To be tranquil is to be calm, quiet and serene.  Such defines the retreat center, The Foehliage, located in the northern Kent County Maryland community of Galena.  The Center is approximately 42 miles from Wilmington, DE; 71 from Philadelphia, PA; 86 miles from Washington, DC; and 77 miles from Baltimore, MD making it an easy drive from key metropolitan locations for a retreat weekend.

Overlooking the beautiful Sassafras River, the 4 bedroom main house and its adjacent 3 bedroom cottage can sleep a minimum of 7 in single occupancy configuration.  Shared accommodations boost the number served to 12.  The facilities host a combination of private and shared baths.  Two bedrooms are available at ground level.

The Foehliage, operated by owner Gene Foehl, welcomes all retreatants. While grounded in the principles of the Christian faith, The Foehliage welcomes all groups.    Whether the goal is an individual hermitage retreat, a weekend strategic planning session for a corporate board or a group spiritual experience, the retreat center is open to serve you.

Walk the grounds and discover the beauty and serenity of the river. At rivers edge settle in a comfortable seat in the newly appointed boathouse. Discover a swing, a hammock or a pair of chairs and table overlooking the river. Settle in and lose yourself to the tranquility of the setting.

Packages will be customized to your needs at a reasonable cost.  You need only bring yourself and your intention for the stay.  The Foehliage staff will cater to your needs with full kitchen service for three daily meals and snacks and linens for your stay.
