Sanctuary is a spiritual retreat center in Western Montgomery County, Maryland, less than an hour’s drive from downtown Washington, D.C. It is a place of natural beauty and serenity, where you can experience rest, relaxation and renewal.
We are located on 28 acres of rolling hillsides and farmland in the Agricultural Reserve. This is a wonderful place to enjoy the wonders of nature – whether strolling the acres of fields and woods, or lounging in a comfortable seat in our gardens.
The monks who lived here in the early days were horticulturists, and the plantings are varied and rich. There are fruit trees and vegetable gardens, as well as perennial herbs and herb beds.
