Ravenstone Retreat Centre

Located just 2 hours from the heart of Vancouver and less than an hour from the Fraser Valley, Ravenstone Retreat is a perfect spot in the wilderness to hold your events, retreats and workshops. We can sleep a total of 10 people in rooms that are shared by 2 people. There are 2 shared bathrooms. The area is a small community of about 100 people year round with plenty of weekend warriors. Snowshoe in the winter, hike in the summer as there are plenty of trails through the area.

Your host, Marion Baker

I am your host and my name is Marion Baker. I will be on site to cook your meals and make sure you have everything you need. Having been the head cook and manager of a retreat centre for 13 years, I have plenty of experience accommodating the needs of workshop groups. I am now a registered counsellor, so I can also lend an ear in a pinch!

You may also find some extra love from Dudley, Pidge or Peanut, our resident meowers.

The food



 All meals are served buffet style with generous quantities and are made up of healthy, delicious choices. Whether it be a BBQ weekend, or strictly vegetarian, we work together to create a menu that your group will love. 


If you are gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian or vegan, you will be well taken care of. Please inquire about any other food allergies and intolerances.

Manning Park

Thirty minutes from Ravenstone's doorstep is the gorgeous Manning Park Lodge. The Lightning Lakes are a chain of 7 small lakes that have an easy hike surrounding them. The length of the hike is up to you. You can also rent canoes and paddle boards for the day. There are always plenty of ground squirrels that chit chat to one another. You may see a deer, a moose, large birds and maybe even a bear!


Hope, British Columbia

Just 10 minutes down the hill, amongst the snowcapped mountains,  you will find the small town of Hope, BC. It will be your last chance to get gas and order pizza! There is a little bit of shopping on the main street with local arts and crafts. The Blue Moose cafĂ© will help you with late' withdrawal if you find yourself with a craving.
