Meetings and Retreats at Purpl™

Crafted for contemplation and community—Purpl's™ Sanctuary is an ideal space for organizational retreats and meetings. The beautiful and unique setting, combined with psychoacoustics designed to facilitate communication and comfort, make a perfect setting for reflection, learning, team-building and strategic planning. While many retreat venues are located in corporate-feeling hotel spaces or in more isolated outdoor settings, our facility is a happy medium for organizations and companies looking to gather, reflect, and discuss in a beautiful, comfortable, centralized setting. Choosing Purpl™ will not only provide something special for your group but will also support a local non-profit aimed at supporting small businesses, entrepreneurs, and freelancers.

Our central location:

Purpl™ offers a unique location for organizational retreats and corporate off-sites conveniently located in downtown Hastings-on-Hudson, NY, just 12 miles north of New York City. We are located within walking distance from the Hastings-on-Hudson MetroNorth Station and BeeLine bus stops, as well as many restaurants and shops in the downtown area. Purpl™ offers a getaway atmosphere, yet is easily accessible from New York City, Westchester, Rockland, Fairfield, and all around the New York metro area.

Our history:

Housed in a restored historic building on Main Street, the building functioned as a church from its construction in the 1850s until 2005 and was refurbished preceding our opening in 2011.


“It was a pleasure and a treat working at [Purpl].” -Seth Godin

“Holding our Master Juggler retreat for foundation executive directors at [Purpl] was just ideal.  Only a half hour from New York City, our participants felt like they were truly at a retreat – away from it all – and the beautiful and inspiring space added a great deal to the experience. The facility offered everything we needed, from comfortable break-out space to nearby hikes to personal recommendations for great local caterers.  The staff was exceptionally helpful and responsive throughout the planning process. Our participants loved it, and so did we!”        -Janice Simsohn Shaw, Association for Small Foundations

“The space at [Purpl] is the perfect environment for respite, taking stock, and engaging in inspiring work. Our team thoroughly enjoyed the retreat we held there and is looking forward to going back!” -Craig Haen,  Andrus on Hudson
