An intimate event venue in Lewes – convenient to all the local attractions, but with a get-away feel.
The Virden Retreat Center and Lodges are gaining popularity as a serene, natural campus with open grounds, an intimate meeting venue, and 23 guestrooms – perfect small events, multi-day retreats, association gatherings, socials, and weddings.
Wonderful gatherings have been hosted at the Virden Retreat Center. A primary attraction is our large, tented outdoor patio that immediately refreshes any event. Just off the patio is an open lawn where activities can continue – or just providing a quick nature fix to boost productivity.
Rest and Recharge
Down a short path from our conference center are two lodges with 23 well-appointed guestrooms, each with private baths and a screened porch. Guests can relax to the sounds of the surrounding wetlands before being lulled to sleep.
