Grounds & Buildings

Adelynrood is situated on fourteen beautiful acres near the Massachusetts - New Hampshire border, just south of Newburyport and very near Parker River Wildlife Refuge. Tall pine trees are interspersed with gardens and trails and benches so one can walk or sit and reflect amid the beauty of nature.

The bedrooms offer quiet and simple meditation and journaling space. The covered porches stretch the length of the house and one can sit and rock, watching and listening to the birds and the breezes make their beautiful music. Guests can curl up in one of the several libraries and sample a broad spectrum of spiritual works – as well as a variety of poetry collections, an extensive mystery fiction section, wild life guides and many other treasures.

In addition to the Main Chapel where all may participate in the Holy Routine, there is a small chapel within the house on the second floor – the Oratory – where one can go for private prayer and meditation.

Adelynrood offers:

  • Sleeping Accommodations
    for 70, with some double rooms
  • Shared Bathrooms
  • Large Chapel
  • Libraries
  • Buffet Dining
  • Spacious Grounds

The Chapel and meeting rooms are equipped with hearing assists through our public address system. View a map of our property.

Adelynrood is handicapped accessible.
