Retreat to an Island Getaway! Wendy and Darin invite you to relax, rejuvenate and unwind at Shanti Retreat  located on beautiful Wolfe Island, near Kingston, the gateway to the Thousand Islands. To reach us, board the Wolfe Island Ferry conveniently located in the heart of downtown Kingston. It’s a scenic 20 minute free car ferry ride to this island getaway.

The spacious century inn and cabins are located on a tranquil 11 acre property. There are sweeping views of the St. Lawrence and memorable sunsets from the outdoor dining patio.

Join us for either a Yoga Retreat Weekend, or a Mid-week Wellness Getaway. Delicious vegetarian meals are lovingly prepared in the Shanti kitchen.

Wolfe Island is an amazing place of natural beauty. By day, enjoy the country fresh air and commune with mother earth as you explore the island. It’s a cycling and runner’s paradise and there’s also Big Sandy Bay, a beautiful secluded sand beach, only 15 minutes away by car. On clear evenings don’t miss the opportunity to pause at the wonder of the country sky and stargaze. Savor the opportunity to nurture yourself by pausing from the ebb and flow of daily life.

No car, no problem. Call us to arrange a complimentary pick up once you’re on the island. Click here for alternative travel options. We look forward to welcoming you to Shanti. Namaste, Wendy and Darin
