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.
