Retreat to Nashotah House 

Our historic campus is a beautiful and tranquil place that inspires all who visit. The House also offers the perfect atmosphere and resources for individuals needing a place for solitude or a space to write, with access to the Frances Donaldson Library. We invite you to consider hosting your next group gathering or personal retreat at Nashotah House.

Campus Location

Tucked away in the woods overlooking Upper Nashotah Lake, Nashotah, Wisconsin is located in Waukesha County’s “Lake Country.” The geography offers a peaceful atmosphere that feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Milwaukee or Madison, but is still relatively nearby to the amenities of both cities. Nashotah is surrounded by many lakes, woods, parks, and historic towns and villages with award-winning restaurants and desirable school districts.
