Accommodations & Attractions

Overnight Accommodations at Kordes Center

Finally. A really different place to stay—thank God. 

We’re not your typical hotel environment. And we don’t want to be. At the Kordes Center, there are no loud bands. No loud guests. No congested streets. And no congested shops. Even better, we’re less expensive than a chain hotel—sometimes by 50 percent or more. Tourist attractions are close, but not close enough to disrupt why people come here.

The Kordes Center is located on the spacious monastery grounds of the Sisters of St. Benedict. That means real peace and quiet. Time to think and reflect. Time to go to church with sisters in a soaring monastery (that looks like a castle).

We’re here to host groups, overnight guests, and private retreats with sincere hospitality that’s tough to find elsewhere. That’s most important to us, so that’s what we focus on. To put it simply, it’s our way of life.
