Watson Homestead welcomes individuals and groups of all religious denominations, beliefs, and faiths.
Dedicated to the memory of Thomas Watson’s wife, the Jeannette Kittredge Watson Chapel inspires all who enter. The cut stone building is located at the north end of the Main Lodge. It seats 200 and has an overflow area that can accommodate an additional 50. A 7-foot hand-hewn wooden cross is suspended from a stone column at the back of the altar. The chapel contains a public address system, grand piano and organ.
The Watson Homestead has been the venue of choice for many spiritual retreats, past and present, and 2015 is no exception. In April, we welcomed a group of women who became empowered through participation in rituals based on native cultural traditions. In September, the Falling Leaves festival will be hosted here, which promotes the culture of the Seneca Nation of Indians. Many spiritually enlightened people have also passed through our doors for yoga and wellness retreats - we hope you are next!
