What distinguishes Personal Retreats at Desert Harbor?
We are intentionally small. It may be more lucrative to have numerous spaces to fill every night, but this is not our mission. We purposefully have only one guest accommodation. All our energy, training and resources are aimed to nurture and create an unforgettable experience of rest and inspiration for one or a few. By taking the time to personalize every aspect of one’s experience at Desert Harbor, we believe guests come to be known to a degree that just does not happen very often–and can be deeply moving.
We believe in the grounding and healing potential of extended time spent in nature. Our location was specifically chosen because it is at the 'end of the line,' and at the edge of 'civilization.' (But only 50 minutes from Santa Fe or Albuquerque.) It constantly inspires us to dream and create new outdoor spaces where guests can interact with nature, yet still be quite comfortable.
We believe that design and space are not mute forces; they are integral in creating a sense of shelter and place for connection. No expense has been spared in fashioning our spaces, and they are ever changing with time.
Our services of life coaching
and spiritual direction
contribute to deep and abiding change in people’s lives every week. We believe these services could greatly enhance your stay should you choose to add them.
Our facility is eco-friendly and completely off-the-grid. The sun powers 100 percent of our electric consumption. Our buildings are a hybrid of ancient means of keeping structures warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and the newest and greenest building materials. Our love for the beauty of God’s creation compels us to be better stewards of it.

One of the distinctive features of Desert Harbor is our desire to respect the individuality of people and allow each guest to customize his/her retreat experience. For this reason, we have several al-a-cart options to choose from according to your desires and resources. If it would be helpful, the directors at Desert Harbor are available to assist in assembling a retreat experience to meet your unique goals. Below is a price listing to help you envision your personal retreat.
Our rates are reasonable for what we offer. However, we want our services to be available to those who simply cannot afford them. Please talk to us about a discount if you need one.

On the sea of life it is sometimes difficult to find our way and remain en route in the midst of gale-force winds and illusive coordinates. Harbor and rest are needed to gain bearing.
At its simplest, this is why we retreat... to go to a place that is away, different, and conducive to the rest and reflection needed to find who we are and where we are going.
Retreats are not just for people with “issues,” rather they are for anyone interested in making his or her life one of significance. Many are more conscious about maintaining their bodies and autos than fine tuning the thoughts and beliefs that map one’s experience of joy, meaning, purpose and legacy.
We invite you to retreat...to anchor, rest, and recreate.
