Hermitage Reservations Available

Happy New Year!
We are accepting reservations for our hermitages for New Mexico residents wishing for some healing and quiet time. Should you be passing through the area and need some rest and quiet time, preferring not to stay in a motel, you are welcome to stay with us in a hermitage.

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.

As a guest in one of our Hermitage rooms, 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.

A stay in one of our Hermitage rooms allows for some much needed rest and quiet in this beautiful valley.

The rate per night for a hermitage is $105.00.

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. The Archbishop is currently allowing public mass. Therefore we have resumed public mass here. Our Sunday mass is at 9:30 as usual - however it is not in the monastic chapel, we have moved into the Dove building to allow for better social distancing.

For more information about Archbishop Wester's Press release: click here.

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.)

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 Monastic Community. 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. 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
