Since 1931, over half a million people have discovered our oasis just 10 minutes east of the Saint John, New Brunswick airport.  They have come to the Villa alone or in groups to be nourished and renewed in body, mind, and spirit.  Secluded from the world that goes on outside its gates, our grounds have a timeless beauty and provide a serene setting that people return to again and again.   

The Villa Madonna Retreat House is nestled in 102 acres of rustic woodland on the shores of the beautiful Kennebecasis River.  We are open year-round with every season offering its’ own natural beauty.

Visitors enjoy the peace and quiet that surrounds them on the paths through the woodlands and along the river any time of year. Inside the building, visitors find casual, comfortable facilities that provide a relaxing environment in which to rest, reflect, and be renewed.
