A beautiful
place to be

Skye Farm’s little corner of the Southern Adirondacks has gorgeous views and plentiful activities no matter the season. Spring brings birdsong, wildflowers, and warm breezes as you explore the trails, launch a canoe, go fishing, and enjoy the sunshine with friends. Summer fills our site with the laughter of children at summer camp, and long days let you take in the lush green of the forest, the refreshing waters of Sherman Lake, and the amazing starry sky. Autumn paints our trees with striking reds and golds, bringing crisp days perfect for going on a hike, painting by the lake, and gathering around the campfire. Spending time in this beautiful setting allows space for reflection, connection, prayer, and rejuvenation.

Food Service

Each meal brings a wonderful time of fellowship for our guests over delicious home-style meals prepared daily and served in our dining hall overlooking Sherman Lake. Meals are served only from Mid-May – August in our seasonal dining hall. We seek to meet special dietary needs, providing we receive notice in advance. If you are coming on a retreat during other months, you are able to cook your own meals in Bass, Ogden or Shippey Lodges.
