and Faith-Based organizations, along with recommendations from the New Mexico Department of Health. We are following the CDC’s guidelines in terms of environmental cleaning and disinfection recommendations for all of our guest rooms, meeting rooms, and common areas. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and update our website as new information comes in.

We also continue to pray for our world at this time. There is much going on, many people are suffering and fearful for the future. As a monastic community, we believe it is our part to pray for the needs of the world and humanity. We do this every day during our monastic office and at the daily mass.
Even though we are separated, we unite ourselves with you in spirit. God is with us, God is with you, and He will never let us down. He loves you.
   —In Christ, Abbot Aidan, OSB
