The Quiet House has been a steady presence above Laity Lodge for almost fifty years, and the time for repairs and renovations has come. We’re working with trusted partners to maintain the spirit of the house while ensuring it will last another fifty years—and beyond.


In the fall of 2024, the Quiet House will close its doors to guests for renovations to begin. We truly regret that we won’t be able to host you while work is underway, but we’re excited to welcome you back to this special place. Watch this page for updates as the process unfolds.


The Quiet House is a secluded, contemplative retreat built in 1978 under the direction of former Laity Lodge director Bill Cody. Located a short hike from the Lodge, this house provides an opportunity for silence, stillness, meditation, and prayer for an individual or a married couple.

The one-bedroom limestone house is furnished with a queen-size bed—bedding and linens are included—and features a living room, small loft, bath with tub and shower, kitchen, and breakfast room. The kitchen is equipped with an oven, stove, microwave, refrigerator, coffee pot, utensils, and dishes. Some basic items are provided such as salt, sugar, coffee, tea, and paper goods. Also on site are a gazebo, porch swing, hammock, and barbecue pit with charcoal and lighter fluid.
