The site is perfect for group or spiritual retreat rental as it sleeps sixteen guests comfortably and the grounds are serene. It would be a great place to have a wedding group, a family reunion, or an intimate staff retreat for a small office group. Johanna Mosca, the yogi-owner in residence, leads group retreats upon request and maintains a lovely home setting at the Lodge. Having resided in the Sedona-Verde Valley area for twenty years, Johanna can refer you to all of the best restaurants and places of interest and a great number of gifted healers, intuitives and bodyworkers to enhance your journey. Viewing available by appointment.

Guest Comments:

Johanna is super organized and prepared our Contentment "nest" beautifully. The place is immaculate, with sacred touches everywhere. Our group of 11 was the first group she has had there, and we had a beautiful experience. Very quiet, peaceful, and close enough to Sedona's sacred energy and hikes. Roy Holman, Yoga Retreat Leader

As for Contentment Lodge, I really liked it.  I would rather stay in a lodge than in hotel rooms.  I liked sleeping there, and I liked that the place was sort of isolated and that we could hear coyotes.  Cornville and Harry's Hideaway are cool.  I give Contentment Lodge two thumbs up.  Elaine Schuler, a guest in Roy's retreat.

 

Beginning and ending the day at the Contentment Lodge was like waking up and returning to the comforts of home. I received exactly what I needed during my stay, am working to continue the lessons learned and maintain the peace I achieved in Sedona until my next visit.  Juliette Blount, Nurse from NYC

Oct. 22, 2012--Johanna: I can’t believe it’s been over a week since I left contentment lodge. I just wanted to write and let you know how lovely the surroundings were and how much I enjoyed my time there. The quiet nooks that you have set up around the property are perfect for solitude without leaving the house, and the sunrise is actually a full-blown event. The evening is actually the best though…the stars in sky without any distractions, are just magnificent. Thanks very much for sharing your joy-filled space.

Sincerely, Maureen
