Natural Surroundings for a Personal Retreat

Located in the Pigeon River State Forest, Song of the Morning is nestled in 800 acres of pristine forest on the Pigeon River. It is home to bald eagles, trumpeter swans, elk, deer and an abundance of other wildlife. Scenic trails throughout our property provide the perfect opportunity for hiking and biking in the summer and skiing in the winter. Lakes and sink holes are nearby for swimming. A large, open space along the river is available for outdoor recreational games, and a 20x20 foot platform in the forest provides the ideal spot for personal reflection or a mid-day meditation. Consider visiting for your own personal retreat – to simply be in the high vibrations of this beautiful spiritual environment and take a break from the busy world. Enjoy delicious vegetarian meals, evening meditations and hatha yoga classes while you renew your spirit. Check out our lodging page for options.
