WHAT WE DO 2017-03-20T00:29:36+00:00

Located conveniently just an hour from Washington D.C. and 25 minutes from BWI Airport, historic Annapolis and the inner harbor of Baltimore, thePlace has become a discreet refuge and recognized venue for purposeful gatherings and innovative thinking.

Solo & Private Retreats

Extraordinary authors, artists and inventors come to thePlace for inspiration and a quiet space to create, write and study.  Founders, social entrepreneurs, pastors and leaders of high impact organizations have come to think through challenges they face.  Many come to envision their next big endeavor, or to replenish their “empty tank”.  And couples often use thePlace for a weekend of renewal and fun.

Workshops & Gatherings

thePlace has become a regular venue for a wide range of purpose driven gatherings, including strategic visioning retreats, “off the record” conversations with thought leaders, marriage workshops, life groups, intimate fundraising events, celebrations and rehearsal dinners.  Over the past 17 years, hundreds of extraordinary people from 40+ countries have found their way to thePlace.  It has become a quiet and neutral platform from which breakthrough ideas have been discovered, new organizations conceived, and uncommon partnerships created.

Private Meetings & Dinners

Throughout the year, thePlace hosts dozens of special meetings and dinners — all with a purpose.  Regularly we convene interesting people around an “uncommon table” (extaordinary people who would otherwise never sit together) to discuss ideas, share stories, and find common ground.  And couples often schedule romantic evenings at the Guest House for a private, catered dinner

Waterfront lodging is available for a small number of guests.
