Internet service is available now in Gyatso Lodge as well as most of the area within the circle of the main buildings. Access to the internet is available for cabin dwellers in the downstairs sitting room of Gyatso Lodge.

Guests are expected to follow all Nova Scotia’s health and safety protocols during their stay. You will be safe within your retreat space and have access to private bathroom facilities. Social distancing, masks, hand washing/sanitizing guidelines apply when entering all common indoor spaces.

During your stay, you are welcome to enjoy the land and walking trails around the property. The Pavilion is also available to those who might wish to sit, practise yoga or other physical exercises.
