Group Retreats


Gishtenh’s Place is nestled on a private eight acre Island overlooking the beautiful Killarney mountain range. Our Island retreat allows groups to have private interaction in a relaxed and natural setting.

Nestled in the traditional fishing Islands of the Anishnaabek, our Island sanctuary embraces the history to provide spiritual tranquility in a naturally rustic setting. The solitude and natural beauty is ideal for a productive environment away from daily distractions.

Gishtenh’s Place has plenty of tenting and tee pee camping space that allow for groups to embrace the experience by being close to nature. We can accommodate up to 15 individuals in our cottage, tenting and tee pee camping areas. There is plenty of space throughout the island to facilitate team building initiatives and group activities while still providing ample space for personal reflection.

Complete your group retreat with our Interactive Boat Experiences to Killarney and the historic Collins Inlet to Point Grondine. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery as we take you back in time through the traditional canoe routes of the Anishanaabek people.
