EASTOVER ESTATE & RETREAT has been undergoing a complete renovation and will soon emerge as a residential holistic retreat center dedicated to serving the greater holistic community. Centered around an evocative Berkshire “Summer Cottage” with a sun-drenched Terrace café, juice bar, library, meeting rooms, courtyard and luxury bedrooms, Eastover is located in the cultural hub of the Berkshires, and only minutes from Tanglewood, Kripalu Center, Shakespeare & Co. and dozens of other cultural venues. An ideal location for teachers, groups, organizations and companies seeking retreats and trainings. Eastover offers spacious workshop and program rooms with multiple meeting and studio facilities, including well-equipped commercial kitchens ideal for all styles of cooking classes. There is a wide range of overnight accommodations to fit everyone’s budget, from rustic, to contemporary, to luxurious. Located on 600 acres, cradled to the east by the Housatonic River and October Mountain State Park, Eastover is a mix of inviting lawns, courtyards, meadows, gardens, forests, woodland trails, and panoramic views. The site creates a sense of expansiveness and a feeling of serenity where people can meet outside the bustle of everyday life. Eastover is unaffiliated with any specific spiritual tradition, and its eclectic open-hearted receptivity aims to support the continuing emergence of holistic and ecological ideas capable of renewing our culture and leading the way to a sustainable planet.
