Welcome!

2008_KnittingRetreat_1The Wiawaka Center for Women has been enriching, inspiring, and celebrating, the growth of women through unique and relevant programming for over a century. A stay at Wiawaka offers a restorative experience in a natural and peaceful setting and includes healthy, fresh meals, fitness programs, lectures  and writing workshops. Wiawaka is located on one of the most beautiful properties on Lake George and conveniently close to Lake George Village. Founded in 1903 as a retreat for women, Wiawaka today still offers a peaceful getaway. A stay at Wiawaka is a respite from the hectic pace of life. Plan to come for a workshop, the day, an overnight or longer.

Wiawaka has immaculate grounds with gardens, a labyrinth, 1500 feet of shoreline, a fairy trail and hiking.  We also have a large dock (recently rebuilt) & boat house with a swimming area, paddle boats and breathtaking views. Day visitors and season pass holders enjoy relaxing on the grounds during the summer.

Our historic guest houses throughout the property provide a comfortable overnight visit. Linens and towels are provided for guests. Overnight stays include meals and some programs.  Visit our calendar to see what may be happening during your stay.  Scholarships are available for guests with a financial need.
