SOPHIA HOUSE: Hesed Haven
Nestled in the woods overlooking Serenity Pond, Hesed Haven is a log building for year-round use. With both stairs and an elevator, the two levels are fully accessible and designed to provide hospitality for all persons. The building was dedicated in November 1998.
The large meeting-dining area seats 100, and will accommodate 300 at a stand-up reception. The meeting room and its outside deck overlook fields, woods, and Serenity Pond. A fireplace with gas log invites informal gatherings in cooler weather. The fully equipped institutional kitchen allows groups using the facility to prepare their own meals or have them catered by the Sophia House staff.
Two lower level dorm rooms with bunk beds each sleep 20. Bathrooms on both levels are fully accessible, and the two lower level bathrooms have showers.
Hesed Haven offers a hospitable, peaceful environment in which to conduct conferences, retreats, meetings, banquets, picnics, receptions, or day camps. It is available for one-day or multi-day use. The trained staff is available to assist conference planners in designing every aspect of their program. Staff will plan, cook, and serve meals according to the needs of the guests, and are flexible about meal scheduling.
