Located on woodlands and meadows in the small hilltown of Leyden, Massachusetts, the elevation of Hilltop Haven and its separate owner’s or manager’s quarters offer spectacular and far-reaching views of mountains to the east and south.
With a pristine natural environment and well-maintained retreat facility and grounds, the center is host to a wide variety of retreats, which results in a stable and active customer base. The center attracts customers from both the New York and Boston markets as well as groups from Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and New Jersey.
The architect-designed “Cube House” is located .8 miles from the retreat center and has a big deck with a hot tub to enjoy the view. Heated tile floors downstairs, wooden floors upstairs and 2 wood stoves keep the house cozy in winter. Wood paneling and wood ceilings throughout lend warmth and ambiance year-round. The updated and open living areas on the top floor have windows that frame each view of nature, and one feels like being in a tree house!
Hilltop Haven’s housing for retreat and conference guests is in three different structures, all near each other.
- The Conference Center building has three bedrooms with nine beds;
- The Main House has three bedrooms with twelve beds;
- The Guest Barn two bedrooms with up to five beds;
- There is also a charming but rustic hermitage cabin with double bed, chest of drawers, and a writing desk that offers 3-season lodging.
The guest quarters have 7 full- and 3 half-baths, with four bathrooms en suite and four bathrooms conveniently located next to the rooms. There is bathroom in the foyer and a handicap-modified bathroom in the Great Room. By code, there is a handicapped ramp to access the dining area and a pool lift available.
The Retreat and Conference Center Accommodations are “retreat elegant”, with single and up to five person accommodations.
Meeting and common spaces:
The Great Room is 1,320 square feet with high ceilings, clerestories and round accent windows in addition to the front view windows. Supplies for groups include yoga mats, straps, and blocks, zabutons, BackJacks, and a variety of chairs for comfortable seating. Three oriental rugs and an antique harvest table add to the room’s beauty.
The facility boasts 2 hot tubs and an outdoor heated swimming pool.
The solar array of 182 panels generates most of the electricity needed for powering the facility, and mini-splits in the dining room and upstairs bedroom help save power and provide heating and A/C. There is a fireplace and a woodstove on the main floor for guests’ enjoyment. An outdoor deck looking over the pool and upper hot tub to the expansive vista is perfect for summertime meals. There are 3 driveways—2 for parking near the center and one to access the lower fields.
The center comes “turn-key,” with a full-equipped kitchen and dining facility, full linens and bedspreads, and much of the artwork and décor will come with the sale. Stable, experience staff is available as a major asset! A very full booking schedule, customer contacts, and organizational aids are also included.
