Durward's Glen Retreat and Conference Center

We found a sense of peace visiting this beautiful area.  The only sounds were the birds, and several bullfrogs in the pond. 

"A place of natural beauty, history, and spirituality

Durward's Glen is located in the beautiful Baraboo Hills National Natural Landmark, 30 miles north of Madison near Devil's Lake State Park. The pristine 40-acre property offers scenic hiking trails, picturesque picnic areas, a pond, a rambling brook, and a white oak tree over 350 years old. The property has always possessed an inspiring spiritual character, which has attracted visitors from all over the world. Durward's Glen is recognized as a place for reflection, peace, and inspiration.

Grounds are open to the public daily from dawn until dusk."

The Glen also offers lodging. As both a former home to painters and poets, and a novitiate house for the Order of Saint Camillus, Durward's Glen is the perfect place for a personal or group retreat. Given its location in the Wisconsin Dells area, it is also the ideal base for a restorative vacation.
