The retreat facility is located near Central Idaho’s Dark Sky Reserve. This is the first International Dark Sky Reserve in the United States and the 12th created in the world. While not located within the Reserve itself, the facility is located a few miles from the border on top of a ridge where most ambient light is blocked and the views of the night sky are truly amazing.
