“My night terrors began to decrease. I was less tired because I wasn't waking repeatedly in the night. I became less isolated and enjoyed my contact with other staff and clients. I spoke at dinner without feeling social anxiety. I was sharing thoughts on all manner of things.”
“I highly recommend Karina Inzunza, with my recovery, she made a miracle happen.”
What do we mean by that? Well come and find out!
But until then—it reflects our all-pervasive quality standard that extends beyond the beautiful location and the award-winning minimalist architecture of the complex, to our staff, programming, cuisine, services, and the personal care and attention we’ll provide you. And yes, we go the extra mile to cater to your individual needs.
Clave Therapy Retreat is an exclusive, personalized, non 12-Step, boutique residential retreat with a bilingual Canadian Clinical Director. It’s located 30 minutes northwest of Owen Sound ON, on the Bruce Peninsula, surrounded by the Georgian Bluffs, part of the famed Niagara Escarpment, 3 hours from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.
With our highly personalized program we can accommodate 1 addictions recovery guest or 1 individual therapy client or 1 couple at a time.
Please note we don’t offer withdrawal management (detox) services or on-site medical supervision. If you require this assistance we’d be happy to refer you to some agencies that do. There are two hospitals within a 15 or 30 minute drive. Guests from outside Ontario are responsible for their own health care fees should that be necessary. Please have your own travel health insurance.
Private and Secure
A maximum of 1 individual guest or 1 couple at one time, in your own Loft Guest House and Bunky adjacent to, but private from, the Founders’ cabin.
Your Loft Guest
House and Bunky
At the Retreat you’ll discover an exclusive Loft Guest House and its Bunky beside. You’ll have privacy when you need it, but conviviality when you want it. The Loft is an open concept modernist wood structure with 3 walls of tall windows and a furnished living-dining area with a fully equipped kitchen on the main floor. On the second floor you’ll find a loft-style bedroom with a King-size bed with spectacular views of the water and bluffs, a smaller bedroom with a bunk bed and closet plus a modern 3-piece bathroom.
Your bunky is located just beside The Loft Guest House. It features a Queen bed and extra bunk. On its roof, accessible from The Loft via a bridge, you can relax in privacy taking in the view. Great spots to journal, read or chill. Housekeeping is provided weekly and laundry is available for you to use in the main cabin basement. There’s plenty of room to hang out or meet on our 82’x40’ cedar deck under our expansive roof. All designed to help you optimize your recovery experience.
We have a beautiful flat shale rock beach a few minutes down the path to the shore with our yoga deck, chairs, shaded grove and areas to take in the sunshine. The shallow water entry is safe. Please bring your water shoes! The bay ranges from flat calm to rapid squalls driving oceanic waves. Exquisite. Immediately below the house is a quiet private harbour owned by our friends…an ideal swimming pool to snorkel in. Within a 45 minute drive there are several miles-long sand beaches.
The Bruce Peninsula
We are located in a unique area of fauna and flora as well as beautiful landscapes and parks with the escarpment bluffs dropping to the lake. All within an hour’s drive.
