Trains to and from Metro North’s Wassaic train station run regularly out of Grand Central Terminal in New York City via the Harlem Valley Line. When possible, the retreat center offers a courtesy shuttle bus for groups of four or more guests who need to be picked up and dropped off at Wassaic Station, which is located 30 minutes from the retreat center. Please email or call the Main House office to inquire about availability of the shuttle at least 14 days before your retreat begins.

Check out the Metro North Schedule.
