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 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!
Dear Arnold and Canterbury staff,
Thank you for a wonderful stay at Canterbury! The rooms were clean and comfortable, the grounds beautiful and serene, and your staff so kind and accommodating! We felt like part of the “family.” 😁 Canterbury was a perfect setting for our students to relax and refresh after their busy days. And due to an unexpected schedule change, we even got to spend a beautiful day exploring the lake and trails.
Special thanks to the catering staff who adjusted their schedule to meet our needs and served the most delicious, hearty breakfasts. Please thank everyone who had a part in our visit. We love Canterbury!
May God continue to bless this special corner of the world,
All the best!
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!
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.
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 am blown away by the experience that our group had at Canterbury, it was beyond our expectations. The beauty, the hospitality, the professional quality, and the extravagant grace to just be - it was perfect! We are eager to use Canterbury again in the future!"
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.
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.
