Please note: there is no internet or cell phone service here. There is a landline phone available during business hours to make quick calls in case of urgency or to let your loved ones know you have arrived safely. Lucia Lodge, which is just down the road from us, sells internet access by the day.
Important Road Closure Update [June 2017]:
Due to storm damage from last winter, the highway leading to us is still under repair as of this writing. It is important for you to know that the only way you will be able to get to the Hermitage, before October, is over the Santa Lucia Mountains on Nacimiento Road. This road comes out on Highway 1 about 4 miles south of the Hermitage. It is accessed via Highway 101. Cal Trans highway repair crews estimate they will have the bridge north of us repaired in October, so access on Highway 1 from the north will resume at that time.
Before making an online reservation, please read the pages regarding Retreats and Accommodations and Rates. We are a working monastery with accommodations and an environment geared toward spiritual retreats. If you are expecting flash, posh surroundings and luxury, you won’t find it here. What you will find are clean, simple rooms that won’t distract you from your serenity and solitude, and breath-taking natural beauty.
We require a 2 night minimum stay in the same room; the maximum stay allowed is 14 nights.
For group reservations or to speak with someone call (831) 667-2456 x100. Thank you.
If you feel that the monastic environment at New Camaldoli Hermitage is appropriate for you, then check our availability for your desired dates by clicking below.
a 5% cancellation fee will be charged to your credit card on file, based on the entire cost of your reservation.
No reductions in stay duration or cancellations to a reservation are allowed within 7 days of arrival date (or after the guest has arrived). These changes/cancellations will cause the entire balance due to be charged in full to your credit card on file. If the room is re-booked, we will waive charges for the dates re-booked except for the 5% cancellation fee.
Because of our remote location and the difficulty in re-booking rooms on short notice, we ask for your understanding as we uphold this policy. Any nights that you pay for but do not use are tax-deductible as a donation to a 501(c)(3) charity.
