Welcome to Centering Porch
Leave your frenzy at the gate.


Centering Porch is both a place and an experience. Hospitality is our business. That’s hospitality in its broadest, most inclusive sense. It’s not just comfy chairs and a pleasant view. It’s hospitality that allows each guest to discover his or her own gifts. It’s hospitality that invites Spirit to be present. We offer farmhouse kindness in nature’s sanctuary. Restful in every season, our home is yours to enjoy as a gathering place, contemplative retreat, or creative wellspring. Whatever brings you here - taking care of business, taking time for self-renewal, or taking a break from the ordinary in anticipation of the extraordinary –Welcome.
Leave your frenzy at the gate.
