Visitors are always welcome at Holy Assumption Monastery. Our gates are open from dawn to dusk, and both Orthodox pilgrims and those who are curious about monasticism and Orthodoxy may stop in during the day, Tuesday - Sunday. On Mondays the monastery grounds are closed for the sisters' personal retreat day.
If you are interested in speaking with the abbess or one of the sisters, please call ahead so that we can arrange to welcome you and to give you a tour or talk.
Due to space limitations, the sisters may not currently accomodate overnight guests at the monastery. If you would like to stay in Calistoga, we recommend checking with local establishments:
Our Store (look for the sign Monastery Books & Gifts next to the red door along the Washington Street sidewalk) is open , and we bake cookies to order!
