Dao House, which sits on over 81 acres of land backing up to the Rocky Mountain National Park, hosts one of the largest freestanding log structures in the United States.  We invite you to get away from it all in our mountain retreat with 360-degree views of nature with the best view of Longs Peak.  We are 7.5 miles south of Estes Park on Scenic Highway 7, and a 90-minute drive from Denver.  Our mission is to provide a space that is both productive and revitalizing to make the most out of your retreat, conference, wedding, seminar or group event.  With a unique array of offerings from the traditional conference services to ancient wellness practices and therapeutic methods, we invite you to customize an experience to best benefit your group.

Retreats

We host a variety of retreats, and hold space specifically designed for your attendees needs.  Allow your participants to walk away with the purpose and intention you are providing here at Dao House.  Our 2,500 sq. ft. Longs Peak Room is perfect for movement, yoga or sound healing, and with its private balcony it allows participants a moment to step away and enjoy the scenery outside.  For retreats during the wintertime, enjoy our fireplace in this room to make your space cozy and warm.  For the more intimate retreats, there are smaller rooms available that can be setup according to your group’s needs.  With the indoor space rental, you'll have access to our outdoor locations as well from our Mountain Canopy site to our Rustic Pines and Aspen Meadow.

Make your retreat even more rejuvenating with one or more of our wellness services.  Participants can enjoy an herbal foot steam, biomat session, specialty massage or infrared sauna session.  We have group tai chi, qi gong, Dao yin or meditation classes, or Yi Jing (I Ching) readings with one of our Certified Wu Dang Instructors.  You can also set the tone for your retreat with a ceremonial bon fire.  Let Dao Staff get the fire going, and you create the energy for your retreat from beginning to end.  Please inquire how to make your retreat stand out amongst the rest!
