This is a wonderful place to go if you just want tog get away and relax for a few days. The food is surprisingly great, there is always plenty of coffee available and the religious services are short and relaxing. If you do not want to go to services, that is fine also, nobody tries to push you to go...

The hospitality of the monks of Holy Cross is well known and well deserved. Staying in their guest quarters, worshiping in their chapel, eating with them in the refectory, chatting with a brother or two during recreation is well worth one's time. A phone call to the Guest House master is all it will take. The rest is a monastery...

Holy Cross is a monastery, not a hotel. Many varies spiritual programs are offered in the spring, summer and fall, and I would highly recommend any of them. The monastery itself is large and comfortable with multiple site where retreat participants can sit quietly and think, meditate, pray or just enjoy the lovely views of the Hudson. Rooms at Holy...

Rooms are far from austere - they are simple. The views from many are unparalleled, and from most of the house and grounds. Food was delicious. Monks are friendly, and the gift shop had a nice selection of books, cards, chocolates, jewelry, and religious items. Internet is strong, for those who can't get away from it. Having a chance to...

This place is a Benedictine monastery in the Episcopal tradition with a guest house that hosts group and individual retreats. I went there as part of my church's Men's Group retreat this past fall and it was the most peaceful and relaxing weekend I had experienced in a very long time. This will definitely be a place I will visit...

I just returned from my 6th or 7th visit. True, this is not technically a hotel but it's a phenomenal place with great hospitality. It's a guesthouse and it is part of a Benedictine order of Episcopal (Anglican) monks. The Benedictines are renowned for their hospitality. There are towels and wash cloths and wonderful bathroom facilities. There are single rooms...

For the second year in a row my family has spend New Years weekend at Holy Cross Monastery. The accommodation is simple and comfortable. The food is out of this world. The monks have a ministry of hospitality and they welcome one and all. The religious services are optional and I spent most of the weekend enjoying the views of...

Holy Cross Monastery is just that -- the historic mother house of an order of Episcopalian monks. I visited there for retreats a number of times, particularly when I was a seminarian (which was longer ago than the date above). But anyone is welcome, even those whose purpose isn't especially religious. The setting, in the Hudson valley, is beautiful; and...

“Get something in the main house, facing the river and not too close to the elevator. If you are a couple, request St. Benedict (all the rooms are named after saints).”
