The Montserrat Motel is just steps away from the Loyola Dining Hall. It has 12 rooms on two levels to sleep up to 24. The rooms are clean and comfortable with heat and air conditioning. The view of the woods from atop our heavily wooded hollow is extraordinary.
These four apartments are set apart in a quiet corner of our campus and sleep up to 8. They look out into our woods and offer a great place for prayer and reflection. All have a kitchenette and a comfortable sitting room.
Our beautiful Chapel is where we celebrate daily Mass and reserve the Blessed Sacrament. The many large windows offer scenic views of the woods and God's creation. There are also two rooms for private spiritual direction. The lower level consists of a large, recently remodeled conference room with a wood burning fireplace, kitchenette and rest rooms.
Our kitchen staff prepares and serves wonderful, home-made meals for our group retreats and other functions, such as group meetings, conferences, luncheons and special celebrations.
Our Lodge is spacious and open. It has a full kitchen and meeting rooms. Overnight guests use sleeping bags.
Our 157 wooded acres include three prayer gardens, abundant wildlife and several miles of trails. The Retreat Center sits on a bluff above the Nishnabotna River and many of our trails go to the river. You will see a large variety of birds and deer are not uncommon.
Many people inquire about the variety of wildlife we have on our grounds. We are constantly amazed at the diversity of God's creation and have tried to capture some of it for your enjoyment here. Of course, nothing substitutes for experiencing this environment in person.
