The Retreat and Conference Center at Bon Secours, which has recently undergone a multi-million dollar renovation, sits on more than 100 acres in the rolling hills of Maryland. Although this location seems miles from civilization and a wonderful place to retreat, at night visitors can see (or visit) the lights of downtown Baltimore. All services–lodging, conference room, and sleeping rooms (with Internet access)–are housed in the large stone main building. Lodging is in a private room with one double bed and private bath. Amenities include a fitness center, an outdoor swimming pool, and public computers with Internet access. WiFi capability is available in the meeting rooms as well as throughout other areas of the building.

Bon Secours is a conference center designed to promote an inward focus, and as such the sleeping rooms do not have televisions or telephones (though there are large-screen tv’s in two beautiful lounges, cell phone reception, and a telephone available in the main office).
