Welcome to Thirteen Moons

Whether you’re in a transitional phase of life and need to get away for quiet self-reflection or you want to gather some good friends to celebrate life, Thirteen Moons is the place to be. Our facilities are also ideal for intimate small group meetings where a connection to nature and nutritious, flavourful vegetarian food are important.

Since 2001, our mission has been to inspire you to embrace your best self and to support you on that journey. Under the Thirteen Moons Wellness umbrella, holistic nutritionist and owner Louise Racine promotes a sustainable and empowering philosophy about food through:

• informative vegetarian cooking classes and the Thirteen Moons seasonal cookbooks

Every season offers something unique to experience. Our meaningful getaways, self-care retreats, and wellness workshops are all tailored to meet your needs.
