• View of Bullards Bar from Pendola Road

Skyline Eco-Contemplative Retreat Center is a beautiful rural retreat center for 1-12 people. This affordable, quiet, healing place cultivates awareness of the sacred throughout our human community and the natural world. 

We are located 30 miles north of Nevada City/Grass Valley off Highway 49. The Yuba River, the Tahoe National Forest and South Yuba River State Park are all nearby. Our expansive view looks over the blue water of Bullards Bar reservoir, surrounded by mountains and trees. The quiet is enriched by sounds of birds, creek and wind.

The Center is available by reservation from March 15 to November 15 for workshops, trainings and retreats for groups and individuals, and can accommodate up to 12 overnight guests. Group meetings can be held in the large living room of the Ranch House (built 1880), the Barn loft (recommended for movement and music-making), the Meditation Gazebo, or our lush shaded lawns.

Groups and trainings at the Center have included:

  • Meditation and spiritual groups
  • Enneagram and gestalt awareness workshops
  • Music and movement trainings and workshops
  • Writer’s retreats, both individual and group

Our facilities include the Hermitage, the Madrone Cabin, the Ranch House and the Garden Apartment. A one-week minimum stay is requested.

Personal Retreat











Join us at Skyline among the Ponderosa Pine, Douglas and White Firs, Incense Cedars, Black and Tan Oaks, Dogwood Trees and Sweet Birch.

Deer live here, and bear and cougar. So do gray fox and wild turkeys, red-tailed hawks and robins and wrens.

Bridger Creek sings to us as we fall asleep at night. It joins a chorus of bird song to waken us in the morning.

The beautiful Yuba River flows to the north and south of us, out of the Sierra Nevada Mountains at whose feet we find our home.

Come out of the city. Find that narrow road off the too-traveled highway. Follow it to its end. Open the gate that has been closed for too long.

Inhale what has been forgotten. Breathe deeply the scent of Home.
