Guest House Retreat & Conference Center is located midway between New York City and Boston, ten miles north of the Long Island Sound coastline. The most common travel hubs are Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks and Old Saybrook Train Station. Guest House is not served by public transportation and so arranging a ride with a fellow group member or private car service is highly recommended.
