Come and enjoy the opportunity to “be still…”

Look no further for an idyllic setting in which to rest and restore—to reclaim your spiritual dominion—to stay overnight on business or vacation, or to hold Christian Science Associations and other group meetings.

A secluded retreat

Arden Wood is an ideal environment for spiritual refreshment, inspiration, and healing. Come for the day or stay overnight—and enjoy the serenity.

Private guest rooms are spacious and inviting, with modern furnishings and amenities, like hairdryers, wireless internet service and cable TV. TV listings include channels on which to hear the weekly Bible Lesson, hymns, inspirational talks, and live church services. Rooms are available with twin, full, or queen beds for single or double occupancy. A variety of delicious food is available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in our main dining room. Room rates and meal prices are very reasonable.

Enjoy a peaceful walk through our blooming gardens along groomed pathways lined by majestic eucalyptus trees. Stop by Shelt’ring Wing, a delightful enclosed “sunroom” at the edge of the pathway, perfect for quiet reflection or private conversation. Our Bible Reference Library is open 24/7 and features an array of study guides and periodicals in an inviting, peaceful room. Also, the Christian Science Reading Room is just a few blocks away. Sights and activities around the San Francisco Bay Area are readily accessible by public transportation.

Arden Wood is conveniently located to downtown San Francisco, two airports (SFO and OAK), Marin County, Oakland and the Peninsula. We look forward to hosting you soon!
