At this time during the COVID-19 pandemic, Light on the Hill is unable to provide food for individual retreats. We will update this page as soon as the situation changes.
Light on the Hill offers retreatants and groups the choice of bringing their own food and preparing it themselves (retreatants can do so in their cottage kitchens and groups in the Inner Light Lodge’s commercial kitchen), or, we can provide and prepare it for you. Meals at Light on the Hill are gourmet vegetarian with many vegan options. We use organic ingredients wherever possible.
We can accommodate simple dietary restrictions such as gluten- and dairy-free (vegan). However, if a person has a more restrictive diet than this, we suggest that the person bring his or her own food. Those wanting meat can bring cold cuts and cans of tuna, etc. but no meat is allowed to be cooked on the premises. We ask that no liquor be served. We receive high praise about the food we serve.
We provide coffee, tea, and light snacks (fruit, nuts, nut butters, and rice cakes) throughout the day in the lodge.
Individuals in the cottages or huts who elect to have meals have two choices: They can
1. make their own breakfast and lunch with food already provided in the cottages and receive a hot dinner prepared elsewhere and brought down to the cottages ($35 per person/day), or
2. bring their own food for breakfast and lunch and have a hot dinner brought down to them at dinner ($25 per person/day).
Small groups in the cottages must bring their own food for breakfast and lunch, and they can have a hot dinner brought to them ($25 per person/day) or provide their own dinner.
