Venue

Mount Madonna Center is a conference and retreat center located on 355 acres of mountain-top redwood forest and grassland overlooking Monterey Bay, between Santa Cruz and Monterey, in Northern California.

Mount Madonna is a perfect location for events like Cerebrate. You can explore the many hiking trails, attend daily yoga classes, soak in the hot tub surrounded by the beautiful madrone forrest and enjoy nourishing vegetarian meals. Retreat from your busy daily life and connect with your center again.

The atmosphere is peaceful and the setting beautiful, from the magnificent vista of the bay to the surrounding redwood hillsides to the craftsmanship and style of the buildings themselves. All of this, and much more, should be experienced in person to be fully appreciated.

Housing is available in both rooms and in cabins, besides tents and campsites.

Rooms are in hotel-style buildings (no phones or TVs in rooms, however). Some rooms include a private bathroom with shower. Others have access to nearby shared (but private while in use) bathrooms and showers.

Cabins are in a lovely grove of oak trees and have electricity and heat, but no plumbing. A separate restroom with flush toilets and private shower rooms is nearby. The cabins are a 12-minute walk up the hill above the lake.
