The Ocamora Retreat Center offers limited seasonal accommodations ideally suited for small, intimate learning groups of between 12 - 24 participants. Programs typically start in early June and run through mid-September of each year. Unfortunately, Ocamora is not available for individual / private retreats, weddings or family reunions at this time.

Our home-like ranch is situated in a beautiful and remote natural setting. The following description reflects existing housing options. Please note that all bathroom facilities are shared and include a solar wash house and outhouses.

The Cloisters is a charming U-shaped adobe compound that feels very private and contained. In addition to the following rooms there is a spacious library, a small kitchen (including stove, refrigerator, coffeemaker, dishes, etc), a shared bathroom (with private shower stall), and a covered outdoor seating area that includes a striking kiva fireplace. The patio area is centered around a beautiful old apple tree and perennial flower beds. Linens and towels are provided with all Cloister's rooms. Typically sleeps between 5 - 10 people depending on the group / individual choices.

    Orchard accommodations (rooms, cabins, and yurts) are all placed in relation to a 100 year old apple orchard. The view to the east is spectacular and includes the nearby mountain and fields. The feeling is vast and open. All spaces in the orchard are served by a spacious and clean solar wash house and a number of conveniently located outhouses. Linen and towels are provided with all orchard rooms , cabins , and yurts.
