Plan your visit to our special property
Our campus consists of the Founders’ farmhouse, twenty-one cabins, a lodge, and a 5,200-square-foot conference center known as The Barn at Boyds Mills, 10 miles from Honesdale, PA.

The Barn has several relaxed classroom-like areas, a Great Hall, an outdoor fireplace and a giant kitchen – there is space for meetings, meals and just hanging out. The Lodge contains eight private rooms with private baths, and a great room for getting together with others, or just relaxing.

“I love The Barn, and I'm delighted that we met there in the living room. The Highlights Foundation trademark is individual attention and small, highly personalized groups. The Barn is a beautiful space for learning.”
