Retreat House

Why Not Stay Over?

The Marytown Retreat Center is an ideal place to remove yourself from the stress and busyness of every day life, and become renewed in peace of body, mind, and spirit.

The Marytown Retreat Center, established in 1997, is a three-story retreat house with gathering spaces nestled on 14 acres of peaceful grounds in the midst of Libertyville, Illinois. The Retreat Center is owned and operated by the Conventual Franciscan Friars and is affiliated with St. Bonaventure Province.

This prayerful facility in the spirit of Franciscan hospitality is located forty miles north of Chicago, Illinois and fifty miles south of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, just 4 miles west of I-94 on Route 176.

Providing “Sacred Space”

The Marytown Retreat Center welcomes groups and individuals of all Christian faiths for meetings, retreats, times of personal prayer and growth or to enjoy fellowship with like-minded Christians. Whatever the occasion, Marytown’s clean, simple, comfortable guest rooms and facilities, inspiring chapel and grounds, and hospitable Conventual Franciscan Friars and lay staff will provide “sacred space” to experience solitude, prayer, personal relaxation and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
