Below is logistical information about the retreat center and transportation.

If this is your first Woman Soul Gathering, you may wish to read the following details before registering.




Mar-Lu-Ridge is a retreat and conference center in the beautiful hardwood forests of the Catoctin Mountains of Central Maryland.  It is located on a high ridge overlooking the Potomac River with a spectacular three state view.  The tranquil setting is home to many birds and wildlife and offers a peaceful respite with walking trails, scenic overlooks, a labyrinth and many places to sit and be.  It is a ten minute drive from Jefferson, MD, and approximately 1-1.5 hours from Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI) and Dulles Airport (IAD).


Expect temps to be in the 70’s during the day and 50’s at night.  It is generally dry during May, although rain is possible.  We recommend that you bring layers.  All cabins and meeting spaces are heated.


Freshly prepared meals are served for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a large dining hall.  Vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options are available. Please indicate your food preferences and allergies when you register.  Fruit, snacks, and hot and cold beverages are available 24/7.


Accommodations are in cabins scattered throughout the woods. Each cabin includes 2-4 bedrooms, each with a private bath, with accommodations for up to 4 women per room.  All bedding and towels are provided. When you register you can identify a woman or women you would like to share a cabin or room with.


If you are flying, we recommend that you use Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI) which is between Baltimore and Washington. Alternatively, Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), west of Washington DC is also near the retreat center. They are both served by all major carriers with many flights daily. Both airports are approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours from the retreat center. Plan your flights to arrive no later than 10 am on Thursday and depart no sooner than 5 pm on Sunday.  We will provide ride-shares to and from BWI Airport and Dulles Airport. If you need overnight accommodations because of your flight times we have volunteers who will provide. When you register please indicate if you either need or can provide a ride-share and/or overnight accommodations. We will coordinate and be in touch with details within 10 days of the retreat.


Within 2-4 Weeks of the Woman Soul Gathering, you will receive an email with additional details about the gathering, a suggested packing list, and detailed directions to Mar-Lu-Ridge.
