Welcome to Light on the Hill,
Your Sacred Space
Perched high in the hills of Van Etten in Central/Upstate New York, Light on the Hill is a retreat center that provides a sacred space where seekers can find peace and solace away from their everyday worldly pursuits. The center is located on 236 acres of woods, streams, gorges, and walking paths, and offers panoramic views as distant as Pennsylvania.
Light on the Hill has comfortable cottages and huts that are ideal for self-reflection, where individual seekers can choose to be on their own or on a guided retreat. Inner Light Lodge—a spacious and light-filled dwelling surrounded by nature and glorious views—is ideal for groups engaging in inner work.
While Light on the Hill is considered a place of spiritual refuge, it is not affiliated with any single religious organization. Seekers of all backgrounds and beliefs are welcome.
