Due to construction and renovation of the Saint Benedict Guesthouse and Retreat Center, the facility will be closed from June through March 2019 while the new building is tied into the existing structure and necessary upgrades are complete.

The turnaround and elevator from the south side parking level to the Abbey mall and church level will be closed from June 11 through the end of construction. There are spaces reserved on the mall level on the north side of the Damian Center, #9 on this Walking Tour map, for vehicles with disabled parking permits.

Keep track of construction progress on the Guesthouse Renovation webcam.

Please contact for more information.

The Saint Benedict Guesthouse and Retreat Center has rooms with one full/double bed, one queen bed or a limited number of rooms with two twin beds available for guests. Rooms with one full/double bed or one queen bed will be assigned to married couples and single occupancy guests whenever possible. Although a single person may be assigned a room with two twin beds, they will not be asked to share the room. Rooms with two twin beds are suitable for married couples (if requested) and same gender family and friends.

Each room has a private bathroom (with shower) and we provide bed linens and bath toweling. Although we provide small soaps, guests bring their own toiletries. Additional toweling or blankets are happily provided on request. Extra towels and supplies are also available on the fourth floor for guests to help themselves.

The guesthouse is a smoke-free building. One may choose to smoke on the west end of the building, or outside, 10 feet away from any entrance. Unfortunately, we cannot allow the burning of candles or incense in the rooms.

The guesthouse is locked each evening around 9 p.m. It reopens in the morning around 5 a.m. You are free to move about the hilltop as you wish. Punch locks are located at either end of the lobby level (3rd floor) of the guesthouse. The code can be found in your key packet.

Upon leaving, please leave all used linens on the floor and leave the door ajar so that the housekeepers will know the room is vacant. Upon departure, please return your key by depositing it in the lobby key drop near the office door (parking lot level).

For lost and found items, please check with the guesthouse office at 503-845-3025. All items will be held for one week, after which time items will be donated to a local charitable organization. Mount Angel Abbey is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
