Canterbury hosted our Softwash-A-Palooza convention and training event and I couldn't be more pleased. The way the staff there took care of us combined with the incredible beauty of the surroundings gave our event a warms and "homey feel" that we could have never gotten at a hotel facility. I would highly recommend Canterbury for a top-notch corporate event experience with that something extra added in.
Our company has held meetings as well as Employee Appreciation functions at Canterbury Retreat and Conference Center. We have always enjoyed the Canterbury staff; and have had exemplary service for all events. Canterbury has always made us feel welcome; has provided excellent variety of food; and maintained a Christian atmosphere for our activities. Canterbury has consistently gone above and beyond to ensure excellence in all of our events.
Canterbury is a holy space ... the perfect place for quiet reflection and prayerful listening to God. Come ready for excellent meals, thoughtful service by a caring staff, and comfortable meeting rooms in a peaceful setting that invites contemplation. I leave refreshed every time, and always long to return.
Canterbury es un sitio sagrado … el lugar perfecto para reflexionar y escuchar a Dios en silencio. Ven y disfruta de la deliciosa comida, el espíritu servicial del personal, y las facilidades placenteras en un ambiente de paz que invita la contemplación. Cada visita refresca el alma y alimenta el espíritu. ¡Por esto, siempre quiero volver!
Canterbury Retreat is an amazing place of peace and serenity, coupled with an atmosphere that promotes healing and encourages fresh vision. Strategically located on the edge of one of the world's great tourist destinations, Orlando, Florida, is this beautiful, spiritual oasis. It's in the middle of everything and yet offers a total escape and a place of refreshment. It's an amazing, life-changing place. I can't wait to go again!
I have enjoyed the Canterbury Conference Center since the 1970's. It has been an ongoing source of blessing to me - not least its peaceful tranquility. Canterbury is reaching new highs with Fr. Jon Davis at the helm. I am enthusiastic about what the Lord is doing through his leadership. Come and enjoy.
The Canterbury Retreat Center has been our ‘go to’ place for team meetings for the last few years. The grounds are peaceful and secluded and it's the perfect location to get away from the office! We love the friendly staff and they take care of all the details.... from Computers and AV equipment to coffee service and lunch. I like the convenience of making one phone call and our entire event is planned!
As Jesus commands us to pray and demonstrates so in his own moments of solitude and retreat, so must we. Canterbury Retreat and Conference center is a haven of rest, a place of renewal, a moment to hear again. I would dare say, the very existence of Canterbury is an act of obedience.
Como Jesus nos manda a orar y lo demuestra en sus propios momentos de soledad y retiro, asi debemos nosotros. Me atreveria a decir, la existencia misma de Canterbury es un acto de obedencia.
As pilgrims along this Journey to the Promised Land(TM), it is important for each of us to find that space where we can be still and know that He Is God. Under the direction of Fr. Davis, Canterbury Retreat Center is poised to become a vital part of how the Church in Central Florida can regain its sense of mystery so that God can be revealed to our hearts.
You gave us the most amazing gift of hospitality this week. You gave us a beautiful space - and time. You took care of us and fed us (wow), if we lacked for something - you provided it. The rooms were spotless, light and airy - looking out on exotic trees and changing landscape of wind on water, sun and shade and wildlife scurrying about - providing endless entertainment.
I have had the pleasure of holding several professional training sessions at Canterbury Retreat & Conference Center over the last few years. From the booking process and pre-session communications to the days on-site, I could not ask for a better partner. If you are looking for a unique setting for a meeting or retreat and want a quality experience with more character than a standard hotel conference space, I recommend you use CR&CC.
Canterbury Retreat Center is an oasis in the city! Warm, servant-leadership and true commitment to Christ mark all of the staff of Canterbury. Combined with great facilities and natural beauty it is a place where people can rest, listen to God and others, learn, make decisions and grow in faith. You’ll love Canterbury!
