Annual Winter Wonderland - 2017

Come for an unprogrammed weekend! Bring yourself, your family, and your friends to an open weekend this winter. You'll be sojourning at Powell House.  We'll feed you at regular intervals and be here to answer questions . . . otherwise, your time is your own.

Who knows what the weather will be. Winter 2015 had LOTS of snow! Winter 2016, not so much. There are games to play, puzzles to work, and activities to consider:

  • Cross country skiing - bring your own skis
  • Ice skating on Lea Pond
  • Snow shoeing
  • Sledding
  • Walking to the bird sanctuary
  • Downhill skiing and snow tubing nearby
  • Reading, puzzles, and games
  • Enjoy the fireplaces

Cost: $150/single; $250/two people; $350/family

NOTE! There is NO dinner on Friday - hearty snacks will be served at 8:30 pm

We realize Friday travel is often a challenge. Don't feel the pressure to rush.


Powell House is the conference and retreat center of the 

New York Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
