Conference & Retreat Center

Comfort, Charm and Affordability

At The Walker Center for Ecumenical Exchange, we believe that discussions around sensitive topics of social justice are best held in a setting that is warm and inviting—a place where our guests feel comfortable, welcome, and at home. While our mission and purpose evolved over the years, the simple yet profoundly heart-felt concept of hospitality is the legacy left us by Eliza Walker, and it is why so many of our guests return year after year.

The Walker Center for Ecumenical Exchange hosts conferences, retreats, workshops, meetings and events to groups seeking a venue for open discussion, contemplation, learning, rejuvenation, transformation, and play involving issues of peace and social justice.

Our facilities include:

  • Meeting space for day conferences and overnight retreats for up to 60 people
  • Break-out space for small groups
  • Overnight accommodations at the Walker House Bed & Breakfast and use of two houses on campus
  • A dedicated host to attend to any last-minute needs
  • A peaceful and beautifully landscaped outdoor environment for meditation, relaxation, and play

Our guests will enjoy:

  • Free breakfast for overnight guests
  • Coffee and tea served continuously throughout the day
  • Amenities such as free WiFi and use of a projector, screen, and easels
  • A convenient location close to Boston with easy access to public transportation and major highways.
