Our location is truly unique. Tucked on the outskirts of the mighty San Juan Mountains, on the immediate edge of 5,000,000 acres of continuous National Forest, we have the seclusion, privacy, and the views to rival any venue in the country.

With majestic views of the La Plata Mountains, beautiful large log beams, and a warm, yet elegant atmosphere, the Grand Room provides a magnificent space for receptions with seating for up to 100 people.

The outdoor labyrinth at the Sophia Retreat and Event Center is an exact replica of the most famous one, The Chartres labyrinth near Paris, France.

Join us on the Mesa in Dolores, Colorado and revel in the magnificence and energy of the land, breathe in the spectacular views of the mighty San Juan Mountains, and enjoy easy access to world-class recreation opportunities, ancient Indian artifacts, and the unique culture of Southwest Colorado.
